When recklessness provokes a Royal household, Venir and his friend Melegal the thief are forced to flee the city. In pursuit, the Royals soon unleash some unusual powers against them and start to close in. Can Venir and Melegal survive the impending doom that is about to befall them? Only Bish knows, but Venir has been secretly keeping evil forces at bay for years. He is the Darkslayer, a man possessed by a mantle of power he cannot let go.
Enter the underlings, an evil race bent on the destruction of mankind.
Enter the Royals, the self-absorbed rulers of the world of Bish.
Enter the orcs, halflings, dwarves, ogres and other races, some good, most bad, all caught in the maelstrom of treachery and seduction.
Strife and turmoil are constant features of life as humans struggle to survive among orcs, ogres, and the most evil of all – the underlings. As the underlings rally all of the evil forces they can muster to destroy the mystical and legendary Darkslayer, something unexpected has upset the delicate balance between good and evil on the world called Bish, making the Darkslayer a pawn in other insidious disputes.
*Five out of Five Stars* – Sacramento Book Review
"Halloran shines in giving a compelling narrative. Every fantasy subspecies is jam-packed into the book. While the main characters will punch a hole in your heart and settle down in it, it is the minor characters that add the depth to the plot. From the casual fantasy subscriber, to the die-hard Tolkienist, everyone will find something to enjoy."
