Born a mage and incapable of controlling his powers, Odin Karussa is forced to hide his gifts from his adoptive father for fear of persecution. Therefore, his lifelong dream of enlisting in the military is an impossibility—that is, until he’s discovered by a high court mage after running away to the capital. In a world of dying magic, his gifts are too great to be ignored. This unexpected opportunity gives him the chance to train amongst the royal family.
Life amongst nobility isn’t easy, especially as a commoner. But Odin is being watched by a benefactor whose good will is shrouded in mystery.
Will Odin ever become the knight he desires to be? Or will fate deal him an unlucky hand?
After a deadly attack on one of Ornala’s greatest settlements leaves not only the country in disrepair, but claims one of the most important people in Odin’s life, there seems little left to live for. Grief-stricken and out of his mind, he flees the kingdom with his eyes set on discovering the true meaning of Death from the Elves.
Along the way, he befriends a fellow Halfling who leads him through the Elven forest and to the capital. There, Odin is taken under the wing of a sexless creature, whose vast magical knowledge leads him toward the discovery that may change his life.
The Elven Book of the Dead, written and created by the infamous Dark Elves, promises a reward Odin can only dream of.
There’s only one problem. Hidden within the depths of the Elven castle and guarded by the greatest of magics, it will take a feat of willpower unlike anything Odin has ever attempted to secure the book.
With nothing left to lose, Odin must make a choice: to return home and begin life anew, or to risk the greatest magical offense in human history to bring back the most important person in his life.

In Rebel, the fourth novel in the Brotherhood Saga, Odin is arrested and charged for deserting his kingdom and using illegal magics. Believing that his ties to the court will spare him the death penalty, he appears before the highest magical court in the land expecting none other than life in prison. But when he is sentenced to serve time in the Cadarack Prison for High-Maintenance Criminals—a place fabled for forcing their prisoners to fight to the death in armed combat—his options for escape appear even more hopeless.
In The Brotherhood: Blood, Odin began his dream of becoming a knight and journeyed as a squire across many lands in service to his king.
In Sword, Odin returns to the capital to participate in the knighting initiation ceremonies. He is confident that he will triumph in his final test where victory is determined by first blood drawn. After Odin wins, he is unexpectedly denied the title of knight. Ejected from the army and devastated by the loss of his dream, Odin prepares for his journey home.
But he has found favor with his ruler and is made the king’s champion. Odin then becomes the king’s right hand, traveling across the kingdom and setting right what is wrong.
After a shocking attempt on the king’s life, it is discovered that dark forces are amassing in the dead lands just beyond the edge of the kingdom.
Only Odin and his party of heroes can the save the kingdom…
The Hornblaris Mountains — home to the great Dwarven people — are a miraculous sight to behold, but beneath their towering peaks lie monstrous dangers. Carmen Delarosa, a travelling merchant’s daughter, has lived within the mountains and even travelled their passages her entire life without issue. But when a drake appears along a routine trading route and slaughters an entire caravan, including her family, Carmen vows to take justice into her own hands. Alone, in the Deep Roads, and with only her wits to guide her, Carmen will attempt the impossible: to hunt, and kill, the Drake of Ehknac.
After successfully hunting and slaying the Drake of Ehknac, Carmen returns home to the fanfare of thousands. Declared a hero by the mayor of Ehknac, word of her exploits quickly spreads, but it isn’t until a letter arrives from the king that Carmen realizes the extent of her fame. In this correspondence, he offers her the chance to join the King’s Watch: an elite organization of soldiers that not only protects him, but also his lands. The offer, while tempting, seems too good to be true; and not only will she have to journey to the capital of Dorenborough to audition, but survive on the way there.
