The Halfling Shires had been members of the League of Rhordia for over a hundred years. The alliance had been mutually beneficial from the start; the humans of the League received the surplus of the Shires’ bountiful farms and pastures, and the Shires received the additional security of the League’s powerful military in a very dangerous world. But recently the relationship has begun to sour. For reasons no one understands, a darkness is poisoning the once-strong friendship between the peoples. Suspicion, anger, and even violence has begun to tear the alliance apart. The threat of war, something once unthinkable, has become very real. Halfling Aeron Cadwallader, a cadet at the League’s prestigious College of Warcraft, finds himself caught between the two sides. Cast out by the League, mistrusted by his fellow halflings, he struggles to survive amidst the war that soon erupts, and find a way to help his people defend themselves against the powerful League. Broken Alliance is a story set in Mantic Games’ Kings of War universe. It is a tale of battles and magic, cruel betrayals and unexpected friendships, courage and honor.

The kingdoms of the east have forgotten magic and replaced it with science. Now they need it more than ever…
Fires of Memory is a fantasy novel set in a world where magic has been all but forgotten. In the East, science has replaced the wizards; muskets and cannons have replaced the swords and armor of the old knights. But across the mountains, Atark, a shaman of their ancient enemy, the nomadic Kaifeng, has rediscovered the old magic and, thirsting for revenge for his murdered family, he unleashes it in a new war of conquest. As city after city falls to the invader, Matt, a young soldier, and Jarren, a reluctant scholar, desperately search for an answer to this seemingly unstoppable weapon. Meanwhile, Kareen and Thelena, two young women from different cultures, are thrown together by fate—and find that in a world drenched in blood, the only thing they can count on is each other.
