This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Copyright Cheryl Dyson and Xina Marie Uhl, 2012, Smashwords Edition.
Brydon's quest was simple. Borrow the fabled Gauntlet of Ven-Kerrick, bring it home to prove his worth, marry the princess, and ascend the throne. He had planned for the dangerous terrain and assassins, but not the werewolves, slavers, and magical horse thieves. Luckily his worst enemy was there to help him out.

The Gauntlet Thrown

Very compelling, the first installment of this series is an action packed and startling view of a new world on the brink of invasion. The main characters begin as disparate enemies and come to form a relationship as strong as the enmity under which they met. I am looking forward to the second work, and hope it contains the same intensity and imagination as the first.
Congratulations Ladies on the beginnings of a wonderful and enlightening series.

The gaunlet

Absolutely loved book. Despite the many characters, they all have depth. I enjoyed the Christian parallels & the reality of the cost to fight evil. There was only light references to sex, so tension remained throughout. I admit I feel exhausted as another fight is eminent & ive begun to connect with the characters. What happened to Davin? What connection is there between he & alyn? It makes me want to read on but cannot make purchases now. I'll have to be patient. Thanks for the hard work you put in to entertain me. Needed it pretty bad after loss of my dad & mom, sister & several friends. I guess that's why I connected w/your characters since all had experienced loss. Keep writing, please!

The gauntlet thrown

Great story. Fast and furious. Switches from one character to another rather quickly, leaving me a little confused. Sometimes a little choppy or maybe abrupt segues is a better description . . . but overall a good read.
