For generations, the blessed warriors and magi of the Order of Eternal Defenders had fought to defend their lands from the endless hordes of demons.
The legendary warrior Kraasian Darkwood has lost friends and family to the demons. When Tyr’eshal, his twenty-year-old son, accepts the offer to wield an almost forgotten power, Kraasian realizes there might never be a better chance to defeat the demons forever.
But the resurgence of an underestimated foe with their eyes set on Tyr’eshal, and the challenges of waging a war with just a few Eternal Defenders will test Kraasian and his hope. More so when the cost of victory might be higher than he anticipated.

Early work on the third book began in May 2018 and the early first draft was finished in December 2018. Edits to reflect changes made during the drafting of the first two books were done over time but major changes are on hold for now.
Apart from the main in-progress trilogy, I’m working on several side-projects, most of them in early stages. These include a shorter full-length novel titled Legend of Sagittus, depicting the end of the Elven War and the life of the eventual Eternals, Sagittus and Aphelia, in their primes.
Another project, under working title Looming shadows – would describe the first demonic invasion, the story of Jandiel Darkwood and his friends founding the Order of Eternal Defenders, the background and founding of the Shadowflame cult, and the beginning of the Magic-Breakers. Probably a full-length novel as well.
