The Kingmaster

THE HERO OF ELLUNON.
Kyen is a swordsman with a heavy name on his shoulders. Shy and destitute, he’s about to lose the only thing he has left—his best friend.
When Finn is attacked and stricken, Kyen pledges his sword to save him. But blades are useless against the Kingmaster, a sinister strategist armed with a dark relic. Kyen must hunt for the last living summoner in Ellunon, the only hope to stop the Kingmaster and heal Finn.
Fending off dragons, wrangling a princess (and her unwanted suitor), and surviving the wilds of Ellunon are the least of Kyen’s problems. Every summoner he finds is lost, dead, or powerless. The Kingmaster’s grip is spreading. Finn’s time is running out. When Kyen suddenly finds himself the center of the Kingmaster’s designs, he realizes too late. The stakes are higher than he ever imagined…
