The Rusted Blade

Aging warrior Otchigen safeguards Vasyllia, Mother of Cities, Jewel of the World, with his sword and his heart. Nobleman and beggar alike adore him.

But after a routine training exercise goes horribly wrong, Otchigen fears he is going mad. To make matters worse, his city crumbles in fear and corruption around him. For the first time in his life, he feels powerless to stop any of it.

But is it madness… or are there darker forces intent on destroying the city?

The Forge of the Covenant is a prequel novella to the Raven Son epic fantasy series inspired by Russian fairy tales. Dostoyevsky meets Tolkien in an intense, poignant tale of a rich and complex character who is neither hero, nor villain, but who finds the weight of the world on his all-too-human shoulders.

Begin an unforgettable journey in The Forge of the Covenant today!
