Garrick Tremaine was living a happy life as a soldier in Lord Malach’s army, when the Duke of Twin Falls visits him in a dream and tells him he can find his destiny in Twin Falls.
When he arrives,though, Garrick discovers the duke has died and there is a contest to succeed him. Anyone can enter, but to win requires answering a nearly incomprehensible riddle. Pushed to enter the contest by his new friend, the odd sorcerer, Liliana Gray, Garrick finds himself at odds with eight other contestants in a savage game with more at stake than he realizes.
The book is a sequel to my 2013 fantasy, The Sword and the Sorcerer, but you don’t have to have read SatS to understand what happens in A Contest of Succession. (Of course, if you want to read the first book, and you haven’t, The Sword and the Sorcerer is free for Kindle through Wednesday, July 1. Get it here.)
A Contest of Succession is an epic fantasy. Click here to get it for $2.99 for Kindle. A print edition will be available in July.
