The Chronicles of Tethera, #1

The Forged Prince

By Michael Laird

His quiet life was shattered when Queen Moriganna decided a common stable boy could be forged into a powerful weapon against her enemies.

Yet these are the lands of Tethera, where nothing is ever quite as it seems. 

For his own part, the young man, now named Llew, intends to show the self-styled Queen of Deceit that even a weapon forged for evil can turn in its maker’s grasp and strike in an unexpected direction—most especially a weapon with a mind of its own.

Forced to venture forth through the wilds, to usurp a throne he does not desire, to save a kingdom he has never seen, Llew at once finds himself pursued by an ever-growing array of deadly enemies.

Although he has gone forth to do the impossible, it now seems impossible he will live long enough to even try.
