Today is the day. The Lost comes to a close as war comes to Cor Chatha: The Rock of Battle.

It has been a long road since 1st Platoon drove their Zodiacs into that unseasonable fog off the coast of Norway, and found themselves in this strange and haunted world. It has led them here. To face one of the mightiest armies on the face of the planet.


War Has Come.

The sorcerous rebellion within the Kingdom of Cor Legear was only the beginning. Now half a million men and monsters are on their way to invade the kingdom in the name of the Empire.

All that stands in the way is the fortress of Cor Chatha.

The Rock of Battle.

Conor and his fellow Recon Marines have ridden ahead to scout the enemy and try to disrupt the advance. A recon platoon can only do so much against such an army, however.

And the army is the least of their concerns.

Monsters, sorcery, and ancient evils descend on the Rock, as the Marines and their allies prepare to make what might be their last stand.

The Rock of Battle is available now on Kindle and in Paperback.


Today is a twofer, though. Not only is The Rock of Battle out in ebook and print, but The Alchemy of Treason has finally arrived on audio.

Friends. Foes. Where is the line?

Conor and his allies return from the quest for the Sword of Categym to find the Galel kingdom under siege. The forces of the Empire of Ar-Annator gather on the frontier, and the Marines must fight their way through enemy lines to reach friendly territory.

To make matters worse, an attempt is made on King Uven’s life, grievously wounding him. As traitorous elements among his retainers make a grab for the throne, a deeper, darker, sorcerous plot makes itself felt. The Empire has planned this for a long time. The foul things they’re in league with have been planning longer still.

Can Recon Marines and their allies adapt quickly enough to head off a coup before darkness envelops Cor Legear?

Audiobook includes WarGate After Action Report with the author.

If you’re an audiobook listener, don’t miss it. Get it here.


I hope you enjoy the conclusion to The Lost. We’re not done with this world, though. Look for more to come…

    Will you make a follow up series? I need more! There is so much left to explore in the world you’ve built and there is too much unexplained!
