As reward for stopping a serial killer and restoring the Kingdom of Vlachia to its rightful ruler, Dragozin Hector and his queen dragon, Karalti, have earned a noble title, a castle, and land of their own.
There’s only one problem — it’s occupied. By a freaking elder vampire.
Not only has the vampire unleashed the blight of undeath across the land, but Hector’s nemesis is on the warpath. His mission? To steal Karalti, kill a god, and use their combined power to become the Insane God-Emperor of Archemi.
Hector never wanted to go back to war, not even in a video game. But now, he must fight to claim his territory from Ol’ Fangface before everything is taken from him — his dragon, his territory, and the woman he loves.
Dragon Award-nominated author James Osiris Baldwin writes epic dark fantasy, LitRPG, and science fiction. He is the author of the bestselling Archemi Online Chronicles(Dragon Seed, Trial by Fire, Kingdom Come) and the critically acclaimed occult horror series, The Hound of Eden.
James has historically devoured books by Ed Greenwood, Frank Herbert, Mercedes Lackey, Robert T. Bakker, Alan Moore, Eiji Yoshikawa, Margaret Weiss, Anne McCaffery, and Neil Gaiman. Like a literary locust, he chewed through every Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance novel he could get his hands on, as well as most of the science fiction shelf and a lot of nonfiction animal books.
