Captain Corin thought his mission had come to a highly profitable end. But King Oberon made sure his quest was just beginning After an arduous search, the clever, charming Corin finds the ancient ruins of Jezeeli. But his angry crew mutinies when, rather than the promised treasure, their discovery yields only books. Left to a fiery death, Corin is mysteriously whisked off to a time when Jezeeli teems with fairies, dwarves, and druids. The city, however, is not what it seems. Jezeeli lives in King Oberon s dream, and only he has the power to send Corin back to his own time. For his wish to be granted, Corin must first stop a usurper s plot. Oberon s powerful enemy is the traitor Ephitel, known in Corin s time as a tyrannical god. With magical druids, a disgraced soldier, a gentleman thief, and a banished courtier as his only allies, can Corin change the course of Oberon s dream - and history itself?"
Book One of The Godlanders War trilogy. Previously published as Oberon's Dreams. Even for a charismatic pirate, three years is a long time to chase after an unimaginable treasure hidden in the ruins of an ancient city. But when the fabled riches turn out to be virtually worthless, the outraged crew mutinies and leaves their former captain for dead. He is rescued by a mysterious king and transported back to a time of dwarves, druids, and fairies. Enchanting as it is, though, his only wish is to return home and find justice—but only the king has the power to return him…for a price. Aided by a new and motley group of mystical creatures and misfits, he sets out on his quest, ultimately getting caught up in a war he wants nothing to do with—and in the process changing the course of history itself. The Dreams of a Dying God is an action-packed, richly imagined adventure fantasy from the author of The Dragonprince trilogy.
In this unsettled world, the death of the ruler of the desert princedom becomes the catalyst for power games of magical treachery as rival factions - from the evil High Prince to the leader of the Sunrunners to the newly crowned Prince of the Desert - seek to alter the course of their world.
Daven Carrickson grew up as a beggar in the filthy alleys beneath the shadows of the palace. He's the son of a known thief, disgraced and despised. His only real talent is his ability with a sword, and his only real chance at finding honor or a home is a desperate dream of joining the King's Guard. Then Daven receives a new future when Master Claighan invites him to study magic at the Academy. The wizard offers to make him into a new kind of soldier: a swordsman equally skilled with forged blades and mystic forces. It only helps that Daven has no home, no family, and nothing left to lose. But when conspiring forces destroy the wizard's plans, Daven finds himself wanted for treason and murder. Hunted by a great black beast of a dragon, caught between the King's Guard and a rebel force led by a rogue wizard, Daven's only hope of surviving is to become more than he's ever dreamed possible.
The final chapter in the Godlanders War. Corin Hugh, once left to die in the tomb of a dead god, now carries with him the burning memory of King Oberon's betrayal at the hands of the tyrant god Ephitel. But he also carries a secret weapon—Godslayer, the one sword in all Hurope that can bring Ephitel to his knees. However, he will need more than just a magic sword to draw Ephitel down from his throne. As Corin searches for allies in what may become his last, desperate stand against the gods, his quest takes him deep into the heart of two ancient orders: a reclusive race of druids and the long-lost elves of old Gesoelig. Ultimately, Corin must swallow his pride and look to his fellow humans for help as he plots his revenge against Ephitel. All his plans may crumble to ashes, however, if Justicar Jessamine, Ephitel's ruthless but beautiful champion, has her way... In this third epic volume of The Godlanders War, men, gods, mortals, and immortals alike join forces in a furious race against time and a desperate battle for survival.
The Kingdom of the Sarianne teeters on the brink. While its tyrant king plays out his petty vendettas, rebellion foments on the edges of his domain. Politics and power struggles gamble civilization on the tides of war. Yet war is not the greatest threat to civilization. A far older enemy rises. The dragons are waking and these fiends of Chaos will swarm across the world of men, razing it to bedrock just as they have done in ages past. But this time the world of men has a champion in Daven Carrickson. Once a beggar and still a fugitive from the king's justice, Daven is also a hero with unrivaled powers. A brush with one of the deadly dragons left him forever bonded to the beast and able to tap into the ever-shifting maelstrom of Chaos that roils beneath man's fragile reality. It is a dangerous connection, one that threatens to consume him. Can he pay even that ultimate price if it means the salvation of humanity? The Dragonswarm is the second book in the Dragonprince Trilogy. Approximately 110,000 words.

He soon sees the perfect opportunity to right the wrong that he suffered and save an innocent victim. The focus of his wrath is Ethan Blake, the sly traitor who incited Corin's men to betray him. But Corin must move fast because Blake has resumed his former position among the mighty—and seemingly invincible—tyrant Vestossis. Aiding Corin in his quest is the lovely and mysterious druid Aemilia, who somehow seems to know Corin's very soul. Together, the two unlikely heroes must join forces and, ultimately, learn to trust one another as they struggle against earthly tyranny, capricious gods, and time itself in an epic battle for freedom and good.
