The Shield of Daqan: A Descent: Journeys in the Dark Novel Kindle Edition
The once-glorious Barony of Kell is a ruin of its former self, assailed by banditry and famine; its noble Baron Frederic is caught between saving his people and defending his borders. Yet worse is to come… for a new Darkness is rising. Sadistic warrior-priestess, Ne’Krul, spying an opportunity to wreak bloody vengeance on behalf of her demonic masters, leads her Uthuk warband into a brutal invasion. Kell’s only hope lies in holy warrior, Andira Runehand, and legendary hero, Trenloe the Strong, both drawn to Kell to defeat an alliance of evil unprecedented in Terrinoth. They must not fail.
"The Shield of Daqan is yet another great example of a Guymer story, which means that it's fun, that's it's exciting, that it has characters with personality, that it moves rapidly - taking you to interesting places to see interesting things... Maybe this says something more about me than it does anything else, but I can't remember the last time I read a book with such legitimately heroic heroes. It's something I didn't know I was missing, but I was thrilled." (The Mortal Realms )
"An all-round winner! A Great cast of unconventional characters driving a fast-paced plot of heroes vs villains. Beautifully described in both world and character actions." (Eternal Bookcase )
"It's fun, it's exciting, it's literally dripping with personality, and what’s more, you need absolutely zero knowledge of the setting. This is a perfect franchise genre novel in my opinion." (Big Geordie Geek )

The book has a slow start to the tale, as it draws upon 4 main character / character groups and weaves them into one overall story. Don't let this put you off because the ending to the story is both epic, and heartbreaking at the same time.
One of the strengths of the novel is the characterisation, making you really care about what happens to each and every person to whom you're introduced. I particularly enjoyed the old soldier Kurt and his story as it gave a human touch to the backdrop of the epic heros and their action.
