Hi All, I'm pleased to let you know that from 20th April, Easter Sunday, to 24th April, my new book The Gift of the Dark is available to download free from Amazon. The Gift of the Dark is the first from the Return of the Dark series. So if you like Dark Fantasy, with interesting characters why not check it out?


The Gift of the Dark (The Sword of Altimar) Part 1


Chidar was known as the 'key-maker', with a natural understanding of the great flows of energy within the universe. Over the years he had earned a reputation that struck fear into the hearts of men, becoming one of Hyder's greatest sorcerers. But he kept his biggest discovery a closely guarded secret. For years, Chidar spent his days mapping the pathways between the different dimensions, and his nights looking for a way to travel between worlds.


Finally, he created a solution; the Dimension Key. A device that was part magic, part mechanics and one that would enable him to open the gateways and travel between the worlds. It was a discovery that he believed would make him immortal. That was until he made his biggest mistake and took an apprentice. His name was Xanon. It was a mistake that Chidar was soon to realise could cost not only his world, but all others, a terrible price.


Now 150 years after Xanon's death, the witch called Gudrun and her friends trail a fugitive they only know as 'the man in black' across the plain of Edd and into the twisted forest on the edge of Volares, a Kingdom synonymous with evil.


In a race against time they finally come face to face with their quarry in the Dark Fortress, the place where Xanon once ruled. It is here that they experience the terrible power that the man in black wields. It is a confrontation that they barely survive. But when the dust settles, they finally understand the man in black's true purpose and realise that they must stop him at any cost.


Also The Gift of the Dark (Part 2) will be available on a countdown offer also from the 20th April starting at $0.99:
