The Saga of the Redeemed

The story of Tyvian Reldamar – rogue, duelist, criminal, and very reluctant hero – as he wrestles with the magic ring on his finger that prevents him from doing evil and pushes him to do good.

An Explanation/Where to start: Upon it’s initial release, Book 1 (The Oldest Trick) was split into two halves at my publisher’s insistence. Therefore, though The Iron Ring is technically the first “book” in the series, it is really only half a book. I would encourage new readers to skip over The Iron Ring and Iron and Blood and go straight to The Oldest Trick. That said, if you just want to try the series out and don’t want to commit, feel free to buy The Iron Ring first and then, if it catches your fancy, proceed to Iron and Blood and then, if I’ve really sold you, to No Good Deed, which is book #2.

Tyvian Reldamar—criminal mastermind, rogue mage, and smuggler of sorcerous goods—has just been betrayed by his longtime partner and left for dead in a freezing river. To add insult to injury, his mysterious rescuer took it upon himself to affix Tyvian with an iron ring that prevents the wearer from any evildoing.

Revenge just got complicated.

On his quest to get even, Tyvian navigates dark international conspiracies, dodges midnight assassins, and uncovers the plans of the ruthless warlord Banric Sahand—all while running from a Mage-Defender determined to lock him up. Tyvian will need to use every dirty trick in the book to avoid a painful and ignominious end, even as he discovers that sometimes even the world’s most devious man needs a shoulder to lean on.

Part II of the Saga of the Redeemed picks up right where The Iron Ring left off …

After Tyvian Reldamar gets double-crossed by his business partner, he is affixed with an iron ring that prevents the wearer from any evildoing. Not one to be deterred by this set-back, he quickly puts into motion a plan for revenge—one that will use every dirty trick in the book.

But things are never simple for mastermind Tyvian, especially not after he uncovers a sinister plot: evil wizard Banric Sahand is planning to decimate the city of Freegate. Now Tyvian must learn to work with—and rely on—his motley crew of accomplices including an adolescent pickpocket, an obese secret-monger, a fearsome gnoll, and a Mage Defender…who is also trying to get him arrested. Time is running out for Tyvian’s plan for revenge—while the fate of the city hangs in the balance.

Cursed with a magic ring that forbids skullduggery, Tyvian Reldamar’s life of crime is sadly behind him. Now reduced to fencing moldy relics and wheedling favors from petty nobility, he’s pretty sure his life can’t get any worse.

That is until he hears that his old nemesis, Myreon Alafarr, has been framed for a crime she didn’t commit and turned to stone in a penitentiary garden. Somebody is trying to get his attention, and that somebody is playing a very high-stakes game that will draw Tyvian and his friends back to the city of his birth and right under the noses of the Defenders he’s been dodging for so long. And that isn’t even the worst part. The worst part is that the person pulling all the strings is none other than the most powerful sorceress in the West: Lyrelle Reldamar.

Tyvian’s own mother.

  1. OK, I see you have the 3rd book scheduled for Fall of 2015. It is now 2016, really need this book. Get back to work.:)

    • Thanks for the reply! That reminds me to update the release info: it’s currently slated for April 2016. It’s also not my fault! I’m just waiting for my editor to get back to me with notes. Once I get them, I’ll edit the book and get it turned around.

      (I’ve been waiting since last May!)

  2. You need a better editor. in a world of self publishing options, it seems a challenge to accommodate the strictures and disadvantages of the traditional publishing houses. In a world of awful writing, it’s fun to find basic fantasy that is accessible yet penned by someone with better than the 5th grade vocabulary and a willingness to venture beyond the coming of age paradigm popularized by series like Twilight, Fallen, and similar.

  3. Any thoughts on another book? I absolutely love the series and any news would be awesome thanks!

    • Hi there! So glad you liked the series!
      I can’t make a formal announcement yet about any upcoming books, but you can expect one soon. I’m pretty sure Tyvian will return, and probably this year. Keep your fingers crossed and watch this blog. As soon as I can make an announcement, I’ll post it here first. Thanks again!
