The world has suffered a magic apocalypse. We pushed the technological progress too far, and now magic has returned with a vengeance. It comes in waves, without warning, and vanishes as suddenly as it appears. When magic is up, planes drop out of the sky, cars stall, and electricity dies. When magic is down, guns work and spells fail.
It’s a volatile, screwed-up world. Magic feeds on technology, gnawing down on skyscrapers until most of them topple and fall, leaving only skeletal husks behind. Monsters prowl the ruined streets, werebears and werehyenas stalk their prey; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.
In this new age, ancient beings awaken, brought out of their slumber by magic. One of them is Nimrood, the Builder of Towers, the man whose name terrified the ancient kingdoms of the Persian Gulf thousands of years ago. Possessing unimaginable power, Nimrood takes a new name, Roland, and sets about bringing his vision of the future. To build a new kingdom, one must first destroy the old. Roland requires a Warlord, a leader who will forge and lead his army, someone of great power and even greater cruelty, someone whose loyalty Roland will ensure by searing every shred of doubt with his own blood and ancient magic.
When shaping a human into a weapon, it’s best to start young. But when you raise an attack dog and, after you no longer need him, toss him out onto the street like garbage, don’t be surprised if he bites the hand that once fed him.
Technically the books in the Iron Covenant trilogy are spin offs from our Kate Daniels series; however, each of them can be read as a standalone work.
For Kate Daniels fans: although this story is the first in the Iron Covenant trilogy, and the entire trilogy takes place before the events of Magic Triumphs, it is actually written to be read in the following order:
You don’t need to wait for Hugh’s entire story to be out to continue with Magic Triumphs. If you do, it won’t be as fun, because there are some revelations in Iron Covenant 2 that are best discovered after Magic Triumphs.
Will some characters from KD world make an appearance in the Iron Covenant?
Will the books in this series be available in ebook, print, and audio?
Will these books be available in hardcover?
No. These books are self published and will be available in trade paperback format.
Can I order these books through me local indie store?
Are these books suitable for my child?
Only you can make that decision, but these books are firmly R rated. They contain sex, graphic violence, and adult themes. When in doubt, read them first.
