Valkin Kendor is beginning to learn who he really is. The farm boy from Tillmandor has grown much since his capture by the King of the Barbarians, Vallentor, now trained in the mysterious arts beyond the realms of magic and science and not a moment too soon for the war against the kingdom of Sarcodia is looming! King Braithwaite of Sarcodia extends an invite to the infamous gauntlet contest for the prize of a kiss from his beautiful daughter, Princess Melody, and 20,000 Zafrith. The opportunity is too hard to resist for Valkin.
Valkin meets a fellow participant, Kendrick. Touched by Kendrick’s desire to win the prize money for his mother, Valkin wins the contest for him but, just before he claims his kiss from Princess Melody, she is shot! Gillmanor, host kingdom of the contest, is flung into a state of chaos, as a potential alliance between Sarcodia is uncertain and Kendrick mysteriously disappears after the contest!
Valkin and his Wolven companion, Rufor Rafelieus, track him down to the kingdom of DallaVega, where Vallentor’s younger brother resides. Greeted by a very hostile welcome, they nearly die traversing the Fields of Iriseae! When backup finally arrives in the form of the Werethall King, Tereartre Levon and Vallentor, their troubles only worsen, for they did not expect the arrival of the Dragon King, Revengor from Razortor, and the Serpent King, Arnaiboa from Aglypha, Sarcodia’s strongest allies! Vallentor must bridge the gap between himself and his brother in order to save two kingdoms from certain destruction! Valkin finds himself completely outclassed next to monsters he serves and painfully discovers that his training is not yet complete!

If you enjoyed reading this book, then I’d like to please ask you for a favor. Would you be so kind enough to leave a review for this book on Amazon? It’ll be greatly appreciated!
Ok, firstly, I have a couple of confessions to make. The first is that I used to watch Star Wars every single holiday during high school and college (Yep, every single episode). The second is the first time I played Pokemon, I stayed up until 3 am trying to level up my Charmander (I’m a big fan of fire-type). The third is that I love Lord of the Rings and sometimes I dream about being an elf but if I can’t, I’ll settle for being one of the Dunedain. And last and certainly not least, yes, I haven’t watched a single episode of Game of Thrones (I hear it’s a damn cool series!) nor read any of the Harry Potter books. Ok, before you judge me on those ones, just hear me out. The reason I haven’t, is because I’m an author and as an author, I want to independently conceive super cool ideas and characters that my super fans will love and remember. Watching Lord of the Rings was an exception though (come on, you have to admit that it was a pretty cool exception hey!). Truly, I was never the same after, “Return of the King”. But seriously, that’s why I’ve made the sacrifice. Still, I have a huge amount of respect for J.K. Rowling and George R.R. Martin for their incredible achievements. My fervent wish is to follow in their footsteps with a series I’ve written called, “Outcast of the Dark Knight”. I started writing Outcast in the year 2000. Back then, I never knew anything about publishing (I still don’t know much about publishing lol!) but I knew I loved writing from a very early age and I had this story bubbling within and I just had to get it out there. Today, with the third book on its way, I’m proud to say the journey has just begun! For me, the greatest honor I can receive is my fans enjoying reading my books. That makes me happy and it makes it all worth it!
