The Game of War

Standalone, full-size prequel to the Gold Medal Winner of the 2021 Readers’ Favorite Award for YA Epic Fantasy. Never meet your heroes—especially if they’re dead. Dantess wants to follow in the footsteps of his dead grandfather—a legendary priest of War—but his father forbids it. In fact, his father’s hatred of War lands him in a cell within the god’s temple. The only way to free him is from the inside, so Dantess must choose: let his father die or defy his upbringing, become a priest, and win his father’s freedom in the temple’s deadly Game of War. Torn between the legacies of his father and grandfather, Dantess finds that both paths hide secrets that threaten to destroy everything he cares about, including his sanity. Percy Jackson enters the Game of Thrones in what reviewers are calling, “one hell of an action-packed thrill ride.” It’s a don’t-miss page-turner full of mysterious magic, crafty competitions, and plenty of pirates! “Riveting and compelling, a must-read for any fan of fantasy literature.” —Barbara Blackburn, Knights of the Dinner Table

Meet J.R.Kearney

I have worked in retail for over twenty years. That’s bad. But I’ve also been writing the Sword Empire Series for fifteen of those years. That’s good. Living in Sydney, Australia for all my life, I began writing the series in 2005 as a series of short stories for my autistic nephew, set in the fictional world of Heldorn, that soon grew into ‘The Sword Empire’ series of today. A lover of music, anything from a Van Halen guitar solo to a Disney showtune, I’m also a big advocate for exercise while also lounging about playing the latest RPG. But mostly books are my passion, growing up watching a lot of bad movies to know what a good story should look like. Regardless of fame or fortune I will write this series purely out of enjoyment, I hope you can enjoy them too.
