Everyone knew he was deadly, even in Hassell Point, a city full of outlaws and thieves. It was obvious at a glance, from his low slung knives, to the blood dripping from his knuckles. But the stranger wasn’t looking for trouble, he wanted a fresh start and Lorik was determined to give him one.
Lorik is a teamster, delivering cargo throughout the kingdom of Ortis from his home deep in the marshlands where he has lived his whole life. As rumors of magic and dragons in the northern kingdom of Yelsia cause the King to march to war with his army, lawless men seize the opportunity to take what they can by force. It could be the perfect time for Lorik to partner with the newcomer named Stone, but the young warrior brings problems of his own that could place Lorik and the people he cares about in even more danger.
Set in the world first introduced in the best selling Five Kingdoms series, the Lorik trilogy introduces new characters who will impact the destiny of this fabled land. Lorik is the story of a man whose world is suddenly turned upside down. His concern for a friend earns him an enemy, his actions make him a hero, but his honor could cost him his life.

“He felt strange. He didn’t open his eyes but he could feel every part of his body, and they were all changing. His muscles, every fiber of them, were growing. Blood ran through his veins in an intoxicating dance. His heart beat so strongly he couldn’t believe it. He could feel it pumping the blood through his body, like a drum beating the cadence of the dance. His bones felt like iron and his mind was light, his thoughts fast and nimble, like a deer dashing through the woods.”
The King of Ortis has marched to war with his entire army, leaving the people of his kingdom unprotected. Into this void comes Lorik, battle axe in hand, leading a small group of volunteers from the southern marshlands. They travel north to help tide the invasion by the Norsik raiders who come to kill, pillage, and take slaves. But it will take more than brute strength and a sound strategy to turn back the massive tribes of raiders, and the danger will threaten not only Lorik but his most dearly loved friends as well. As magic awakens in the Five Kingdoms, Lorik’s world teeters on the brink of disaster and unless Lorik finds his purpose and fulfills his destiny, all will be lost.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose lives are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. – Tecumseh
