Three nations are crumbling.
Darkness is gathering.
And only Eric remains to stand against it.
Eric stumbles through the wilderness, searching, hunting – desperate for sign of his sister. But the girl is gone, stolen away by the power of the Soul Blade. With each passing hour its hold on her tightens, her spirit fading before the onslaught of its magic. If he cannot save her soon, it will claim her soul. And he will have to kill her.
Meanwhile, Gabriel is locked in the cells beneath Ardath. The darkness presses in around him, absolute, suffocating. Time, hope, sanity, all have long since slipped beneath the waves of his despair. Only it remains – the unrelenting voice of the demon. It haunts the darkness, tempting him with promises of freedom.
How long can he resist its call?
A note from the author:
SOUL BLADE is finally here, and with it, The Sword of Light Trilogy is complete. For those of you unfamiliar with the series, it follows the story of a young man named Eric, who has the magic to manipulate the weather. Unfortunately for him and everyone else, Eric cannot control his magic, and inadvertently destroys the unsuspecting town of Oaksville. What follows is a story of courage and redemption, as Eric travels the Three Nations with a growing cast of friends and foes. Soon the fate of the very world hangs in the balance, as Eric is drawn into the ancient battle between the Three Gods and the forces of Darkness.
For those who are interested, Soul Blade (Book 3) is now on sale for 99c. But only until the 3rd of December, so get in quick! Readers can also grab the series starter Stormwielder, for 99c on Amazon.
Aaron Hodges was born in 1989 in the small town of Whakatane, New Zealand. He studied for five years at the University of Auckland, completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Geography, and a Masters of Environmental Engineering. After working as an environmental consultant for two years, he grew tired of office work and decided to quit his job and see the world. During his travels he picked up an old draft of a novel he once wrote in High School – titled The Sword of Light – and began to rewrite the story. This book, Soul Blade, marks the final conclusion of that epic tale.
