Series

The Fylking
High fantasy woven with Norse mythology, swords and sorcery, this series tells the exploits of the Fylking, an immortal race of warriors akin to the Otherworld. Lovers of strife, song and steel, their empires span the heavens. To them, war is an art with high stakes, as their ancient, dark and malevolent enemies think nothing of destroying a world to gain even a small advantage. Eons of working the fabric of time and space at interdimensional frequencies have made them gods among mortals -- warriors, royals, seers, lovers, warlocks and mercenaries -- generations upon generations coexisting in uneasy peace with the Gods of War.
