Book Description

For fans of Robert E. Howard, David Gemmell, and Raymond E. Feist, here is a new story of sword and sorcery.

Banished for fifteen years, the wandering knight Mazael Cravenlock returns home at last to the Grim Marches, only to find war and chaos. His brother plans a foolish and doomed rebellion. His sister hopes to wed a brutal and cruel knight. The whispers speak of living corpses that stalk the night, of demons that lurk in darkness, and a sinister snake-cult that waits in the shadows.

Yet Mazael's darkest enemy waits elsewhere.

Within his own tainted soul...

First published in 2005 from Gale/Five Star, now updated and revised in a new electronic edition.

PRAISE FOR DEMONSOULED:

“…action-packed, fast-moving tale…a solid debut novel…”
-Fantasy Book Spot

“a gripping account of one man’s battle against both inner and external demons, and I would recommend it to anyone who desires an action-packed story riddled with twists . . . ”
-Sffworld.com

“Jonathan Moeller has written an epic fantasy in its classic form that all lovers of fantasy will embrace.”
-Love Romances

“Jonathan Moeller will definitely capture the attention of many with DEMONSOULED, a suspenseful fantasy novel that is not to be missed.”
-Romance Reviews Today

“Here’s a fantasy adventure with plenty of thrills and chills. After a gap of many years, a hardy warrior and his companions return to their homeland. One of them discovers that his sister has been kidnapped and that his brother is plotting an ill advised rebellion against a less than sterling local ruler. Throw in some malevolent magic including a small army of reanimated corpses, a secretive plot, lots of derring do, a sinister mystery, and a magical assault that threatens to turn our hero into an instrument of evil. Exciting, occasionally surprising, with readable prose and a diverse set of characters. What more could you ask?”
-Don D’ammassa

    4.0 out of 5 stars Rough edged but better than most 25 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed this read a lot, mostly because it was right up my street. Finally, a book NOT about a kid destined to be a great magician half-a-million pages later!

    While Demonsouled is a fairly straightforward heroic fantasy adventure, with only a few surprises--could be a D&D companion novel in content and quality--it still has a lot to recommend it over some of the usual dross (including some published dross).

    The author keeps the adventure moving--though at times the twists in the plot seem a little unnecessary--and builds the suspense nicely. The world is believable medieval without being over-the-top or bland: clearly the author has done some reading outside the D&D sourcebook. The 'small scale' of the plot suited me perfectly, though the series may get grander as it goes on. The only thing I thought really let it down was an incongrously facile and cliched magic system and wizard.

    There are a few typos and the prose is a bit rough, but with a bit of polishing it would outshine some well-known names (to my taste anyway). Gemmell and Feist are fair enough comparisons, but it really reminded me of Glen Cook's early standalone, Swordbearer. I may well read the next one...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Damn good story 11 Jun. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A good "heroic" fantasy story with interesting characters,a decent plot.My favoured authors in this genre tend to be David Gemmell,david eddings,raymond feist(and some simon r green).If you also like those authors this one is worth a read(I was so impressed that I've downloaded his other novels).For the money it's a cracking read and deserves a wider readership.I found only a couple of minor typos reading the book which do nothing to spoil it.Will be left on my kindle for a second read.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, thoroughly entertaining 12 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I found this book gritty and grounded, which is a refreshing change from pretty elves holding hands and dancing around a magical fire at the base of a magical tree in a magical forest.

    I can definitely see the influence that David Gemmell played in this author's development, and that's what I like about the story, I can see a similar style to Gemmell's. I would have given 5 stars, however the book requires a thorough edit, which seemed to have been done up until almost the half way mark and then the grammatical errors started, so I'm not sure what happened there. However, for me anyway, the errors did not detract from the story. One other thing I found was that the characters tend to do a lot of 'snorting' (particularly the main character).

    However, the characters are well developed and I cared for most of them, cardboard cutouts they are certainly not.

    I highly recommend this gritty, thoroughly entertaining book, highly recommended!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Demonsouled 28 May 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book is listed as part of a trilogy but as far as I can see on Amazon, there are now 5 books listed as part of the "Demonsouled" series. The author has been compared to Raymond E Feist, David Gemmel etc - as for me, I can see similarities but I don't know if I would compare them.

    The plot and storyline take you right into the action from page 1 and is fairly well paced throughout. However, the main character didn't really do it for me. Although he showed emotion and depth of character, there was something lacking for me. He also managed to annoy me everytime that he thought that he could kill this person in so many ways.

    The storyline is interesting, with myth, magic, zuwembies (zombies), snake cult, parent pressure. This is a very good fantasy novel.

    4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great story with great ideas 22 Mar. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a great story with great ideas, the plot keeps moving forward without the dry "filler" in the middle. There are quite a few unexpected twists and turns. The only thing I did not like was the silly errors e.g. "Sir Gerald's pommel flashing in the morning SON" "Further down the battlements Mazael SAW SEE Sir Nathan" "Mazael could SAW figures waiting at the top of the hill" "His hand curled around his sword hilt, and LEANED SHE and kissed him" "Romaria shoved an arrow into a torch, the head TRACKING flame" These are just a few, there are many, many more. Why don't authors read their work and get some friends to read it too as it does spoil what is in essence a great book. Without the errors I would have given it 5 stars.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Sword, sorcery and unoriginal 26 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    From the number of books that Mr Moeller has written I was expecting a bit more. Unfortunately this story is fairly generic. There is no real expectation that the hero will fail, the relationships between the characters are very sketchy and there is no real immersion into the world. Also in the kindle version there are a number of editing errors, which always says sloppiness to me. I started out with higher expectations than the book delivered. Mind you I always have a problem when things are fated, seers have told characters what will happen and gods intervene in the story. All of these were unnecessary and just detracted from the book rather than making it a believable world. I have a couple more books of this author to read, I can only hope they are better.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A good light read... 30 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    An interesting light read. For those of you who like a book to get straight to the point whilst on a journey, then this is the book for you. A perfect companion for a short journey, not too difficult to pick up when rudely interrupted by many annoying passengers.

    The book itself is well written and follows a set path through many a twist and turn. The characters are managed well and developed relationships ensure a quality finish.

    This first book in the series has set the scene well. However, I would have liked to have seen a more detailed description of the feelings and surroundings for each scene. The author could develop the settings more fully.

    All in all a good, light read.
