The Black Fortress
Centuries before the rise of Invictus, Torg fought another great war.
A Short 28 Page Story— Prequel to the highly praised Death Wizard Chronicles.
Torg, the Death Wizard and hero of The Death Wizard Chronicles, faces a hideous Druid Queen who controls an army of minions through the immense power of her will. Among those doing her bidding is a Stone-Eater: a fierce and powerful creature who obtains its powers from eating stone.

Torg's First Death
"The Death Wizard Chronicles" is a six-book epic fantasy that debuted in August 2012 (Bell Bridge Books). The main character, Torg, is a Death-Knower wizard who has died and then returned to life more than a thousand times. The Short 13 page story "Torg’s First Death" describes the first time Torg dies and returns, thus becoming the first Death-Knower wizard in centuries.

1. Forged in Death
The DW Chronicles is not for children and teenagers -- or the faint of heart. But if you like graphic fantasy that is bursting with excitement yet still has a lot going on between the lines, I think you'll love my series.
In a groundbreaking paradox, the Death Wizard, a champion of good, derives his power from a source traditionally seen as negative -- death. His nemesis, an evil sorcerer, derives his power from the sun, the benevolent source of all life. Their struggle to control the fate of the planet Triken will take your breath away.

2. Chained By Fear
For more than seventy years, the most powerful sorcerer in the world has held a woman prisoner in a magical tower.
Invictus forces Laylah, his own sister, to be his queen.
Even the immense power Laylah draws from moonlight does not give her the strength to free herself . . . until she forms an unlikely alliance with two of the sorcerer's most trusted soldiers as well as an ancient demon with diabolical motives.
Laylah's dramatic escape leads her to the one man who might be able to save her-Torg, the Death-Knower wizard. Drawn together by supernatural passion, the pair attempts to outrun Invictus' minions and reach the safety of the White City.

3. Shadowed by Demons
"Many things roam the streets in the darkness, and some are not human. Creatures lurk in the crannies and alleyways, pouncing on their victims with murderous intent. It is not unusual to be awoken from sleep by screams, but most of us just check the latches on the shutters and press our pillows against our ears, hoping the horrors of the night don't find their way into our own bedchambers." Demons roam unchecked as the evil sorcerer, Invictus, tightens his grip on the world . . . Hounded by Invictus' minions, Torg and Laylah escape into the northern wilds of Triken where the wizard, sorceress, and a handful of loyal companions encounter a menagerie of hideous monsters. Even worse, the demon Vedana manipulates their every move from her black realm, wielding her wicked magic like a diabolical chess-master. Against such evil, what hope have they to reach the safety of the White City?

4. Torn by War
Everyone they love may be doomed. Everything they cherish may be destroyed. There is no turning back. Torg and Laylah’s world is in chaos; their life together, in jeopardy. Even a powerful Death Wizard such as Torg may not triumph as three terrible wars are unleashed upon the land. The evil druids of the forest Dhutanga—giant, insect-like monsters—swarm to attack the white horsemen of Jivita. The druids are superior both in strength and numbers, but the forces of good are not without hope. Torg and his Tugars stand by the horsemen’s sides. Several hundred leagues to the east, an army of zombies invades Tējo, the great desert. Most of the Tugars have left to aid their allies, and only a few warriors remain to defend the Tugars’ homeland against this horrendous assault. The most devastating force of all is led by Mala, the ruined snow giant, who has marched with his massive army of cretins and golden soldiers to assail the black fortress of Nissaya. Triken is on fire.

5. Blinded by Power
The final battle-and the stakes have never been higher. The long and bitter war is not over yet. One last battle remains, and it will set the Green Plains on fire. Mala's army of monsters has come to challenge what remains of the white horsemen. At stake? Torg's life . . . and Laylah's freedom. But even if the Chain Man and his minions are somehow defeated, an all-powerful being still waits in the wings-Invictus, himself. When the sorcerer finally makes his appearance, will Torg and Laylah's fragile hopes be incinerated?
