About D.P. Prior

Internationally bestselling and award winning author D.P. Prior excels in fast-paced, high stakes epic fantasy adventure stories in which good ultimately triumphs, but always at a cost.

Taking familiar fantasy tropes as a point of departure, Prior expands upon them to explore friendship, betrayal, loyalty and heroism in worlds where evil is an ever-present reality, magic is both a curse and a blessing, and characters are tempered in battle.

"This is a world full of magic and fantasy, hyper-religiosity and backwardness, evil and brutality, loyalty and treachery, and unflinching heroism in the form of the extraordinary hero, Deacon Shader, a ferocious warrior forced to be a man of religion because of circumstances, gruff, stiff, unfriendly – yet noble, loyal and kind." -- Ranger
