Defiant Guardians: A Collection of Epic Fantasy Tales from Five Wizards of Fantasy

The Silent Blade - by Jacob Peppers

The Downs, the poor district of the city of Avarest, is home to cutthroats and thieves, pickpockets and prostitutes, all of whom pay tribute to one of two powerful crime bosses. It is also home to Aaron Envelar, a disillusioned sellsword known as the Silent Blade, who cares nothing for the criminal overlords or their schemes, who only wants to survive and make a little coin in the process.

But when a group of unwitting thugs steal his mother’s necklace, the only link he has to his murdered parents, Aaron decides that sometimes gold isn’t enough—sometimes, blood is the only payment worth taking. And whatever else will come, this time, he will not be silent. After all, when you take everything from a man, what else does he have to lose?

The Killings at Rockman's Ford - by D.W. Hawkins

A dangerous fugitive. A deadly secret. An unwelcome champion.

For generations, the seasons have turned with indifference to the sleepy hamlet of Rockman’s Ford. Residents and visitors alike would say it’s a delightful place where terrible things don’t happen—not murder, and never sorcery. Those things happen to other people in other places.

When a man is found murdered by hostile magic, the peaceful illusion is rocked by the emergence of dark secrets.
For D’Jenn Pike, a Warlock of the Conclave, hostile magic is an everyday occurrence. When he’s asked to help find the killer, his soul is tested by the chase. With bodies mounting, D’Jenn is all that stands between Rockman’s Ford and vengeful magic, but his courage could get him hanged alongside the murderer.

The guilty must pay, but the gods have no interest in justice.

The Renegade Apprentice - by Andy Peloquin

A fight to the death. The prize: freedom.

Evren hates the endless torments and cruelties of his life as an apprentice priest. When he finds the opportunity to flee, he seizes it in both fists.

But the streets of Vothmot hold their own share of dangers. He must battle street thugs, rival gangs, even his own trusted comrades to truly be free.

Dragon Born - by Aaron Hodges

For five long years, Enala has lived in exile. And for five years she has trained, mastering the arts of war and survival. Yet she remains trapped, forbidden to leave the boundaries of the forest. Smothered by her parents, she longs for adventure, for the chance to escape the stagnation of her life. Desperate, Enala turns to the only creatures that might help. The Gold Dragons…

Cambion - by Stevie Collier

A pastor for a mother.

A demon for a father.

The devil wanted a son, and, using his evil trickery, was able to obtain one while simultaneously spitting in God's face.
Follow the path of a teen once loved by everyone who is now hated.

What makes him so different isn't just the horns that sprout from his head, but the powers the devil has bestowed upon him.

Will he use them to slaughter the followers of God? Those who so easily turned their backs on him? Will he accept his heir to the dark throne?

Or, will he use his powers to fight his serpent of a father and all his minions?

The Whispers of Evernow by Heidi Catherine

Five kingdoms. Five senses. One secret that will change them all.

Manipulated by a vicious King, Jeremiah is stripped of his identity and forced into a life of silent submission as a Whisperer. Allowed only to speak at the command of the King, one thousand Whisperers must line up in rows and chant their sadistic ruler’s darkest desires. As each evil wish comes true, the King’s power over his impoverished kingdom grows.

When Jeremiah’s fears for the family he left behind are confirmed, he turns in desperation to the most unlikely person for help—the King’s eldest daughter. But is Princess Rose as kind as she is beautiful, or will she lure him into a trap?

To save those dearest to him, Jeremiah has no choice but to put his trust in Rose, whose own life is threatened as her father prepares to clear the path to the throne for his newborn son. Together, they embark on a bold plan to overthrow the King and set the Whisperers free.

As love blossoms in this most unlikely place, Jeremiah and Rose must discover how to use the power of the spoken word to conquer more than just the kingdom. They will need to conquer their hearts.
The City of Veils by S. Usher Evans

Two dead royals.
A slimy crime boss.
A city on the brink of chaos.

Thirteen-year-old Princess Brynna fled an arranged marriage and became a masked vigilante. Now, at eighteen, she's on the cusp of taking down the city's most ruthless crime boss, Lord Beswick—that is, until her father and brother are murdered, and she's dragged back to a life she thought she left behind.

Even as she juggles council meetings and royal decrees, Brynna refuses to give up on her vigilante mission to bring Beswick to justice. But the politics of Forcadel are as volatile as its streets, and Brynna isn't sure whom she can trust in the castle. And with two royals dead in less than a month, she must use all her wits to keep herself from becoming the third.

Blood and Bane by C. McKee

In a world, ruled by Dragons…

Galddor, Dragon Sage and liaison to the Sovereign Mountain Dragons, is training three apprentices to become Staves. Once trained, they will occupy all corners of the Realms to watch over and protect the land from magical abuse and desecration.

Though Galddor’s visions foretold the rise of a destructive foe from within the apprenticeship, he overcomes his concerns. The apprentice in question is a known descendant from a family of humans who were banished from the Realms many years ago by the Sovereign Dragons – and Galddor.

Now Galddor must push forward in the hopes the lessons he provides will overcome the apprentice’s natural, dark tendencies and instead become an honorable man. If Galddor is unable to meet this challenge, the past may come back to haunt him, affecting human-Dragon relations, and changing the face of the Realms forever…
