Summary Shadow of Kings: Steel and sorcery clash as the Harhn incursion sweeps through the Hugue. Mankind faces its greatest peril without the Order Knights of legend to defend them. Crusading deep in the frontier, the Order is unaware of the savage beasts threatening their homeland as the Hugue realms muster their armies for war. Between a cunning Harhn sorcerer, and an alliance forged with the decadent Darkfey, the horde threatens to extinguish the domains of men. Only Lord Baudouin and Lady Lucia, a Dragon Maiden from the Order, stand in the enemy's path. One must find the strength to unify the realms. The other must discover the strength within her, while coming to terms with the agendas of her Order. But only together will there be any hope to repel the onslaught, and preserve the future for a mysterious girl they do not know.
Fantasy author Bryan Lee Gregory is the author of Lord of the City. For more information, visit his website http://bryanleegregory.com/
Summary Lord of the City: Scribe Kenton lives in the last human refuge, known to its inhabitants only as the City. All he has ever known is the omnipresent threat of the Bladesmen, the eternal foes who trapped the few remaining humans over a century ago.
Now the City is running out of the only resource that can keep its enemies at bay. Kenton is sent out into the world with the City's most valiant defenders on a revolutionary aircraft on a desperate mission to find a weakness in the Bladesmen's defenses. Soon he discovers that it is only a matter of time until the City falls forever. Only the human mission on board the zeppelin Lord of the City can hope to find a way to save the last remnants of humanity before their time runs out.
