I’m delighted to present to you Halitor the Hero, a new book by Rebecca M Douglass, now available to pre-order from Amazon, and due out at the end of November.

A Fair Maiden who breaks all the rules.

A would-be Hero who fails by the book.

It’ll be a fantasy adventure like you never saw…

If they can survive past breakfast!

Halitor has failed at every apprenticeship under the Ice Castle. He figures it’s his last chance when his parents foist him on Bovrell the Bold as an apprentice Hero, and he pores eagerly over the Hero’s Guide to Battles, Rescues and the Slaying of Monsters. But Halitor infuriates his master when he drops his sword, and he gets hopelessly rattled around Fair Maidens. When his master abandons him at an inn in Loria, Halitor is ready to give up and just be a kitchen boy. But Melly, the young kitchen wench, has other ideas. She wants to go find her father, and soon the two are battling monsters and worse on a wild journey to her home. Before they are done, Halitor has learned more than just how to be a Hero.

Available now for pre-order from Amazon.com!

Many thanks to Danielle English for the beautiful cover art, as always!
