In the elven city of Evingrad, Lucius Nostra suffers from recurring nightmares of a black dragon killed long ago. The frightening dreams signal the ominous return of Kraegyn and the dragon tribes who wreaked havoc on the peoples of Azuleah. Confused and uncertain of his role in the gathering storm, Lucius joins his elf brother Siegfried on a perilous journey to reforge the Requiem Sword--the blade which once defeated Kraegyn.
Interview with Daniel AdornoRead Interview
Why did you write the book?
I wrote The Blade Heir because I'm a huge fan of epic fantasy stories with memorable characters, exciting adventures, and a strong sense of morality. I wanted to pen a novel which paid tribute to classic fantasy tales like Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and A Wizard of Earthsea, but also inject some modern fantasy elements into the story.
Who are your favorite authors?
J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Ursula K. Le Guin, Stephen R. Lawhead, Ray Bradbury, and Robert Louis Stevenson.
What do you plan to do with the funds you raise?
I plan to use the funds to hire an editor, commission map art for the interior of the book, cover expenses for online marketing, and pay for costs associated with publishing through CreateSpace and Amazon.
How long have you been writing?
I started writing when I was 12 years old and received a typewriter from my Dad as a gift. I wrote lots of goofy short stories about race cars and monsters. I even tried to my own local newsletter, which only my brother and I read. In college, I took writing much more seriously and enrolled in some creative writing courses that really inspired me to write a longer narrative.
Fun fact: The Blade Heir was written during finals week of my sophomore year of college!
Is there a book trailer for The Blade Heir?
