Volume 1: Righteous Fury

(Publication: May 2014)


The elves, dwarves and humans all know the Älfar to be dark, relentless warriors. This is their time. In Dsôn Faïmon, the realm of the Älfar, the warriors are planning a military campaign. Caphalor and Sinthoras are looking to enlist a powerful demon to strengthen their army – but the two alfar have very different goals. While Caphalor is determined to defend the borders of their empire and no more, the ambitious Sinthoras is intent on invasion – and he has the kingdoms of dwarves, elves and men firmly in his sights.

Volume 2: Devastating Hate

(Publication: June 2015)


They are the enemies of the dwarves and control the darkest of magic, but even then power of the Älfar has its limits. To save their own people, they must wage an unwinnable war.

Sinthoras and Caphalor, two very different Älfar, watch as their plans come to fruition: the hidden land – the home of the dwarves – has fallen to their army of trolls, barbarians and Älfar, and now the lands of the hated elves are within their grasp.

But the alliance is beginning to crumble as greed triumphs over obedience. Yet Sinthoras and Caphalor face another threat: An enemy from the empire of the Älfar, thought to be defeated, has resurfaced, and while their best warriors fight in the hidden land, the Älfar homeland lies almost defenseless ...

Volume 3: Dark Paths

Publication date TBA

In a forgotten realm, the Älfar wait for the moment they will be able to return to the Hidden Land. The final battle is near, and in a dangerous, subterranean place, they meet a dwarf called Tungdil …

Outside the Hidden Land, there is another realm. The survivors of the mysterious plague have retreated there, led by Caphalor’s friend Aïsolon.

Behind a wall that is 300 paces high they wait for their people to call them into the Hidden Land.

Meanwhile, the triplets Sisaroth, Tirîgon and Firûsha are accused of murder and exiled to a subterranean place full of terrors.

There, Sisaroth meets a dwarf: Tungdil, who is caught in the Black Abyss! This encounter will forever change the fate of the Älfar and the Dwarves ...
