Publisher's Summary

Paladins are nothing but trouble. Stories about paladins are everywhere, noble warriors riding magic steeds into battle against terrible foes. Champions of their gods. Heroes to everyone except those who already have everything. Paladins are notorious for upsetting the balance of power, to the detriment of any who don't worship their deity.

So when Krell is called to service by the capricious god of the seas and skies, ReckNor, those with wealth and power can't help but be concerned. ReckNor hasn't called a paladin in years, and his nature is ever-changing and erratic. The fact that Krell is also an uneducated nobody with a stubborn streak as wide as the sea turns their concerns into fear.

All of which matters less than the threat clawing its way from the waves, ready to turn the ocean red with spilled blood....

Critic Reviews

"Scott Fortney narrates an action-packed fantasy in which a young man is called to service by an erratic god.... Fortney creates a unique voice for each character, and the clever use of reverb helps denote the dialogue. A subtle score creates the sound of a blockbuster movie, and the accompanying sound effects capture the ear. Fortney moves through each voice with infectious enthusiasm as the story shifts in tone from humorous to pulse-pounding. Accompanied by subtle music and sound effects, Fortney voices all the characters, delivering an engaging production and a fantastic start to the series." (AudioFile)
