Book Description


The Juggernaut has smashed its way across the Plains of Alencia to the very walls of Jalan’s Drift. But even as Darius rallies the forces of the Southlands to oppose it, questions begin to arise as a darker and more sinister purpose begins to make itself known. Mraxdavar the Great, Eldest of Dragons, heeds the call to render aid, but are dragons coming to the succor of their deadliest foes, mankind, simply at the behest of one human wizard? Duke Argus barters for the aid of the murderous priests of a renegade god, but are the blackest and most powerful summonings of their deity to be handed to a mortal lord merely for his personal advancement? And did the demonic scepter, the Ohric, actually exert all this time and power merely to enable a barbarian horde to break a single city, even one as large and rich as Jalan’s Drift?

In this second novel of the Paladin Trilogy, Darius struggles to understand the significance of these questions, while the unlikely team of the thief Adella and Shannon, Darius’ teen-aged Daughter, is diverted to an isolated castle where the Tyrant Regnar holds the power that has enslaved the states of the Plains of Alencia.


Three Novels of Heroism

Juggernaut, a weapon of the ancient wars, bursts forth from a shattered vault deep beneath the mountains to smash its way through the walls of castles and cities alike, clearing the path for the conquest of the barbarian horde of Alacon Regnar. In answer comes a single warrior, Darius Inglorion, riding a great stallion, wearing antiquated armor, and armed with a living sword, Sarinian the Avenger to rally the divided principalities which lie paralyzed before this terrible armada. Darius is a Paladin, a holy warrior, who overcomes treachery and accusations of heresy to stir the hearts of men and lead them to fight the invaders to a bloody standstill. But it is then that the true purpose for the release of the Juggernaut explodes upon all involved, and Paladin and monstrosity alike are revealed as naught but pawns in a far greater Game, a Game for dominion of all the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating September 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book 2: Upon this World of Stone. What can I say. The first book was exciting, I was startled by the abrupt ending of Book 1, (Can't see it coming on a kindle, a real paperback you can at least see the pages dwindling.) Book two... I started it on a Thursday evening and had it finished by Sunday night... (Actually Monday morning). I'm not saying it's a short book or a simple read, I'm saying I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. My apologies to my family, and my body for the lack of sleep. The book just hooked me in, that much. Find and read my review of Book One: A Rage in the Heavens. Again I definitely recommend the trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps going and developing October 1, 2012

OK, I got totally pulled in to this one. I feel for the characters (even the non-heroes) and their personalities are developing nicely -- and in surprising ways. Hillebrecht has done a nice job evolving the story & giving the characters great depth. Like the first book, attention to detail really breathes believability into the work. Can't wait to see where the next one takes us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent September 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Once again the author of The Paladin Trilogy has delivered. This sequel to A Rage in the Heavens sees the main characters begin to grow, and moreover, the growth is convincing and genuine. The pacing is great, and new characters a plots are introduced with a skillful touch. Can't recommend this series enough to fans of fantasy literature.
