Release Day! Conviction’s Pain – Book Two of The Mahaelian Chronicle

Hey everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ The day has arrived, and my second novel (which is two more than I once thought I’d ever be able to write) is available across Amazon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Avidar and its people are reeling in the aftermath of a deadly attack.

Alun Dronald, now Lord General of Avidarโ€™s armies, must contend with a murder investigation, political games, and growing religious fervour, while Delโ€™Ahrid, seemingly the most powerful man in the kingdom, plans his next move.

Elsewhere, Brice Serholm serves an enigmatic, powerful being with direct ties to the growing conflict and its ancient roots, while Khyber, the only free Elvayn, makes a discovery which could put an end to millennia of war and strife.

The Mahaelian Chronicle continues.

And the true enemy will finally be revealedโ€ฆ

If you’re one of those readers who hasn’t yet read my work, here’s the low-down:

A Song of Sacrifice is a prequel and takes place approximately three thousand years before the first novel, Betrayal’s Shadow; it’s a quick read, just over half an hour, and can be read either before BS or after it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Click here to order your copies.

The beginning of a conflict which will change two worlds…

When Ordaefus, Song Priest of the Elvayn, discovers that his people are capable of a new, incredible ability, his brother, Mahaelal, believes that this new way is wrong – an affront to the very foundations upon which the Elvayn built their civilization.

And when war breaks out, both brothers must make a choice – do they fight to protect what they believe in, or surrender, and exchange freedom for restriction?

What choice do they have left, when all choices lead to destruction and death?

Betrayal’s Shadow is the first book of The Mahaelian Chronicle – where it all began. ๐Ÿ™‚ Click here to order your copies – also available in hardcover and paperback.

My first novel, and the first in a trilogy.

Betrayal casts long shadows โ€“ none know this better than Brice Serholm.

As a decorated general in the kingdom’s elite Blade Knights, Brice had to overcome the taint of treason and betrayal to attain his rank. When Brice and a force of Knights are sent on a mission to investigate claims of rebellion in one of Avidar’s provinces, their ship is magically attacked, and the resulting investigation tests every oath Brice swore before his king.

Meanwhile, an inhuman infant escapes the capital’s Slave-Hold, the king’s mistress comes into possession of a unique dagger, and Del’Ahrid, the king’s most trusted First Advisor, begins to question everything he built his honour and life upon.

Events are in motion that will test every man, woman and child โ€“ and a conflict is coming that will shake the kingdom to its very foundations.

So begins the Mahaelian Chronicle.

A Song of Conflict is the second Mahaelian Chronicle Tale, and takes place concurrently with Conviction’s Pain – so spoilers abound for those who haven’t read Betrayal’s Shadow or Conviction’s Pain! Click here to order your copies.

Three thousand years have passed since the Seeds fled the Elvayn homeworld.

Elvayn society is strictly controlled by Mahaelal’s Disciples, and any dissent is punished with Judgement and death. But there is hope, in the form of a secret society called The Circle, and in the choices of Aedral, the son of a Disciple.

Ancient secrets will be revealed, and far-reaching choices must be made, even as two worlds teeter on the edge of total chaos.

And the Mahaelian Chronicle continues…

There we go, folks; everything you need to know. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you do decide to give this South African writer a chance, I can only hope that you enjoy what you read. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Book Birthday to me! ๐Ÿ˜€
