A man sold into slavery. A woman born into power. Will the two be able to work together to battle the Ghoule Overlord?
Bryen spent ten years fighting for his life on the white sand of the Pit. But now he faces a new challenge deadlier even than constant combat against man and beast in the Colosseum. Forced into a new form of servitude, Bryen is compelled to become a Protector and charged with guarding the Lady of the Southern Marches from both steel and magic. For she holds the key to power in Caledonia. Gain her, and you gain the Kingdom.
Some threats are known and obvious while others lurk in the shadows. No matter the danger, Bryen is coerced by magic to do all that he can to keep the Lady alive.
At the same time, the Ghoule Overlord is preparing to send his Legions to complete his conquest of Caledonia. Will Bryen – the only one who can prevent the Overlord from releasing his Ghoules on the land – stand and fight? Or will Bryen find a way to break free of his bond and walk away from Aislinn and the Kingdom that enslaved him?

Cornell was a young hippie, a new mod, a plastic punk, a new-romantic, a new-waver and now proudly calls himself newly middle aged. Considering life to always have been better in the 70’s and 80’s he finds his cell-phone too big and heavy and hates all tv series so much that he wants to smash his TV (much as a rock star in the 70’s would have) except TV’s don’t explode anymore when you do that...and they’re a whole lot more expensive to replace. Having smoked too much in his teens, drunk too much in his 20’s and 30’s and now with a newly found passion for fitness, his early life disregard for health combined with his later life fitness fad have given him the voice of a smooth, smouldering hunk and the body of a middle aged man who smoked and drank too much in his early life! Narrating audiobooks has shown Cornell that life in the modern world can be better than good and he has found a peace in telling stories. His daughter and life-partner (children of the 70’s don’t get ‘married’) are very patient and much cleverer than he is.
