Elite warrior swordsmen, they are unequalled in any time or realm . . . The King's Blades The King has decreed that new Blades must be sworn into the service of the Grand Duke Rubin, deposed by a foul usurper and currently on the run. But none of the rough youths being readied at Ironhall possess the seasoning to survive what better, more skilled Blades already have not. Still, two woefully unprepared candidates are approached with an offer of early bonding and probable death: deft but dense, rude Ranter, and eager, impetuous Ringwood . . . with a third, the inadequate swordsman but potentially able spy Bellman, enlisted into their threadbare ranks. Joining the Duke's entourage along with the courageous and prescient White Sister Trudy, the would-be champions must restore a rightful ruler to the throne or die in the process. But before them waits an army of the dead. And the Duke whom the Blades must protect to the last drop of their lifeblood is not the liege they imagined . . .

A horrific accident almost tragically ended my life. Read about how I defied the odds and overcame certain death and disability to do the extraordinary. Read how I went from a coma to become an inspiration, from not being able to walk to sprinting against a national track runner, not having the ability to read or write to teaching advanced math and writing essays. That fateful, devastating accident changed my life forever. They said there was no hope for my survival. Medical professionals prepared my parents and fiancé for my imminent death; it was just a matter of time. If I did somehow survive, I would never be the same with the massive brain damage I had sustained. I would likely not remember anyone. I would never walk again or talk again or be independent ever again. I would most likely be connected to medical machines my entire life. My real life story will give you new hope and encouragement. Let me inspire you to be the best you can be.
