Author: Dave Reed
Genre: NA Epic Fantasy Thriller
Release Date: October 1, 2021
Under the banner of truce during the holy Spring Festa, four Chosen priests of the war god brutalized me, cut my throat, and dumped my naked corpse in a mass grave.
They plan to do the same to my entire clan.
The priests of the Hierarchy believed that was the end of me.
But Death loves me. And he’s giving me a second shot.
There’s a price I’ll need to pay, of course. Later. I have a plan for that, too.
First, I have unfinished business with my murderers. I need to save my family and protect my clan. And I burn for revenge. I’ll kill the four that took my life and threatened those I love.
They won’t die easy.

Dave Reed is an award-winning dark (like REALLY dark) epic fantasy writer, romantic, software engineer, super-nerd, and Story Grid Certified Editor. He is a proud husband to his warrior-queen Samia and father of three adult gremlins.
Dave lives in the vicinity of Seattle, Washington, where he engineers software for Amazon, bleeds on the krav maga training mat, pretends to shoot competitively, and scribbles novels to keep his sanity.
Dave loves acknowledging, appreciating, studying, and enjoying the darkest elements we see and experience all around and inside us. It would be remiss to go through life ignoring our deepest midnight instincts. What is life if we aren’t experiencing darkness to contrast with light? What is beauty without scars to prove it existed?
He is a multimedia storyteller with his deepest roots in written fiction. Dave’s characters are morally gray, assertive anti-heroines (plus the occasional anti-hero) who point to the grimmest, darkest desires we all struggle with. His books contain more swords, sorcery, and sex than the law allows.
Nope, Dave doesn’t write about the heroes you want. He creates the monsters you need.
Read. Enjoy. Review.
