For five hundred years the Gods have united the Three Nations in harmony.
Now that balance has been shattered, and chaos threatens.


A town burns and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, seventeen year old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back. If he stops, they die.

For two years he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now there is another searching for him - one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair, and he knows the true nature of the curse. Magic.

Leap into an all new world of epic fantasy by New York Times Bestselling Author Aaron Hodges.

Author Interview

What made you start writing epic fantasy novels?
Well, growing up on a steady diet of David Eddings and Christopher Paolini (and later George R. R. Martin), this has always been the genre I most identified with. That classic quest, with a young man setting out to conquer the world, resonated with me as a young reader. As an adult, I wanted to give that idea a darker twist though. And thus, the Sword of Light trilogy was born.

Who would enjoy this novel?
Anyone with a taste for the dark and gritty side of fantasy, particularly readers of authors such as Brandon Sanderson and David Gemmell. If you like happy endings and heroic escapes where everyone makes it out alive, this might not be the story for you!
