Fantasy, Christian Fantasy

A prince marked for death, a princess without a kingdom, and a world at war.

Unlikely travelers band together to accomplish the impossible—bring peace to their kingdom. But traitorous forces are at work, and a treacherous hand is destroying everything they accomplish.
Honor and soul-searching bring the travelers to hidden truth, and when a sacrifice is made, the broken-hearted band of misfits must cleanse the evil from their midst to free their world...or lose everything.

Read an excerpt:
[Kai, charged with protecting the high king of Faeraven and his daughter during an attack on Torindan, the high hold, decoys two assassins astride welkes, vicious raptor birds. Kai is riding Flecht, a winged horse.] 
The welkes hovered abreast. The first assassin showed gapped teeth in a malevolent grin. "Want to fight, do you? Well then, Kindren, let’s see what you’re made of." The two circled him.

"What’s that smell?" The first asked.

The second, smaller in stature, made an exaggerated sniffing sound. "Stinks like fear to me."

“You’re not so brave.” The gap-toothed smile mocked him again.

Ignoring the obvious ploy to break his concentration, Kai gritted his teeth and ran at the smaller of the two. The rider met his blow with stunning force. Kai fell back. The first rider set upon him at once. Kai shifted, but the blow caught his chest, the sword tip penetrating his surcoat and chain mail. Warmth ran down his side.

Shrilling, Flecht carried him backward.

The assassins took turns punishing Kai, allowing him no rest.

Flecht’s sides heaved but bore Kai without balking. Kai faced his tormentors, panting like an old man. Neither he nor his wingabeast could go on like this. If the assassins took his life they might spare Flecht.

Kai bowed his head and waited for the end to come.
