The Heir of Jeragoth

By Elaine Young All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy

Blurb

It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. As a Novadi Warrior, Iliard Candril spends his life fighting the forces of evil, most especially the minions of the demon god, Arnitath. Today he has just gotten the most difficult assignment of his life—become the guardian of his brother’s newborn illegitimate daughter. His protests fall on deaf ears and he finds himself oath bound to protect the tiny girl. Contrary to his fears, Iliard’s life as Alana’s guardian is filled with deadly challenges. An ancient prophecy drives enemies toward her at every turn. Even the gods seem to have some stake in her future—or lack thereof. The older Alana gets, the harder it becomes to protect her. The Heir of Jeragoth is the first novel in the series The Legend of Tan Medrak. It follows the early years of Alana Candril, a child destined for greatness—unless the forces aligned against her win the day.

Prologue

’Ware the wielder of the blue forged blade.

The Heir comes with fire and the sword

To bring destruction to all that our God holds holy.

Terin Berinath will gather the chosen

And call to war the unbelievers.

The child born when three moons are two,

Who can but with the eye be seen,

Who walks in the realm of shadows,

Is the one who will tear down all that the faithful have built.

The Priest of Arnitath focused on the symbol drawn on the bottom of the prophecy scroll—a harp with a quill and a key crossed behind it—and committed it to memory. The mark of Terin Berinath, the Heir of Jeragoth. He rolled up the scroll and bowed deeply to his superior. “Excellency, I am prepared for my task. My will is Arnitath’s.”

“As it should be,” Warder Meterius replied. “There is no will but his.” He raised his right hand, palm outward, toward the Priest. “Receive your guardian and go forward to begin your task. Prepare yourself well, for they will send Novadi to stop you.”

“I will Excellency.”

William Po: Enjoyed the characters and story of the USAF during WWII. Author seems knowledgeable about planes and situations faced by bomber personnel. Also the suffering the air war caused on both sides to civilians.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang".
