About Martyn Stanley

Martyn Stanley is the author of 'The Deathsworn Arc' a epic fantasy adventures series dragons. He lives near the Staffordshire/Cheshire border in England, with his long suffering wife and two small children.

Martyn has always enjoyed epic fantasy novels and began reading them at a young age, starting with 'The Hobbit', ending with 'The Inheritance Cycle' and including everything in between.

His 'Deathsworn Arc' is more than a hack and slash, swords and sorcery series. It examines, faith, companionship, morality, pragmatism and more. If the characters of 'The Deathsworn Arc' come across as strange, it's partly because they're intended to. It isn't a series which will be dragged out indefinitely, it has a beginning, a middle and a definite end.

He already has the plot for his second series forming in his head.

To write is to create characters and to have freedom for them to succeed or fail and to travel wherever you want them to, and meet who ever you want them to meet.

He sincerely hopes you enjoy reading his epic fantasy adventure series 'The Deathsworn Arc' as much as he enjoyed writing it.

If you enjoyed my free, first book, why not buy me a coffee? -

The Verkreath Horror by Martyn Stanley is the second book in the Deathsworn Arc series. After defeating the Noble Dragon and losing two of their comrades, the remaining crew start their journey back to the empress to receive their pay for a deed well done, but run into unfortunate circumstances that lead them running for their lives underground.

This story was a bit slower paced as we got to know the characters a little better. The characters are a lively crew and it was interesting getting to know them more. I felt this book was better edited than the first, which made it more enjoyable than the first.

I was given this by the author for my honest opinion and review. After I read The Last Dragonslayer I was worried a little about reading the next book. Saul and what is left of his comrades are head back to see Empress Jade to get his reward. They are stopped by a plague infected city. Forced underground into tunnels with Rat people. It is a lot dark and a bit gruesome. I do like that Vashni is opening up a bit more in this book I like that she is almost calling them friends...Oh I found about the dragon cult that is after them. I love the description in this book. IT was all senses on deck. It is well worth the read.

I was asked to read this book for an honest review, so this is what I think...

The characters in this fantasy tale are what make it an excellent read, that and the philosophical debate about 'the truth' (I don't give spoilers).

Carrying on from book one, the group of travellers battle various enemies as they continue their quest, but it is the character development and relationships that are most interesting...although Vashni is my favourite because of who she is, her talents, her bravery and her determination not to be what others expect.

There are secrets revealed and, I expect, more to come as the adventure continues, however, it will be fascinating to see the plot development and how the questions are answered.

Well-written and entertaining.
