The appearance of an old enemy complicates matters further. As confrontations escalate and tensions rise, Draukenhaus realizes that for all the bloodshed in Moongoth, his troubles are only just beginning. Scott Sandridge weighs in on Against the Drimlith David West, of "Heroes of the Fallen" fame has recently posted his review of "Azieran: Against the Drimlith" authored by yours truly. Check out the link to his blog to read all about it.
Baron Von Draukenhaus has been summoned from a century long, self-imposed exile to lead a company of expendable heroes in striking a tactical blow against an enemy hellbent on enslaving all of Azieran. Wielding Darkannis, the blade upon which a horned, demonic bat is crucified, Draukenhaus finds himself accompanied by a motley band of strangers: Mizzerotte the volatile mage, St.
Cerillian Skiles the pious saint, Diabolique the seductive trap master, Groan the steadfast giant, Delorian Dekx the deceptive harlequin, and a mysterious figure cloaked in black known only as The Archer. During their travels, they must overcome personal differences and complete their individual secret agendas while building the trust and friendship needed to succeed in the world's most desperate gambit.
Azieran: Coveting Bloodshed is the first book of The Bloodshed Trilogy, detailing the exploits of Baron Von Draukenhaus as he rediscovers a world he once chose to abandon. Sir Vaiden Erro is a knight of the Malkan Order, sorcerers sworn to uphold the ever-expanding mandates of the Calantian bureaucracy. Originally assigned to guard an ambassador in a foreign land, it is through a twist of fate that Vaiden finds himself charged to help a colleague, Alix, track down and destroy the headquarters of the Drimlith Cabal—those responsible for the recent assassination of a prominent politician.
Azieran: Blood And Kings
Their course leads them through the borderlands of civility into Bludland, a country where both the customs and the people are wrought of extreme cruelty. Indeed, as much can be expected by a nation which reveres Bakkal, God of the Undead, above all others. Against this backdrop the two knights escorted by a small troop of Bludland soldiers travel across the land, through strange cities and even stranger circumstances.
To further agitate matters, rumors spread that Bakkal has been slain, provoking social and religious unrest. Meanwhile the Drimlith discover they are being sought and retaliate with their own ruthless countermeasures.
Against the Drimlith is the first novel set in the richly detailed Azieran fantasy world, filled with innumerable dangers, political consequences, and magical intrigue. It is a grim world where civilization is on the wane, savage wastelands meet crumbling keeps, and men of virtue are a rarity. Within this context, dark fantasy takes on new meaning, epic in scope and elegant in design.

What drives our fascination? Superstition, faith, desire both baleful and beatific. Does it really work? Who knows — it seemed to once, and that's all that is necessary. Fortune, like gods and demons, is fickle and cannot be counted upon to strike often or consistently. Or conveniently. And so — unless we are gods ourselves, or blessed with powers beyond the norm — we quest for the next best sure thing. Readers will get a dose of classic weird, pulp fiction, alongside grim sci-fi blends that pits sorcery against technology as well as swords.
The Table below lists the artifacts of interest per story with notes. Anthologies are a great device for discovering authors, and I did yet again. According to him via Facebook conversation the first scene and finale were somewhat influenced by the s film version of Mickey Spillane's "Kiss Me, Deadly.

Edited by Christopher Heath , the anthology comprises eight short stories and three novellas from established authors and relative newcomers, as well as a classic piece by Clark Ashton Smith and Foreward from Jason M Waltz. The story selection is varied, and some even tie into Christopher Heath's own extensive world of Azieran.
Like any collection, the contents can be a mixed bag, though I'm pleased to say the vast majority of these tales are well worth the read. Not your ordinary lover's quarrel, this story opened the anthology with a bang and set the tone for the rest of the book. The Book of Echoes , a brand new tale of Dorgo the Dowser by Joe Bonadonna , continues the exploits of one of my favourite fantasy characters. First seen in Mad Shadows: The Weird Tales of Dorgo the Dowser , the retired mercenary chases down a rare and powerful tome that has crossed dimensions from Azieran to Dorgo's world of Tanyime.
