The Emperor of Mu is the most powerful man in the six realms, and yet finds himself defenceless against a hidden foe; one that has manipulated from behind the scenes for centuries. Doomed to die, he prepares to meet his fate.
It begins on the eve of civil war with Emperor Constantine summoning his closest confidant Salvarre to a private meeting. Sworn to secrecy, he instructs Salvarre to dispatch a letter to the Sorceress of the Powers, but the news arrives too late. Constantine is murdered, and Mu is thrown into turmoil as the rulers of the six realms decide who is to become the next emperor.
While Mu elects a successor, the outland races stir. The hunt for those with forbidden dark elf blood threatens another Elvic War. To the north, rumours spread of dragons returning after a three hundred cycle absence. In the desert lands, the fearless Imanishi defend the empire from the night demons, while South of Mu, the sea invaders consolidate their rule.
This is a story of rivalry, romances, and battles between race and kind alike that keeps you guessing with its twists and turns. Set in the medieval world of Mu, where the powers of the mind and mysticism set apart the extraordinary, this new series redefines what it means to be human.

My creative journey began while living in London designing a fantasy board game, titled the Middle Kingdom of Mu. In quiet moments, often travelling overseas on business, I had fun writing the lore and exploring different realms. Why a board game? Back then, I thought digital games would deprive our two sons of social interaction and limit their development. How the world has changed since.
During my business career, I never thought about creative writing, let alone whether I had the aptitude nor the spare time. On holiday travelling to Bali, I discovered through my new Kindle, all these emerging novelists writing great fantasy and Sci-Fi, and was encouraged to have a crack.
So, after years of playing the corporate warrior, I have finally found time to explore my creative side and give chase to wondrous ideas and storytelling that I never knew existed. I trust you enjoy my first epic fantasy series.
