Product Description

Product Description


In a world where magic corrupts and kingdoms constantly war, the power that drives the world stirs. It whispers promises of greatness in the heads of the men and women that wield it. Now, it has spoken to the mind of a king.
Knight Commander Stefan Dorn, leader of the Unvanquished, has known only war, death and, victory. All in the name of his loyalty to King Nerian the Lightbearer, a man he idolized.

Until now.

Everything he thought he knew about the King, his people, and his world is coming to an end. At a time when there should be peace, he's once again called to war.
Torn between shocking changes at home, his family, loyalty to his men and his King, Stefan wishes only to enjoy life away from the battlefield. But with the new campaign comes a rabid, unforgiving enemy and a potential cataclysm.

Follow him as he fights to save his family, his people, his honor, and his birthright from the grips of the shade. Can he save them all? If not, which will he choose, which will he lose?


(Although the Shadowbearer could be read first as a standalone, it is recommended to read this after reading Etchings of Power.)

About the Author

Terry grew up on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbados. He always had a love of writing for as long as he can remember. Somehow, he grew to love fantasy more than any other although his early days were spent reading his father's books from Louis L'amour's westerns to Don Pendleton's Executioner series. When Terry moved to New York in 1986 to live with his mother, his love for books developed into him reading and loving fantasy authors such as Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher, Terry Goodkind , Brandon Sanderson, George RR Martin, Brian Lumley, Laura K Hamilton and quite a few others. Terry began building the world for what is now called the Aegis of the Gods series in 2001. At first, it was just a hobby because of his love for fantasy and the written word. Slowly, it became a part of his life. Finally, in 2010, Terry decided to sit down and pen the first book based in his world. When he isn't writing, Terry enjoys reading, movies, gaming (especially MMORPGS), working out, watching sports, and playing with his beautiful daughter Kai.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality work from a talented author 19 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Quite simply excellent.

For those who are waiting for the follow-up to Terry C Simpson's Etchings of Power, the first in his Aegis of the Gods series, The Shadowbearer isn't it. Well, not exactly, but as a prequel it sits in the same world and it will more than satisfy anyone who hungers for more of Simpson's writing.

In Etchings of Power, the author set some high standards -- in the quality of the writing, the storytelling, and in the presentation of the ebook. Well, The Shadowbearer shows no relaxation of those very high standards.

The novel achieves a couple of neat tricks: firstly, it sets the scene for the Aegis of the Gods series; secondly, it piles on the mystery and the intrigue for the series to come. In either aspect, it takes the reader deeper into the peoples and cultures of Ostania and Denestia, expands on the histories and struggles of the kingdoms and empires, and enhances the world the author has so carefully crafted.

Politics and intrigue, warfare and treachery, heroic deeds and conflicted loyalties, with larger-than-life characters who are nevertheless all to human in their doubts, fears and frailties, the story will pull you into its flow from the first page.

The novel focuses of the exploits of Stefan Dorn -- Knight Commander in the service of King Nerian -- a hero to his people who must face some severe tests, both personal and political, in the service of his people and his king.

With dark times looming, the choices Dorn makes will have repercusions far and wide, in ways that this reviewer cannot say, so as to ensure no hint of spoilers.

Suffice to say, Simpson has produced a great piece of work that is not to be missed.

Mark Cantrell,
Author of CITIZEN ZERO

The Shadowbearer: Prequel (The Aegis of Gods)

Thursday, June 7, 2012

Knight Commander Stefan Dorn, leader of the Unvanquished, has known only war, death and, victory. All in the name of his loyalty to King Nerian the Lightbearer, a man he idolized. Until now.

Everything he thought he knew about the King, his people, and his world is coming to an end. At a time when there should be peace, he's once again called to war.

Torn between shocking changes at home, his family, loyalty to his men and his King, Stefan wishes only to enjoy life away from the battlefield. But with the new campaign comes a rabid, unforgiving enemy and a potential cataclysm.
Follow him as he fights to save his family, his people, his honor, and his birthright from the grips of the shade. Can he save them all? If not, which will he choose, which will he lose?

The Shadowbearer is a rousing and engaging prequel to Etchings of Power and a worthy addition to the Aegis of the Gods series.

The Shadowbearer is the second book in the Aegis of Gods Series by T. C. Simpson. The book centres on Stefan Dorn, a Knight Commander in the Seti and Leader of the army.

Having read Etchings of Power and knowing T. C. Simpsons work my standards were set pretty high. I am very pleased to say those standards were met and pushed even further.

The book opens straight into the action, with our Protagonist, Stefan, at a battle to conquer opposing nations to bring them into the Setian Empire. After the battle we learn that Stefan is also known as Stefan the Steadfast and that he commands an army known as The Unvanquished.

A good easy read that delivers a great story. The pace is perfect but I would of liked to get to know more of the characters, unless they will be featuring more in the next book?
The story is a good one and I shall be buying the next one today!

Found it by accident and couldn't put it down. Superb and captivating story by an author whose imagination is as good as Anne McCaffrey.
