Book One of the Wild Country Series
In this thrilling first installment of The Wild Country Series, we meet Rhydian of Ainsgard, a Maurader, and a man whose knowledge of combat and magic from his years of tireless training in the Castle of Ainsgard have cultivated him into a gifted fighter and a ruthless assassin. Mauraders are well known for three things: their skills, their results, and being bound by their word. People may not like the Mauraders, but they will certainly pay for their much-needed services when creatures begin snatching up townsfolk. The Wild Country is an unforgiving continent, filled with monsters, war, and conflict. Very few people can survive outside the Royal Cities of mankind, and when they need protection beyond the skills any knight can provide, they hire the services of the Marauders.Marauders are an order once dedicated to pillaging and murder but have now evolved into men and women of honorable repute. In order to make a living, Rhydian offers his unique set of skills and services to those willing to pay. Whether it's hunting a monster, protecting a caravan, or fighting to save lives, he is bound by the magic ritual Word of Honor to fulfill any job he accepts to the best of his ability. But, as his life moves forward, so do other mysterious events that could mean a more significant role for him within this unstable world as a mystic voice calls him towards both his past and his future. Follow Rhydian's journey through the Wild Country in a fast-paced, action-filled fantasy of a man trying to make an honest living in a world of monsters and magic.
