Over fifty years have passed since Daleth the seemingly immortal Witch-King, and his army conquered the Ember Kingdom.
Now, with the once fertile lands and its enslaved people dying around him, the Witch-King, driven by his insatiable thirst for eternal youth, prepares his forces to march on the prosperous neighbouring Freestates. It will be the beginnings of a conquest that could destroy nations, bringing death and destruction on an unimaginable scale.
Then, when a peasant huntress whose rare gift was concealed from birth is exposed, it sets in motion a chain of events that could alter the destiny of generations to come.
What readers have to say about it
“Kings and Daemons has everything I love in fantasy – strong plot, well-constructed fictional world and magic system, great ensemble cast, and even romance. As a lover of romance, this really pleased me.”—Lili Marcus
“The first book in the The Gifted and the Cursed trilogy, Kings and Daemons, is an incredibly special fantasy read that entertained me tremenduously. The writing is fluid and the story is thrilling; the characters make you want to get to know them better.”—Theartsyreader
“A great book. It might be rather dark at times, but that is offset by a beautiful love story that runs throughout. Great female lead character. The fantasy world in which she lived was so bleak and the revelation of her gift was a beautiful thing when set against such a backdrop. I’d recommend this to readers of fantasy and romance alike.”—Lisa
“Kings & Daemons is a fun, thrilling fantasy story full of unexpected twists and lovable characters. Marcus Lee creates a world with his book that is both overwhelming and dazzling to the reader.”—Evelin
About the Author
“Writing hasn’t always been a serious hobby for me … but it has always been there, lurking in the shadows, serving me well when called upon.
As I look back over the years, I realise I was guilty of writing many short stories, as well as poetry, and I’d like to think, that even if they were never intended to be published, they were nonetheless warmly received by the intended recipients.
Then in 2019, I was inspired to write not just a short story, or poetry, but a book. Then, suddenly, one book turned into a trilogy and a labour of love, and it was a love I wanted to share with the world.
So, here we are. The pandemic that put my career in sport on hold also gave me the opportunity to lavish time on my alternative hobby, and now I’ve started, I don’t intend to stop.”
