The Crimson Claymore by Craig A. Price Jr.

Synopsis:

 

The brave warrior Searon is haunted by the deaths of his wife and children at the hands of the savage reptilian draeyks, who are on a bloodthirsty rampage. He walks the land of Calthoria alone and thirsty for vengeance. He hunts the creatures down one by one, showing no mercy.

But Searon is a one-man army—and no match for the legions of murderous draeyks. Lucky for him, the powerful wizard Karceoles finds him during his travels and enlists Searon in this coming war. Karceoles believes Searon can unite the races to defeat the draeyks once and for all.
Searon discovers he can do more damage with Karceoles and a band of warriors they find along the way. But as the war rages in earnest, Searon must make a choice: Is it more important to destroy the draeyks at all costs, or will his quest for vengeance endanger the lives of his new brothers and sisters at arms?

Tales from Our Write Side Anthology

Synopsis:

Tales from Our Write Side is a collection of stories as mischmasched as the contest we ran for our summer literary journal. Not all is built around Lewis Carroll and Shakespeare, however. Some authors dive head first into the darker side with stories that will thrill you, chill you, and make you look over your shoulder.

 

Whether it’s tales of fantasy, cries in the dark, or romantic adventures, experience the talent as diverse as the 17 writers showcased in this delightful collection of stories, poetry, and even a Shakespearean play.

 

Featuring stories by Stephanie Ayers, Tara Roberts, AM Rycroft, EC Jarvis, AL Mabry, Wendy Strain, Elizabeth Abel, JK Allen, Stacy Overby, Lorah Jaiyn, Emma T. Gitani, Katheryn J. Avila, Eric Keizer, and David Wiley. Includes a Shakespearean play by Nancy E. Miller and poetry by RG Westerman and Mandy Melanson.
