Secrets. Scheming. Magic.

Secrets abound on the island nation of Godewyne. The fact that defenses are weak at the King’s seat, Castle Godewyne, is not a secret to power hungry noble Aderlard Maculinus; nor to court Jester Josh who seems to be closely guarding a few secrets of his own. Speaking of secrets, what is the hidden agenda of the royal assassin and what is Wickenshire’s blacksmith, Ranulf, hiding about his past? How will Ranulf’s secrets affect his orphaned grandson/apprentice Rollie?

Will these and other secrets be revealed or pushed into the shadows with the arrival of a mysterious stranger who wants to commission Rollie to forge an odd Druid token out of a mysterious metal?

And once the secret of the token is revealed will anything ever be the same?

The debut novel from Fraser Scott, “Forged in Fire” is a new addition to the great Fantasy tradition of Jeff Wheeler, James Maxwell, and David Eddings and is the first book of The Godewyne Chronicles (Book 1: Forged in Fire, Book 2: A Song Among the Trees, & Book 3: Rollie Revealed).

Fraiser Scott: “When I was a teenager, during the summer, after I got off work, I liked to sit in the shade of a big maple tree in our back yard with an iced tea and a book. My favorites were fantasy books; the best were the series. I’d get lost in the legends and ancient chronicles of wizards, warriors, fairies, quests, guardians, magic, gods, sorcerers, dragons, demons, champions, elves, angels, and fantastic beasts — from ‘The Lord of the Rings’ to ‘The Belgariad’ to ‘Shannara’ to ‘The Elric Saga’ to ‘The Eternal Champion’ series – I just couldn’t get enough. I was born too early for the Harry Potter books and George R.R. Martin’s ‘Game of Thrones’ and the ‘Wheel of Time’ and ‘The Lightbringer’ series by Brent Weeks, so I had to read those without my maple tree (and the iced tea was replaced by a frosty IPA). I’d like to think that there is some kid (or grown up kid like me) who’s reading ‘The Godewyne Chronicles’ under a tree somewhere, getting lost into the story, eagerly awaiting the next book in the set while, at the same time, hoping the book they’re reading won’t end.”
