In Progress. Currently editing the 3rd (umpteenth?) draft.

Temporary cover art.



A disgraced war hero.

His Livingstone blade.

The deepest betrayal.

And decades to plan their revenge…


Eran Vaye no longer believes in hope or peace. His nights are haunted by the dead, his days consumed by their demands for revenge.


Vigilant is a Livingstone blade on a quest of his own: to keep Eran’s bits of sanity together until the man learns to forgive himself.


Being immortal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but time might just be their only ally left.

In Progress. Currently editing the 1st draft.

Temporary cover.

This is the prequel to The Trials of the Tainted and will be released in chapters once it’s ready for publication.

Eran Vaye seems to always be in trouble.

His best friend is a child genius, but him?

He would much rather fly over the monastery walls and take his chances in the woods than ever sit through class again.

One night, he stumbles across a strange boy. And Eran the troublemaker risks it all to befriend the child of the enemy.

Whatever comes next, there’s no turning back now.
