"PATH OF GLORY is epic fantasy in the tradition of THE LORD OF THE RINGS"
In the land of Madryn, the four races are forced to work
together to defeat the evil darklord Lorthas. The elves,
the humans and the Garan'ah fought courageously at the
final battle when the mages erected the Barrier to contain
Lorthas. The barrier is a magical mountain range with only
one entrance, a portal guarded by a garrison of troops.
A millennium later, the segregated races keep totally to
themselves with the worst criminals sent into the Barrier.
Jeran, a young boy who lives on a farm near the Boundary,
befriends a runaway slave Darth. The twosome share many
happy adventures together before two outlaws thought to be
in the barrier attack their farm. Jeran's uncle gives him
a message to take to the king telling him the barrier is
weakening and the two boys do his bidding. They meet
allies along the way who help them get in to see the king
but even after their message is delivered, Jeran and
Darth's adventures are only beginning.
PATH OF GLORY is epic fantasy in the tradition of THE LORD
OF THE RINGS and the SHANNARA series. The protagonists are
two young people who must learn about their different
heritage if they hope to use it in the upcoming war. No
one will be in a funk after reading this novel except
having to wait for Brett M. Funk's next "Boundary's Fall"
novel SWORD OF HONOR expected in bookstores in late fall.
