A NEW FANTASY ADVENTURE EBOOK FROM TWIGBOAT PRESS
Sir Corbin, the retired Hero of Jerkum Pass, rides on one last adventure with the aid of a magic ring. The knight’s quest takes him to the capital of the Iron Empire. The city is in an uproar. The emperor has been slain by rogue mages. The new empress is livid. Soon all mages are suspect . . . including Corbin’s daughter.
Corbin attempts to find allies among his old regiment. The army has become a slithering nest of vipers as imperial mages and cavalrymen move warily around each other. Both sides snare Corbin in tight coils of suspicion, politics, and lies. The hero is caught between a steamy tryst with a jilted mage ex-lover and the tight-lipped scheme of an ex-buddy in the cavalry. When the vengeful empress launches a vendetta against all mage kind, Corbin must decide whether to save his family or preserve the empire.
Only his towering reputation holds the looming conflict at bay. Unfortunately, Sir Corbin is neither the man nor the hero he pretends to be. Unravel The Knight’s Secret, the first fantasy romance of The Mage Conspiracy series. Join the adventure of self discovery, lurid entanglements, and political intrigue where lies cut deeper than any sword.
