The Saint’s Rise is Book 1 in the Ignifer Cycle.
No heroes endure…
Three thousand years ago the world fell into darkness, when the great black mouth of the Rot savaged the land. Only a single child survived the devastation; an infant with a prophecy carved into his skin, promising the rise of a hero powerful enough to slay the Rot for good: the Saint.
Now that child is a young man, beginning to question the meaning of his many scars?
Now those scars are hunted by a jealous King, ruler of a bizarre industrial city, where a thousand strange castes toil away like slaves?
Now a dark beast is watching, an Unforgiven, seeking to fulfill a promise made long ago?
And now the Rot has returned, its great black mouth growing large again in the sky, bringing chaos and fear to a world where no heroes endure?
The first book in The Ignifer Cycle, a new fantasy saga.
