A new dark-fantasy trilogy with a contemporary twist . . .
After being abandoned in a park at the age of seven, Londoner Jared Bruin doesn’t know who he is, only that he is obsessed with swordplay and all things medieval. An inexplicable affliction makes him an autodidact who can master any talent — particularly ones that involve archaic weapons — but its violent dark side, along with a repressed childhood, creates an alcoholic, suicidal outcast. Things look brighter when an American woman hires him as a sword master, but as their fierce love affair pushes sexual boundaries, her secrets break free and ignite parts of Jared’s past. Soon neither one can ignore the link between them, and as Jared searches harder for answers, he forces open a world he was never meant to find. A world with a conflicting prophecy that will make him either a hero or destroyer.
