The Sword and the Circlet: Leaving Home
by Emmitt Hugh
The king of Thesilia has been poisoned and his brother has usurped the throne. The king's half-elf advisor, the Schill, has denied the usurper the two things he desires most. The crown has been sent south to the elves of Fridia and the Schill's own apprentice carries away the king's sword, unaware of its draconic history. Behind him are ruthless bounty hunters performing the will of the corrupt usurper. The Ouros, who claim to be descended from dragons, are on the trail. They wish the crown for their own reasons. Their army has come to beseige and occupy the wealthy Theliant, Thesilia's great city and stronghold. Allied with the goblins and trolls, they will tear through the heart of Fridia to claim what they see as rightfully theirs. But the elves are not to be caught unaware; with their ears to the wind, they hear the words of the world and anticipate the attack. Elsewhere, the exiled queen, accompanied by the Schill who has become her mentor and advisor, seeks the help and wisdom of the elusive Diyani. The struggles are just beginning in this epic fantasy.
Written in the traditional epic style of past masters, The Sword and the Circlet features strong characters, vibrant dialogue, exciting action, and brisk pacing. Populated with men, elves, goblins, giants, trolls, and yes, dragons, the story is a must read for fans of traditional fantasy. So delve into a story with fierce battles, betrayals and vengeance, daring escapes, nobles heroes, songs and poems, and high adventure: delve into The Sword and the Circlet.
