By five may your journey thrive. By five may you return alive.

The idyllic kingdom of Parisia sat nestled securely in the Great Emerald Mountains. For generations Parisia had known nothing but peace and prosperity. When the elder dragon Darka Mors, steals the Darkstone, the entire realm is threatened. Without the Darkstone, the magic sealing away the Shadow King would fail. His return would bring death and destruction to the world of men.

Desperate, the king of Parisia calls on an unlikely hero, the Disgraced Knight Vale Lox to lead a group of Seekers on the most important quest in a thousand years. To save the realm and everyone they have ever known from the rising shadows of darkness, these misfits must survive hostile lands, enemy armies, unspeakable monsters, and each other in order to retrieve the stone from the dragon’s lair before it’s too late.

Dungeons & Dragons meets the Witcher in this stand-alone tale filled with non-stop action and banter. If you love classic fantasy quests with a modern twist, don't miss this epic adventure.


I received Shadow of the Dark Realm in return for an honest review from the author. 

I loved Vale as a character but there are so many amazing characters that have been added to the story it's really hard to pick my favorite. If I had to choose I think it's a toss up between Vale or Azalea as I felt like I was really able to connect with them both. However, along the way we meet a rag tag group of characters and some of them pulled at my heart strings along the way and will forever has a place in my heart. 

I'm not a huge epic fantasy reader but I do enjoy them here and there so when the opportunity came up I just knew I needed to read Shadows of the Dark Realm. I mean look at the cover!!! If that doesn't make you curious than I don't know what will. I was hooked before I ever read the synopsis and just knew this one was a must for me and I'm so glad that I did because I loved every moment of it. 

This is my first book by the author and I'm obsessed with his writing style. Shadows of the Dark Realm is a epic whirlwind fantasy adventure that captured my heart and sparked my imagination. The characters are easy to connect with very engaging you can't help loving them all. I felt like I was reading a DnD adventure which I love immensely as a player it sang to my soul.

 Highly recommend if you enjoy epic fantasy this a must the author blew my expectations out of the water. I devoured Shadows of the Dark Realm in just a couple quick reading sessions it was hard to put down because I had to know what was going to happen to our hero's. I just loved everything about it the characters are fantastic and the story is unique I couldn't put it down.
