A nation's elite warriors vanished. A throne in jeopardy on the heels of murder. War fanned by a shadowy cabal. And the five friends who can stop it, banished.

Accused of treason, veteran Kingsman Elohl seeks the truth of a betrayal that caused the Kingsmen to vanish a decade ago. Inked with the Blackmark and despised for it, Elohl must give everything to shatter a hidden sect that usurps the throne. A bloody war will be reaped in the shadows that will burn nations and bring kings to their knees.

“A wonderfully layered novel with spectacular world-building; a complex plot with layers of intrigue and compelling, damaged characters.” — JC Kang, Dragon Songs Saga Bestselling Author

“Like George R.R. Martin and Joe Abercrombie, award-winning author Jean Lowe Carlson writes fantasy for grown-ups, with flair and elegance.” - Daniel F., Amazon Review


When a retired veteran acquires three mysterious antique dolls at the Oregon coast, a dark curse is revealed that will force him to become the hero he never knew he was.

A contemporary dark fantasy novella set on the Oregon coast with a classic feel of Stephen King stories.
