Wizard – Warrior – Prophet – King
Long ago the gods chose a great hero, Daemron the Slayer, to act as their agent in the mortal world to stand against the demonic spawn of Chaos. The gods gifted their champion with three magical Talismans: a sword, a ring, and a crown. But the awesome power of the Talismans corrupted Daemron, turning him from savior to destroyer. Filled with pride, he dared to challenge the gods themselves. Siding with the Chaos spawn, Daemron waged a titanic battle against the Immortals. In the end, Daemron was defeated, the Talismans were lost, and Chaos was sealed off behind the Legacy—a magical barrier the gods sacrificed themselves to create.
Now the Legacy is fading. On the other side, the banished Daemron stirs. And across the scattered corners of the land, four children are born of suffering and strife, each touched by one aspect of Daemron himself—wizard, warrior, prophet, king.
Bound by a connection deeper than blood, the Children of Fire will either restore the Legacy or bring it crashing down, freeing Daemron to wreak his vengeance upon the mortal world.

The Chaos Born trilogy is my tribute to the classic Sword & Sorcery fantasy books I read growing up. It’s an epic quest in the style of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Terry Brooks’ Sword of Shanarra or David Eddings’ Belgariad, with a dash of dark horror inspired by Stephen King and Clive Barker.
The first book, Children of Fire, focuses on four mortals touched by a spell cast by Daemron the Slayer, a long banished dark god. Imbued with the immortal essence of Chaos, the Children of Fire – Keegan, Scythe, Cassandra and Vaaler, each represent one aspect of the Slayer: wizard; warrior; prophet; king. Driven by forces beyond their control, their lives are cursed with suffering and strife, none aware that others like them exist. But their fates are intertwined, and each is inexorably drawn into a quest to find three powerful Talismans lost when Daemron was banished by the Old Gods centuries ago. But will the Children of Fire be the salvation of the mortal world, or the heralds of the Slayer’s return? Sample the first 50 pages! On sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
The second book, The Scorched Earth, picks up where the first book ends, with various factions struggling to control and/or destroy the Children of Fire. Battling the fanatically religious monks of the Order, the Minions of the exiled Slayer and even each other, their actions inevitably draw the kingdoms of the mortal world into a devastating war. Sample the first 50 pages! On sale at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Torn apart by the horrors they have witnessed – and caused – the Children of Fire are more vulnerable than ever. The fanatical armies of the Order march across the land, trying to preserve the Legacy with a bloody Purge of any who have the ability to call upon the power of Chaos. And behind the Legacy lurks Daemron the Slayer and his armies of Chaos Spawn, eagerly waiting for their chance to be unleashed upon the mortal world.
