"...gives readers the opportunity to immerse themselves with its impressive world building and get to know the lead character, terra-dracon demonhunter Karian 'Kari' Vanador. A strong female lead is always anattractive aspect in any genre. The fact that she has a dragon-like appearance makes her more appealing as a protagonist. Her inner war of loneliness and her sense of duty are flaws that make her persona much more relatable. ... I like a complex yet comprehensible plot, and Salvation's Dawn nails it." --Reader's Favorite
"Salvation's Dawn is an epic fantasy with a strong female lead that's - and this is something new for me - not a human. While, of course, I've read plenty of books about vamps, faeries, goddesses, aliens and such, I don't think I can remember a character as epic as Karian. Her description alone was a promise of a big adventure full of magic and sharp swords and sorcery." --Alexandra Engellmann, author of Sky Ghosts: All For One
"The traveling and world building reminded me of Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K LeGuin. While Kari is a warrior, she is not simply a female body planted over a male warrior personality. She is a believable,feminine, yet hard when she needs to be character...that has more depth than a lot of people I have met." -- Cori Dyson, author of the "All Things Character it is" blog
From the Author
is the opening volume of the Eve of Redemption series. This epic fantasy novel will introduce you to our heroine, Karian Vanador, and the world into which she has been unexpectedly resurrected - an unprecedented event in Citaria's history. Salvation's Dawn will give you a feel for the world and its people, and especially the characters that make up the Silver Blades, the adventuring group around which the storylines of the Eve of Redemption series take place. Filled with rich descriptions and deep character development, I did my best to make these people and places you, the reader, will care about, so that as the more pressing and urgent matters of the following volumes in the series take place, you'll feel the stakes nearly as keenly as the characters themselves.
I've tried to emulate several of my favorite epic fantasy authors, and hope you enjoy my own foray into the realm of epic fantasy. Thanks for your interest!
