Gold Throne in ShadowBook - 2015
"Christopher, raised from the dead and promoted to a moderate rank, takes command of the army regiment he trained and equipped. Sent south to an allegedly easy posting, he finds himself in the way of several thousand rabid dog-men. Guns and fortifications turn back the horde, but Christopher has other problems that cannot be solved with mere firepower- a wicked assassin; hostile clergymen; dubious allies including a bard, Lalania, with a connection to a mysterious group of scholars; and worst of all his own impolitic tongue. But all of these pale into mere distractions once he discovers the true enemy- an invisible, mind-eating horror who plays the kingdom like a puppet-master s stage. Lalania claims she can help but will it be enough? Story Locale- The World of Prime, a brutal fantasy world where magical healing and resurrection exists for the upper class but the average foot soldier is viewed as cannon fodder. Series Overview- A contemporary man from Earth will overthrow the entire social and political system of a fantasy world if that s what it takes to return to his wife."
