Road of the Lost

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


Honor, duty, and family mean everything, but he'll risk it all to prove his worth.

For Reslo, the elven guardian of the forest road, upholding his father's oath means serving a usurping, foreign king and spending his life as an outsider. He wants nothing more than to do his duty and be home in time for dinner, but he instead finds himself embroiled in a battle against old enemies. To make things worse, two young, bungling knights are on a quest to find their lost champion and he must keep them alive or end up starting a war. Reslo must risk his life and put all he loves at risk to fulfill his father's oath and save his forest homeland for the very people who shun him.

Fans of epic fantasy, tabletop gaming, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, and Warhammer will love this action-packed, fast-paced adventure set in a sprawling, multi-faceted world with a deep, rich history boiling over with gritty, bloody combat.

"Road of the Lost is a thrilling fantasy adventure with action and humor..." - San Francisco Book Review.

"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
