Three of Swords by Michael Jason Brandt

Nomination badges earned:


Peace catapults toward conflict when Emperor Eberhart abdicates just as the land most needs leadership. Royal families fight for the throne, heedless of a rising threat from abroad. Meanwhile an ancient, sinister presence looms in forgotten corners, awaiting the opportunity to reclaim a world it once enslaved…

Yet some stars shine brightest on the darkest nights. An unheralded prince places honor and conviction above privilege and prestige. A quiet soldier’s unwitnessed heroism saves a kingdom. A common servant boldly confronts the face of unnatural evil. And the unlikeliest of love blossoms in the midst of hatred and violence.
