by BWW News Desk - Jul 21, 2016

Cedric is back. Sick and wounded, the lord of RoseThorn must leave everything behind to recover from his wound and regain his strength. He sets across the dangerous lands of the western Empire, which now lie in open revolt, in search of anyone who can help him. RoseThorn is gone. A dream smashed to the ground and seemingly lost forever. Cedric is a castle lord without a castle. A man without a home. Left with only his anger and a desire for revenge to guide him. 'Cedric of RoseThorn: Book Two' is part two in a series. The story picks up where we left off in book one. But book two is more of an adventure set against the beautiful hills, fields, and forests of the western Empire. Cedric's trustworthy stableboy, Dak, is back. Along with new characters and the Ghosts that have haunted him from the start. Book Two traces Cedric's development from a desperate lord at the edge of an empire to a bold warrior true to his friends, loyal to his Lord King, and once again willing to hope against all odds. The Cedric Series and other books by S. Thomas Kaza are available at major online book retailers. (more...)
