Breaking the tenets of Special Forces means one thing. Death.

Thorrn has his life mapped out – be the best swordsman in the king’s army and become Captain one day. What doesn’t fit in with his plans is some short, unimpressive waif claiming to be his soul companion.

Evyn cannot quite believe that this world of Oberrot is real, but grey grass is hard to fake. To expose her true origins risks all-out war with the magical community that covets her blood.

But when the king demands that he hand Evyn over, Thorrn is confronted with a choice: protect Evyn and keep her secret from the magical community who would drain her for the power resonating inside her, or turn her over to save his career, family name and reputation.

When a powerful mage moves against the kingdom, Thorrn and Evyn will have to summon all their courage. But they find allies from unexpected corners – including different worlds and times. For alongside the realms of Oberrot and Earth are the multiverses, and one of them should surely be able to help...


A swordsman, an apothecarist, a shy librarian (“I’m beginning to think being underestimated is kind of my superpower”), and a powerful mage. Only they can save the kingdom.

The world is ending. Rory can’t wait.

Stealing souls from under the noses of the guardians of the underworld is hard work, but for immortal Cat Sidhe Rory, it's all he has ever known. Hiding behind humour, he masks the dark waters closing overhead, but the longer he puts a smile on his face, the more real the threat becomes.

The world is beginning. Darla can’t wait.

Darla is an explorer, endlessly fascinated by the land above. As a selkie, she remains trapped under the waves except for once every seven years. But, as luck would have it, now is her time to escape the waves. Desperate to sate her hunger for adventure, she finds her way to the surface, ready to experience all of the wonders of the world for the very first time.

But the fae world is ending. What will they risk to save it… and each other?

Treason takes many forms. Once trust is broken, it is hard to reforge.

Thorrn discovers this all too clearly, much to his detriment. But someone wants Thorrn dead, and they don’t care how many lives they ruin in the process.

Evyn learns decisions must be made, no matter the cost, even if it brings her pain. This world is brutal, and navigating the customs is endlessly confusing. When is a stone just a stone, and when is it an expression of undying love?

Aubin stays away to recover, but when word of Thorrn’s predicament reaches him, he will have to face his nightmares again. And Tuniel distances herself from them all, to win favour with the king.

Meanwhile, there is a spate of murders targeting Oberrotian officials, and Thorrn’s contingent is sent to investigate. Back to being the lowest of the low, Thorrn struggles to trust again – especially when he finds two of the most powerful mages in the world working together, and one of them is the woman he loves.

Thorrn doesn’t know who he can rely on – be they mages, swordsmen, or kings – but making the wrong choice could spell the end of him, Evyn, and even the kingdom.

vyn is running out of time. A princess could have a solution–or be her downfall.

Newly made Rangers, Thorrn and Aubin race to find the cause of Evyn's strange illness, seeking out Princess Sabatha of Rush. Aubin’s self-doubt threatens the outcomes of the mission while King Gough is making political moves, hoping that Evyn continues her betrothal to Prince Gerlay of Dinahe rather than choosing anyone else.

But destiny weaves around them, drawing the multiverses and their hearts together. What is Evyn’s calling as the Spirit Shaper, and what does it mean to be the Lonely Man?

The third book in the thrilling King's Swordsman series, perfect for fans of sword and sorcery portal and multiverse fantasy.
