When his colleague is murdered, Wolf Dasher of Her Majesty’s Shadow Service is sent across the Gleaming Sea to Alfar, magical land of elves, to investigate. What seems like a simple mystery masks a deadly web of assassination, betrayal,and zealotry. Religious extremists wanting to topple the government, a mad general with an unquenchable thirst for conquest, and a megalomaniac with a messiah complex all wrestle for control of Alfar’s destiny.
Undercover, out of his depth, and pursued by a sadistic killer, Wolf races against time to prevent a devastating act of terrorism that will alter the balance of power forever.
About the Author
John R. Phythyon, Jr. wishes he were a superhero or a magician, but, since he has not yet been bitten by a radioactive spider or received his letter from Hogwarts, he writes adventure stories instead. He is the author of the Wolf Dasher series of fantasy-thriller mash-up novels, two modern fairy tales, a two-act comedy, and the full-length fantasy novel, THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER. Prior to becoming a novelist, he was an award-winning game designer.
He lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife, their children, two dogs, and a cat. It is rarely quiet, but it’s often entertaining. His current projects include the next book in the Wolf Dasher series, world peace, and desperately wishing for the Cincinnati Bengals to win a Super Bowl in his lifetime.
