Born to Rule. Lived to Heal. Died to Save. Born Again.
Aberthol Nauile doesn’t know that he beheld the creation of the world, ravaged by a war of the gods, and began anew; or that he led legions in a war that had raged since the dawn of time; or that he once rode on a dragon with his father. All he knows is that he awoke in a coffin deep within a tomb, hearing voices in his head, and now the whole world thinks he is their savior.

Interview with the Author
Q: What made you want to write epic fantasy novels?
A: I grew up on this stuff: J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen R. Donaldson, Roger Zelazny... I could go on and on, but it was this kind of epic fantasy with dragons, and magic and fantastical worlds that filled my imagination as a kid. So the question is more like how could I not write an epic fantasy?
Q: Do you consider Shadow Swarm a Sword & Sorcery type epic?
A: There are certainly elements of sword and sorcery in the novel. With big sweeping battles and magic I poured all that I love into this story. I also worked to create a world with a rich history, political machinations and fantastical creatures of every kind. Again, this is the stuff I love. Shadow Swarm is also clean without the language and sex found in many books today, so it can be a great epic fantasy book for teens to read as well.
Q: Why publish Shadow Swarm as an eBook?
A: I love the new world we are living in, which allows us to publish Shadow Swarm in paperback, hardback and eBook format, giving you the option to read it in the way you prefer. It’s a great time to be a reader.
