In darkness, a priceless weapon waits for a hero…and evil stirs.
Fifty years ago, a legendary hero used the kingdom’s holiest relic — the longsword Sight-Bringer — to kill the terrifying Blood Queen Serina Greywynne and end her rebellion. Yet in the cataclysm that followed, Sight-Bringer was destroyed, and a noble family, blamed for its loss, fell into disfavor.
Owen Toscovar is a young man seeking the freedom to see the world, but when he defends a loved one, he is unjustly sentenced to serve as a man-at-arms to dying Duke Dain. Danika, the duke’s headstrong daughter, seeks to ensure her younger brother inherits her father’s title, but for the family that lost Sight-Bringer, the line of succession is now far from certain.
When a deathbed confession reveals a shocking secret, Owen is sent to accompany Danika and her brother to the ruins of an ancient fortress long whispered to be haunted by the vengeful ghost of the Blood Queen herself. But more than ghosts stir beneath the ruins, and Owen must find the courage to stand fast and protect the Dain bloodline against an unholy evil, because if he fails, the kingdom will once again be plunged into warfare.
Blood Fiends’ Bane is the first book in the Vampire Queen Saga, a mature fantasy tale of sword-swinging-action, blood-curdling horror, and selfless duty in the face of unspeakable evil. Author William Stacey is a 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-Finalist.
