War is brewing. The hunt begins. Exile is over.
Revan Teutevar is the exiled heir of an extinct country fed up with a life in hiding. He’s also a boy on a manhunt with blood on his hands, tracking his mother’s kidnappers. Aided by a renegade leprechaun and a smooth-talking minstrel, the young Teutevar pursues his foes across a land on the brink of war. Faced with trials at every step, Revan learns quickly that, out of exile, the line between right and wrong is blurred in the best of times…and nonexistent in the worst.More info →
Outside, a host of savages has laid siege. Inside, it’s every man against himself.
Langden Hawke’s bloody history has led him into some pretty tight scrapes, but none tighter than Fort Valiant. When the mercenary captain sells his sword to the fort’s desperate defenders, Langden believes he’s finally found an escape from his violent profession — if he can stay alive long enough to cash in the contract. Hopelessly outnumbered, it doesn’t take Langden long to realize it isn’t only the hordes of wildmen that have trapped him…it’s the demons from his past as well.More info →
Widowed. Hunted. Exiled. From the ashes of destruction, a saga begins.
When her country is conquered and her lord husband slain by his best friend, Guinevere, Lady of Athel, has only one thing left to live for: her young son Revan. Forsaking vengeance to honor her husband’s last wish, Guinevere flees with Revan — the last heir of the Teutevar line. Exile, however, will not come easy. Pursued by ruthless invaders and a wilderness full of bloodthirsty savages, Guinevere’s only allies are a loyal spearmaiden and a deranged mountain man. The Lady of Athel may not fear death, but should she fail, Athel’s last hope falls with her.
Into Exile is a introductory prequel that takes place before the events of Out of Exile in the world of Teutevar Saga. Fans of Joe Abercrombie’s Red Country and Miles Cameron’s Traitor Son Cycle will enjoy the Teutevar Saga and its unique blend of traditional medieval fantasy in a gritty, American Western landscape.More info →
A phoenix is reborn. Peldrin will never be the same.
In an era long past, a dying race landed on the shores of Athel and changed the fate of Peldrin forevermore. Passed down by generations of lore masters, The Founding of Athel chronicles the coming of the Eedari and the ascent of the Athelings as one of Peldrin’s great civilizations. The Founding of Athel is a history of Revan Teutevar’s people and their homeland. It can be enjoyed as either a standalone short or a Teutevar Saga companion piece.
As shadows lengthen and darkness falls across Peldrin, everyone has a score to settle.
Headstrong and impatient, the young, exiled lord, Revan Teutevar, has his heart set on returning to Athelon. Between him and his ruined homeland, however, lies Vhaleons: a city ruled by corruption and greed. Chasing the threads of a dangerous conspiracy, Revan and his friends soon find themselves entrapped in a game of power and deceit. One false move and the lives of the three drifters are forfeit.
Captain Nikoma is a young woman desperate to prove her worth in a man’s world. She’s a loner, an outsider even amongst her fellow Simarru riders no matter how well she swings a sword. But war with the Imperium League is at hand, and with it, the chance to step out of her father’s shadow…if she can stay alive long enough to change her stars.
With war looming, the west has forgotten about Arund. Even so, the one-time Hero of the Republic and would-be high king hasn't been idle. East of the Heimwall, he’s rebuilding his capital and amassing a motley horde to stake his claim in the growing chaos. If he can hold them all together — fierce Jotun, barbaric Periwaneth and treacherous Emorans — the White Knight could very well make good on his vow to rule all of Peldrin.More info →
