The Shadowbearer

Book 1.5, Aegis of the Gods - An Aegis of the Gods Book

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


In a world where magic corrupts and kingdoms constantly war, the power that drives the world stirs. It whispers promises of greatness in the heads of the men and women that wield it. Now, it has spoken to the mind of a king.
Knight Commander Stefan Dorn, leader of the Unvanquished, has known only war, death and, victory. All in the name of his loyalty to King Nerian the Lightbearer, a man he idolized.
Until now.
Everything he thought he knew about the King, his people, and his world is coming to an end. At a time when there should be peace, he's once again called to war.
Torn between shocking changes at home, his family, loyalty to his men and his King, Stefan wishes only to enjoy life away from the battlefield. But with the new campaign comes a rabid, unforgiving enemy and a potential cataclysm.
Follow him as he fights to save his family, his people, his honor, and his birthright from the grips of the shade. Can he save them all? If not, which will he choose, which will he lose?
The Shadowbearer is a rousing and engaging prequel to Etchings of Power and a worthy addition to the Aegis of the Gods series.

Customer Reviews


This book was a nice read, and was well written besides a few things.

1) The grammatical errors were only a slight annoyance, however, I found that characters names were misspelled, which tore me away from the book and story.

2) It was difficult to follow in some places, especially when multiple powers, races, items, and characters were mentioned so freely. I found myself saying, "Wait a minute, what is this again? Who is this and what are they?"

Besides that, I liked the book. Oh, another small thing...where is any other character depth? I cared and knew very little of any character besides the Protagonist.
