THE BOOKS

 

The world of Talwynn is full of lush forests, powerful magick, and hideous monsters.  Heroes bravely stride across the battlefields, and of course, villains skulk in the shadows as well.  Come walk through an enchanted land, but bring a sword with you. If you prefer a more modern adventure, that can be had as well. Take a GrimFaerie along, though...just to be safe.

A Grim Situation
Book 2 of the GrimFaerie Chronicles

 

ISBN-13: 978-1234567890
ISBN-10: 1234567890

 

Some of the Faerie prefer the dark. Unknown and unseen, there are those who protect humanity and try to keep the eternal balance of Good and Evil. GrimFaeries do it in an ugly way: with fang and claw and blood. A hard-bitten soldier of the Light, Kane the Grim walks among us, protecting innocent people from those who would use evil magick to harm and control them. His new partner, Ariana the witch, brings her two-gunned approach to the table, using bullets and magick with equal ease. Together, they keep Houston safe.

 

When someone deals drugs that instantly cause demonic possession, evidence points to someone with vast powers pulling the strings. Kane and Ariana go on the hunt, but the police aren’t far behind, and a detective from Kane’s past may expose his true nature. When Kane is framed for murder, he and Ariana must evade the police while pursuing a killer from Houston to the desert of New Mexico. It’s a heart-stopping thrill ride as Kane and Ariana race to catch the demon-monger before all hell breaks loose…literally.

Grim Undertakings
Book 1 of the GrimFaerie Chronicles

 

ISBN-13: 978-1732630048
ISBN-10: 1732630046

 

Not all of the Faerie are sweet little Pixies. There are a few who do the dirty work on the side of the Light. Unknown protectors walk among us, gleefully using fang and claw and magick, leaving a bloody trail of vanquished evildoers in their wake. They are the GrimFaeries. If you are evil enough to try to tip the balance towards the Dark side, you might just get a visit from one. And they won't be leaving a coin under your pillow.

 

When Kane the Grim is tasked with finding a serial murderer in Houston, he discovers that there is much more at stake. Magick is afoot, and an evil sorcerer is behind the killings. When he rescues a witch from certain death, his new mission becomes clear: stop the bad guy before it’s too late. Teaming up with a witch who's as good with a gun as with her spells, they'll face monsters, magick, and M-16's, as they risk everything to stop the evil in its tracks before all is lost.

 

If you're a fan of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, you'll love the first tale of the GrimFaerie Chronicles, an exciting new urban fantasy from Whit McClendon, the author of the Fire of the Jidaan Trilogy!

Reyanna's Prophecy
Book 1 of the Forge Born Duology

ISBN-13: 978-1-7326300-0-0
ISBN-10: 1-7326300-0-3

Reyanna is a woman with a secret. A human raised among the noble and wise Weya, she had passed all the tests and become a Ranger, as adept with bow and dagger as any of the elf-like people who trained alongside her. But she has a frightening power deep within, and it’s growing. When a vision strikes out of nowhere, a powerful prophecy that brings her to her knees, she is thrust headlong into a perilous journey.

The war with the vile sorcerer, Mordak, ended over twenty years ago, and the land is peaceful. The Jidaan-wielding Guardians who survived have gone their separate ways, settling into more quiet lives. The power in the short-handled, long-bladed spears has slumbered, no longer needed. When the same vision overcomes the Guardians, they know the time has come to awaken the Jidaan once more.

Gart, wielder of the Jidaan of Storms, and the most powerful of the Guardians, sets out on a dangerous quest that will either reunite him with his love or destroy the world. Three evil sorcerers have their own plans for Gart, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. And all the while, Reyanna’s power struggles for release.

Can Reyanna and the Guardians solve the riddle of the prophecy in time? Or will Gart’s obsession bring about the end of all things?

It’s a fast-paced, exciting epic fantasy adventure set in the world of the Fire of the Jidaan trilogy!

Reyanna's Fire
Book 2 of the Forge Born Duology

ISBN-13: 978-1-7326300-1-7
ISBN-10: 1-7326300-1-1

 

The tale began in Reyanna’s Prophecy: bound by a shared vision of devastating power, a young girl, aging heroes, a dangerous Mage, and a trio of evil sorcerers embark on dangerous paths. Reyanna’s Fire draws them together in the story’s stunning conclusion!

 

Reyanna and the Guardians struggle to unravel the Prophecy. At its center is Gart, the most powerful of them all. Determined to perform a ritual that will either reunite him with his long-lost wife, or destroy the world, Gart needs only the Heart of Corria, a huge, mystical diamond, to fulfill his purpose. The price had been high; he’s wounded, the Jidaan of Storms has been stolen, and his faithful dog, Beauty, is near death. Nevertheless, his obsession drives him on.

 

Reyanna’s fire magick has grown almost beyond her ability to control. When confronted by the evil sorceress, Melidia, Reyanna’s power takes over her mind and body, and she wreaks havoc to make her escape. Horrified, but determined to find answers, she rides a giant spider towards the deadly swamp known as the Poravian Mire in search of her destiny.

 

Meanwhile, Nessar, Kiran, and Layton trek across the continent to prevent Gart from completing his ritual. They, too, must brave the Mire’s lethal creatures and unknown dangers, but the hazards of the Mire are only the beginning. In her lust for power, Melidia has awakened an ancient and monstrous evil that could kill them all.

 

Can Reyanna and the Guardians stop Gart’s mission? Or will Melidia’s evil triumph after all?

 

The finale of this exciting adventure!

ISBN-10:  069279395X

The power of the evil sorcerer, Mordak, has grown, and Brunar and the Guardians must somehow fight their way free of his clutches.  Across the continent, the reluctant Gart finally accepts his Jidaan and the incredible powers that come with it, but his challenges have only just begun.  Will he survive river daemons and savage monsters to aid the Guardians in their final battle?  The fate of Talwynn hangs in the balance as brave heroes face overwhelming odds, deadly dark magick, and the wrath of a Daemon-God.     

At last, the stunning conclusion of the Fire of the Jidaan Trilogy!!​

"A fun, and very satisfying, conclusion to a fast-paced, and well written, trilogy. Highly recommended!"

"...the whole cast of warriors may well have you talking aloud to the book (I did) as they face what seems to surely be the end of all they know. It's deeply satisfying and just loads of fun as they steadily rise to the occasion, scene after scene.  This book is its own rich world of imagination, and it's every bit the conclusion fans of the first two books will be itching for."

For over two thousand years, the Realm of Talwynn has known peace. But now, the evil sorcerer Mordak has broken free, and the time for battle has come once more.

 

Brunar, a noble Mage, turns to the magick of six powerful and ancient weapons, the Jidaan, for aid.  Millennia ago, the Jidaan were wielded by trained Guardians, warriors all, fully versed in the use of their magickal gifts.  Now, the Guardians are no more, the land undefended.  The Jidaan lay silent, waiting for those newly Chosen to answer the call to arms.  Even as Mordak unleashes his army of hideous creatures and undead soldiers across the land, Brunar works feverishly to find the new Guardians in time, though not all of those Chosen accept their destiny.

 

As Mordak’s horde ravages the Realm, Brunar and the untested Guardians must rise to the challenge, or else watch Talwynn burn...
