A spirited blacksmith's daughter accused of using the dark and terrifying sleth magic.
The young man who hunts her.
And the ferocious monster who only wants to be free.
Trapped in a web of lies and ancient secrets, of right becoming wrong, the three must struggle not only against each other, but also a being of irresistable powers, a creature who is gathering her servants to usher in the impending human harvest.
If the three succeed, they save those they love most. If they fail, the clans of the lands fall with them.
Thus begins the towering fantasy series that introduces an elaborate new world, a multifaceted system of magic, and a cast of compelling characters and creatures.

~ LARRY CORRIEA, New York Times best-selling author

"Thoroughly engrossing from the first page to the last!"
~ DAVID FARLAND, New York Times best-selling author of Runelords and Ravenspell series
"I will say, in utter candor, that Servant is a work that truly stands out from other fantasy books on the market. What makes this book work so well is that it's a story about family first, and a fantasy adventure second."
~ ORSON SCOTT CARD'S INTERGALACTIC MEDICINE SHOW
"Like another reviewer, I picked up this book with reluctance, but by the third chapter I found myself completely under its spell."
~ CACHE MAGAZINE
"There are moments of cliffhanger suspense and scenes of tender compassion. Terrible things happen, but powerful good rises to meet the challenge, though this is no "and they all lived happily ever after" kind of story. Face it, a fantasy novel that pulled me in so thoroughly, has to be good."
~ JENNIE HANSEN, Meridian Magazine columnist
