The Grudgebearer Trilogy

Unable to break an oath without breaking their connection with each other, the Aern served the Eldrennai faithfully for thousands of years until the Sundering. Now, the Aern, Vael, and Eldrennai meet every hundred years for a Grand Conjunction to renew their tenuous peace.

While the tortures of slavery remain fresh in Kholster's mind, most of the rest of the world has moved on. Almost six hundred years after the Sundering, an Eldrennai prince carelessly breaks the truce by setting up a surprise museum exhibit containing sentient suits of Aernese armor left behind, never to be touched, lest Kholster kill every last Eldrennai. Through their still-existing connection with their ancient armor, the Aern know instantly, and Kholster must find a way to keep his oaths, even those made in haste and anger. While Kholster travels to the Grand Conjunction with his Freeborn daughter and chosen successor Rae'en, his troops travel by sea, heading for war.

"Peopled with compelling characters, filled with action and intrigue, set in a fascinating world at the boundary between history and legend, Grudgebearer is a gripping and ultimately satisfying novel." -David B. Coe/D.B. Jackson, Author of the Weremyste Cycle and the Thieftaker Chronicles

"Many refreshingly strong and complex female characters in this nuanced fantasy epic... which features a particularly interesting and thoughtful exploration of slavery." - Publishers Weekly

"Literary methamphetamine. The best thing to hit paranormal fantasy in years.” - Paul Goat Allen of

"The action, vampirics, and outright outrageousness have all been cranked up as high as the printed page can stand. J.F. Lewis' vampires pack an amazing array of powers, and Eric is the bloodsucking equivalent of a Spinal Tap song: he goes all the way to eleven." -Michael M. Jones of Green Man Review

"Uncovering the mystery surrounding [Lewis's] rebel hero is a reward in itself, while the action scenes in this raucous, raunchy blood-opera make for a very satisfying crunch." - Dark Realms Magazine

When you are outside and it’s cold enough to see your breath, remember that is also the first warning a dragon attack is imminent.
