Beetiful designed the book cover to Samual by Greg Curtis.
Life is not easy for Samual Hanor.
As a half elf living among the elves of Shavarra he is distrusted. And yet that same life helps to keep him safe from the army of assassins his half brother Heri keeps sending after him.
But safety isn’t enough. As a husband whose wife has been locked away by his half brother the king of Fair Fields, he lives in a dark place of conflicting emotions. He’s torn constantly between the rage for Heri for what he’s done, and the fear that he may never see his wife again. He lives in dread that she may die in that dungeon before he is finally able to rescue her. Every day he trains, aching to free her through his magic and the might of his sword. But always he’s held back by the fear that Heri might kill her the moment he comes for her. He grows in strength as he trains, yet lives with despair as he doubts that he has the power. That he will ever have the power he needs. He is trapped.
But then an ancient warlord known only as the Dragon sends an army of steel machina against the elves of Shavarra, murdering thousands and driving them from their home, and Sam finally has an enemy he can fight. An enemy he can unleash his fury on.
It’s time for him to release his fire!
