Announcing Heritage

We are excited to announce that summer of 2014 will see the release of Heritage by David L. Craddock. First in a series, Heritage chronicles the adventures of Aidan, Prince of Torel.

Prince Aidan Gairden’s life has been planned out for him since 800 years before he was born. On his sixteenth birthday, he will take up Heritage, the magical sword wielded by his mother and generations of Gairden ancestors before him, and lead the kingdom of Torel into a new golden age of peace and prosperity.
That’s how his mother imagines his impending reign, anyway. Aidan prefers to see it as decades of sitting in an uncomfortable chair listening to old men bicker over property lines and taxes.
To Aidan’s utter shock, Heritage grants his wish. In front of his parents and the entire kingdom, the sword rejects Aidan, leaving Torel without an heir.

While Aidan struggles to find his place, an ancient evil awakens and provokes a war between Torel and the warrior tribes of the west. Thrust upon a bloody trail of deception and corruption, Aidan is forced to make a desperate choice: lead Torel in a war he does not believe in, or be banished from his home and family forever.

Stay tuned here for updates on Heritage!
