(The first book in the Iron Angel series)
A novel by

Upon their father's death the three sons of Vannen were stunned to learn of their legacy: swords of gold, silver, and iron - and a lost kingdom. It seemed like a fairy tale, until they were attacked by a hideous creature that fought on even after it was beheaded. It was then that the brothers learned their lands were held by the Cairnlord, a powerful wizard steeped in evil. He was centuries old, perhaps not even human, and he had no intention of giving up the throne.
