Avalon was dying ...

Or at least that was what the dreams said. Charged by Faith and Justice, Knight Wanderer Isolde and the Radiant Priest Tulok must abandon the arid Realm of Setesh and travel across the sea to a land of ancient magics and even stranger customs. A place where the Fae and Morpheum creatures hold court, and the Gods themselves walk alongside mortals! Racing to end the machinations of a rogue Vidria, and the growing corruption of a crazed ancient of untold power, can the knight and her priestly companion reach them in time, or will the land be forever severed from its magic?

Tread lightly in Avalon, for the land is alive, and watching ...

C.S. Kading and Tony Fuentes return to the World of Sanctum with the second installment in this epic sword and sorcery series.


Five Stars!
Readers will be left speechless at the twists and turns from one chapter to the next. There is no downtime, and there are no long stretches of wordy narrative. Each of Kading and Fuentes's characters is a fantastic stand alone entity, well-developed, and exudes his/her own captivating personality. From Isolde and Father Tulok to the Fae who inhabit Avalon, they are all memorable in their own right and truly make the novel all the more extraordinary. Readers will not want to miss the introduction, it catapults them into the story. In the six short pages preceding chapter one, the authors take readers on a journey like no other. Moving from zero to sixty in a matter of a few sentences, it will leave you breathless.
