The Order of the Silver Sword Begins With

The Sword and The Spark

In this Shakespeare-inspired tale of betrayal and murder, one man’s heroic quest becomes a battle for the soul of an empire—and his own. Mace Ealdor is a revered member of the Order of the Silver Sword, mortals who possess the Spark of the Celestials. For centuries, the Silver Swords have been the guardians of the empire of Danim, but when Mace embarks on a quest to right the wrongs of the monarchy amid a decades-long civil war, his noble ambitions soon threaten everything he seeks to protect. Friends become enemies, heroes become villains, and the only path to salvation rests in the will of the Stars themselves.


While intended for more mature readers due to its violence, language, and adult situations, it also contains classic elements of romance and adventure while delving deeply into the complexities of love and family.

CW/TW: Graphic violence, murder (including patricide, regicide, attempted infanticide, and mentions of fratricide and suicide), loss of child, loss of parent, brief sexual situations, profanity, mentions of drug abuse, and emotional abuse.
