Forging of a Knight is an ongoing epic fantasy series. A battle against the forces of Those That Stand in Shadow brings an end to an old hero and a beginning for a new one. Good and evil are not always what they seem. Close friends can be deadly enemies, and sometimes loyalty can be rewarded with treachery. Will a young hero's unexpected friendship with a half-orcne thief support his chance for knighthood, or ruin it altogether?
