IT'S OFFICIAL! "SHIP OF THE DEAD" IS LAUNCHED AND IN STORES!




"RuneWarriors: Ship of the Dead" -- Book 3 of the RuneWarriors Trilogy -- is now available at your local bookstore or online retailer. The final chapter of the RuneWarriors Saga, Ship of the Dead takes Dane and his rowdy bunch of Norseboys on another rollicking adventure, this time to the very Underworld itself.

The story? With his true love Astrid seemingly lost to him forever in service as a Valkyrie, the despairing Dane learns it’s possible to reunite with her. All he has to do is track down and kill his nemesis, Thidrek the Terrifying, who is leading an army of the undead and threatening to unleash the dark forces of Hell itself upon the world. No biggie.


Plus, we're getting some very nice reviews!

FROM 'KIRKUS REVIEWS'

". . . Dane and his boon companions set off in their usual hilarious and quarrelsome manner to save the world. The plot and subplots are handled with masterly finesse: Action and suspense are nonstop.... Established fans will devour this excellent series finish."

FROM 'THE HORN BOOK' (on Book 2):

“Rip-roaring adventure.... at once funny and thrilling. An excellent next step for fans of Percy Jackson.” 


FROM 'BLOOMSBURY REVIEW' 

"Classic rite-of-passage storytelling. This rigorous, vigorous modern telling of ancient adventure, complete with body-odor, belches and well-timed flatulence, barrels along with a salty grace which makes the reader glad to know it's only the first of a planned trilogy. RuneWarriors ruggedly Nordic mythscape will send shivers of anticipation down even the most jaded middle-school spine."
