Editorial Reviews


Action, Adventure, and Dragon Slaying with a cast of Warriors, Wizards, Dwarves, Elves and a Dark Elf.
Here's what readers are saying about Sword and Sorcery, Epic Fantasy - 'Deathsworn Arc: The Last Dragon Slayer' :-
"Well written with imaginative use of standard characters, elves that are more than your standard pretty girl or tiny warrior, dwarf without attitude and with intelligence, heroes with flaws and not every ending is a happy one or every encounter works out for the best. And a dragon that is both morally superior and evil at the same time, reflecting a measure of humanity and the moral ambiguities we face. One has to wonder about the mindset the author comes from." - 
Ron Kell "RB"
"Martyn blends characterisation with location and the bigger, broader questions of life in a blend that keeps the reader interested from the beginning. He also delivers some wonderfully unexpected `punches' at just the right intervals to make them read to the end." - Linda Parkinson-Hardman
"The cast of characters are wonderful. They mesh together in an unique way. Barbarian, Elf, Dark Elf, Dwarf, and Humans. The interaction between barbarian and elf is great." - Hippy Lettuce
"I've never really been into fantasy reading - with Harry Potter and the likes. I think I've just been converted! " - Cathy Wilson
" If this is your first fantasy, you will be hooked. It was an excellent book and I am looking forward to the next installment. A very good read!" - Mary Romero "MaryR"

"was actually surprised by the depth of this book. It is more than just a plain adventure story, it is quite obvious that the author has great knowledge of people- as evident as the interplay and drama between the characters during the story." - Jack Gianni

From the Author

Why write an epic fantasy adventure series about dragons and dragon slaying?

When I started writing Deathsworn Arc 1 : The Last Dragon Slayer I didn't really know where I was going with it.  I had a rough plan in mind, 'they're on a mission to slay a dragon' but that was more or less it.  As I got into the story though I felt like I was getting to know the characters better myself.  Originally I'd expected Votrex to play a bigger part in the plot.  As it happens he doesn't really play that big a part in this book, but he has a major part to play in the overreaching arc.
 As I wrote the book I found ideas flowing faster than I could write them.  As of 21st February 2013 I was writing part 2, 'The Temple of the Mad God' and was 40,000 words in, but felt like I'd only just started.  2 for this reason was going to be a lot longer than I wanted - hence the split.  I have part 3 planned out in a little notebook and started.] Part 2 was getting so long I decided I had to split it into more books.  When I got to a point where it was longer than part 1 and felt 'complete' I was still nowhere near getting the companions to 'The Temple of the Mad God' so I decided I had to push that title into being book 3, and make book 2 into something else.  Hence, book 2 of the epic fantasy adventure series 'Deathsworn' is now known as 'Deathsworn Arc 2 : The Verkreath Horror'What is 'The Verkreath Horror'?  It's a new antagonist, that the companions run into in book 2, viler and more sinister than Thrax or the 'Servant of the Flame' book 2 is a darker book than 1, and has some scenes which might make uncomfortable reading for the squeamish.  Please bear with me though - the hardships the companions face in book 2, binds them together as a group, Vashni starts to let down her defences a little... And 'the truth' becomes more apparent.  If you liked part 1 I'm sure you'll love part 2. 
How many stories are there in the Deathsworn Arc?  I don't know, How many books should there be in an epic fantasy adventure series?  I have a figure in my head of 13, and a title for the finale, but I don't know between now and then.  Will all the characters survive until the conclusion?  Maybe, I don't know.  I don't think so.  In fairness I did have titles for books 1 - 3 of this epic fantasy series, but after splitting book 2 I now have titles for 1 - 4 and the finale! 
Will all the Deathsworn Arc be about dragons and dragon slaying?No, it will always have dragons in the background, but I want to explore 'the truth' more comprehensively, I want to take them somehow to Durth Orza, Eldenizar and some of the other places on the map.  The atheist, almost anti-theist sub-themes will become stronger as the series progresses too.  The same is true of the exploration of pragmatic moralism.

Martyn Stanley is the author of 'The Deathsworn Arc' a epic fantasy adventures series dragons. He lives in a little village in England, with his long-suffering wife and two small children.

Martyn has always enjoyed epic fantasy novels and began reading them at a young age, starting with 'The Hobbit', ending with 'The Inheritance Cycle' and including everything in between.

His 'Deathsworn Arc' is more than a hack and slash, swords and sorcery series. It examines, faith, companionship, morality, pragmatism and more. If the characters of 'The Deathsworn Arc' come across as strange, it's partly because they're intended to. It isn't a series which will be dragged out indefinitely, it has a beginning, a middle and a definite end.

He already has the plot for his second series forming in his head.

To write is to create characters and to have freedom for them to succeed or fail and to travel wherever you want them to, and meet whoever you want them to meet.

He sincerely hopes you enjoy reading his epic fantasy adventure series 'The Deathsworn Arc' as much as he enjoyed writing it.
