Chains that bind the soul are stronger than iron... In the two centuries since the Upheaval and the fall of the God King, the Faceless One’s rule has encompassed the world. He is revered, worshiped, merciless, and he stands unopposed…. Sixteen-year-old Leitos crushes stone by day, and by night shivers in a cramped cell. A slave’s life is brutal and short, but absolute obedience ensures the gifts of peace and bread. All that changes when his grandfather rises against their inhuman slavemasters, forcing upon Leitos a freedom that he never sought. Now, hounded by the Faceless One’s demon-born Hunters, Leitos struggles to heed his grandfather’s last words: “Seek the Brothers of the Crimson Shield.” Those words are his only hope to discover the truth of his people’s enslavement, his only guide to find a secret order of heroes … and they are the words of a madman.

About James A. West

My name is James, and I live in a fantasy world. Okay, not really, but I write about them! It's Stephen King's fault. I read The Talisman when I was thirteen, and I've lived in my fantasy world ever since. As soon as I finished that book, I was hooked. I knew I was going to be a writer. Of course, someone forgot to inform life about my writing plans, so I've had several different jobs! I proudly served in the US Army, spent a year as a long-haul truck driver with my wife (who is also my high-school sweetheart), and even attended the University of Montana. While I was there I enrolled in a creative writing course, and I couldn't resist the call of writing any longer. Next thing I knew words started to flow and worlds were born. Now I live and write in Montana with my wife and my bodyguard, a Mini-Schnauzer named Jonesy. I also eat copious amounts of chips and salsa :) Life is good!
