A masterpiece to behold for all walks of fantasy enthusiasts!



Kill. Die young. That’s what a swordsman bonded to the ancient gods does. But Kaell––trained to survive a centuries-old, malignant war against the inhuman followers of an invincible lord––wants more. More of his trainer, Val Arques’ attention, his approval. Just more. But Val Arques is a bladesman of formidable power, entrusted not only with Kaell’s life but with the truth that will destroy him. Banished to a grim outpost of this doomed kingdom of sorcery, poetry, and treachery, he cannot afford to care about the young warrior. For love means loss. And Val Arques harbors a shameful secret ... As a vengeful god escapes his ancient prison and Kaell is drawn into his web of deception, even Val Arques can’t protect him from the dark prophecy awaiting him. The first, in hopefully what will become a long-running epic fantasy, The 19th Blademan by S.J. Hartland will enthrall fans of the Game of Thrones series and without question merits the attention of all who love the genre. Hartland has imagined a fantastical new realm––a masterpiece to behold for all walks of fantasy enthusiasts.
