SOME CHOICES CAN NEVER BE UNDONE. The Hundred, once ruled by a tainted religion and demon court, is now a place of peace and prosperity. The Black Wolves, once the king's most trusted guard, are disbanded and shamed with treason. Their captain, Kellas, finds himself standing at a crossroads where he must decide whom to serve and whom to betray. Faithful to the king's memory but shut out from his legacy, Lady Dannarah fights for the rank she was denied, while three young outcasts leave their homes to find their own destiny. As broken alliances are guardedly rekindled and old friendships put to the test, the Hundred's past is called into question - and its very future is put at stake.
Unshackled Destiny is the Prequel to The Wolves of Trisidian Trilogy book series. It portrays the same characters and themes described in this epic medieval fantasy, but at a younger age. The tale begins with remarkable events in the life of Geoffrey Talbot when he was a small peasant lad living in the tiny Village of Medina. Cast into a world terrorized by the evil Lord Draegan Randall of Trisidian, Geoffrey's small, defenseless village is rampaged by Randall's Army of Dark Riders and Black War Wolves. As a result of their vicious attack upon the citizens of Medina, Geoffrey's family life and the world as he knows it is turned upside down. Geoffrey experiences the dire tragedy of becoming an orphan, being kidnapped as a slave, and crossing the threshold of unfamiliar surroundings into the Dark Kingdom of Trisidian. Unshackled Destiny is a stirring drama of test and trial, faith and hope, and the resulting growth and transformation of a young lad who perseveres against impossible odds.
The stakes are raised in this dramatic, medieval tale as the spell of the deathless Curse of Ulrik hovers over the region in the troubled, mystical Land of Jandor. Castle Trisidian's supernatural host of demonic, bloodthirsty Black War Wolves continues to roam, terrorize, and inflict death upon the innocent citizens of Jandor. Like troops of ghosts driven by the darkest wind, the Black Wolves of Trisidian creep their way through the villages from cottage to cottage, striking at Jandor's citizens like an army of vipers from the Underworld. Harboring the weak cry of unassisted woe, the heart of Jandor's people has become faint like the falling dew. Sir Geoffrey Talbot, Knight of Stonehaven, makes a pledge to put an end to these wicked creatures and their bloodthirsty attacks upon his people. Will Geoffrey's life and the people of his homeland ever be filled with peace and hope for the future, or will Ulrik's Curse of the Black Wolves of Trisidian destroy them all?
