None but the rightful king can wield the sword...


Unaware that heís the missing heir to Netherís throne, half-breed outcast Dain fits in nowhere, and ends up at Thirst Hold on the very edge of the Dark Forest. Taken in by its kindly master, Dain must contend with a spoiled, arrogant nemesis Ė Prince Gavril, who both hates him for being pagan yet seeks to use Dainís special powers in his quest to find the missing Chalice of Eternal Life. While in Nether, a girl named Alexeika sees Dain in a vision, and loses her heart to this handsome boy who may be real Ö or only a myth.

*Author's Note: The opening novel of the trilogy, The Sword, The Ring, and The Chalice, which has since become a continuing series of stand-alone novels alternating between the two kingdoms of Mandria and Nether.
