March to Shadows

(The second book in the Judges Cycle series)
A novel by

Raiders descend from the North, conspiracies take root, and the war drums beat.

In March to Shadows, the second volume of The Judges Cycle, the kingdom of Galeberth must face off against ancient foes, while the Templars from Nolterland will confront the secrets hidden by the shattering of their homeland's once great empire.

Princess Heiradra, responsible for little and heir to nothing, wants only to eat her breakfast in bed and avoid the boring aspects of court life. However, when a cart carrying a wounded Sylvan Elf and two beaten Templars arrives at the palace the morning of the grand ball, there is no avoiding royal politics.

With the return of the two Nolterite Templars, King Velat sees an opportunity to make peace with the raiders from the North. Fattened up on cake and with a hundred-strong entourage, Reslo and his Templar companions must do the impossible and negotiate with the exiled remnants of their northern kingdom - a kingdom shrouded in secrets and tales of blood and sacrifice since the old empire was split. If the Northern barbarians don't kill the three companions, the plots and intrigue of Galeberth's royal court just might.

Praise for Road of the Lost: Book One of The Judges Cycle:

"Road of the Lost is a fast-paced fantasy with an RPG feel... I really enjoyed the jocular, brotherly bickering of the two knights... This was a fun fantasy read." - Manhattan Book Review

"Absolutely loved this book! Thoroughly enjoyed the eloquent writing, the larger than life characters, the setting, the adventures! Reminds me very much of R.A. Salvatore's writings." - Goodreads Review

"Road of the Lost is a typical fantasy story, and will be enjoyed by fans of that genre. I found it to be a good read; often staying up later than intended to finish a chapter, and then another." - Goodreads Review
