Jason Cullinane’s famous father Karl is thought to have died fighting members of the Slavers Guild, and Jason must now assume the full weight of the Crown – which means continuing the fight against slavery as well as presiding over the kingdom. However, rumors come in that slavers have been found dead with notes pinned to the corpses proclaiming “The Warrior Lives” … Is Karl Cullinane still alive?

Joel Rosenberg (1954-2011) was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and was raised in eastern North Dakota and northern Connecticut. He attended the University of Connecticut, where he met and married Felicia Herman.
Joel's occupations, before settling down to writing full-time, have run the usual gamut, including driving a truck, caring for the institutionalized retarded, bookkeeping, gambling, motel desk-clerking, and a two-week stint of passing himself off as a head chef.
Joel grew up reading Robert A. Heinlein, L. Sprague de Camp, Gordon R. Dickson and Rafael Sabatini, and found himself becoming a writer pretty much as a natural outcome of such early influences. His fantasy series include the New York Times bestselling “Guardians of the Flame” series, “Keepers of the Hidden Ways” series, “D’Shai” novels and two “Mordred’s Heirs” novels. He is survived by his wife Felicia and their daughters Judy and Rachel.
