The Fight for Hope

The Crimson League - Paperback

Not a soul is safe in Herezoth while evil sorcerer, Zalski Forzythe, reigns supreme.


There was a time when the commoners and magicked lived in peace. The Hall of Sorcery hidden high in the mountains was a place of reverence…

Until the vicious sorcerer Hansrelto came to call. His attempted overthrow may have failed, but a terrorizing rampage through the nearby villages did enough damage to mar the peace magicked ones' reputation for generations to come.

Nearly a millennium passed…

Inspired by Hansrelto’s efforts, wicked sorcerer Zalski Forzythe successfully executes a coup and slaughters the royal family, taking over the nation of Herezoth, enslaving the commoners.

The people are burdened with two-thirds taxes, violent terror and forced allegiance. The crushing boot on the neck seems relentless.

But there is hope…


A team of rebels known as The Crimson League leads the charge toward freedom.

And legend has it, the Marked One will rise up to end the dystopian nightmare.

Through sword and sorcery, the forces of good and evil match off in The Herezoth Trilogy’s first installment, The Crimson League: The Fight for Hope!

Will the Marked One save the people of Herezoth from Zalski … or take his place?

Find out in The Crimson League: The Fight for Hope, Book One in The Herezoth Trilogy.
