Heart Of The South

C. J. Watterson

The action packed sequel to “Of North Blood Drawn”, more witty banter, more lasers and explosions, more intrigue, battles in the mind, space slugs and provocative thoughts…

Seatus and Es’stus have been at war for over three hundred years. Inevitably, the Seatons – the Defenders – are losing. The High Marshal, commander of Seaton Defence has a solution. It’s a desperate one, that can only end in the annihilation of the Es’stons, or the Seatons, or both.

Magen has brought his squad and swordmen through their first battle. Left behind by the main troop movements, this lone division must attempt to cross the oceans of Seatus if they are to be any aid in the defence of the capital city, Solara. With no escort they make an attractive target for Es’ston Raiders. They head into the Heart of the South.

There is an Es’ston spy in their ranks, affectionately named ‘Atilbe’. A daring plot to shut down Solara’s defences? Darker forces than this are at play – and they work to no man’s agenda. The Dragon stone stirs and the key calls. Magen and his squad must test their abilities to the limit.

Marshal Damoclus wants an end to the war, and his defiance of the High Marshal is the reason the division is in this mess.
