Only one thing can save them all: for Qualtan to reproduce the quest his uncle and father had undertaken many years ago to defeat Those That Stand in Shadow – to find the Master of the Great Beasts, the Dragon King, and bring him back in time to stop the battle.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This is the big finale to the seven book Forging of a Knight series. I've always had a passion for fantasy, and themes regarding second chances, of redemption, are important to me and resonate throughout the series. Good and evil are not always what they seem, and sometimes what is right and what is wrong can be interpreted differently. Is the hero of this tale truly in the right to risk others for his dream? Are his former allies truly in the right to be driven to take down a friend to their nations, a school of wizards, for fear they have become too powerful and thus too uncontrollable despite their good works? The reader will have to decide…
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Many of the characters developed themselves, in that when I first began writing this series, certain aspects to their personalities grew along with the tales and ended up taking the storylines into areas I hadn't initially considered. Yes, I crafted the typical archetypes – noble naive hero, the cynical street wise companion, the other-worldly demonic foes – the premises were initially there, but they grew and matured as I did, in a sense, such as the main hero having a darker side at times, and the main villain having a caring bond with a character that nurtured and supported him. Finally, some characters that started off as merely background supporting cast members such as the female knight Jesepha, the wizardress Cassandra, a certain unicorn horned, flying cat, and even Death him/herself, developed into larger players of the series, writing their own stories themselves.
