The Fallen Banner
Centuries ago, the Halryians came to Aerothos and began an age of ruthless conquest. One by one, the old kingdoms fell beneath the might of the Halryians and their god. And when peace finally returned to Aerothos, the land rejoiced. But the thirst for power can never be satisfied.
In a continent of grand and mighty kingdoms, powerful alliances and threatening empires, the Kingdom of Rhodrien lies at the center. Caim, Jeyk, and Leila Marcher grew up within the borders of their quiet realm, born and raised for the royal leadership that would one day be demanded of them – and never expecting a life with too many difficulties. But when the horns of war sound throughout Aerothos once again, the Marchers soon realize how cruel Aerothos truly is.

"Knights of the Wolf is one of the finest indie books for grounded fantasy." - Ricardo Victoria, author of 'Tempest Blades: The Withered King'
Fifteen years ago, the Kingdom of Orastus suffered defeat at the hands of the Union armies. For Sir Markard Greystone, it ended his pride and glory. Despondent and forlorn, the knight disappeared into obscurity, his honor and vows only a fading memory.
When the newly knighted Sir Ryan Stalgard comes bearing a proposal, Markard finds himself once again in the world of politics and treachery. The King of Tarys is surrounded by conspirators and traitors who seek to take his crown, and it is the promise of Euric Terathan, the ambitious ruler of Orastus, to rid the Tarysian court of the opposition and secure a strong alliance with his neighboring counterpart. Swords in-hand, Markard and Ryan venture forth with their liege to bring about a new age for the Kingdom of Orastus.
But the king’s blades learn that power always has a price.

"In this tale of Aerothos, Nugent masterfully finds the balance between character development and driving the plot at an appropriately rapid pace. This book would be great for readers looking for a sample of Aerothos who haven't touched The Fallen Banner or Knights of the Wolf. For returning readers, this story will add plenty of details to the setting that they will surely appreciate." - Amazon Customer
