Barnes and Noble (Nook)
He thought he was a hero.
She showed him the truth.
Now he'll do anything to stop the man who made him a monster.
For twenty years Jaska Bavadi has faithfully served the Palymfar Order and its Grandmaster, the powerful wizard Salahn, but an encounter with Zyrella Anthari, last high priestess of the White Tigress, shatters the spell that chained Jaska’s mind.
Now faced with the horrors he unknowingly committed against people he swore to protect, Jaska must put Salahn's reign of cruelty to an end. Together, he and Zyrella race to save the White Tigress and stop Salahn from opening the Gates of the Underworld. An army of palymfar warriors stands in their way, but the dangerous secrets that cloud their destinies threaten to doom them first.
In the tradition of Michael Moorcock, David Gemmell, and Glen Cook, Wrath of the White Tigress delivers a thrilling tale sword & sorcery fans will love.
What they're saying about it:
"The main characters were delicious and believable, I genuinely cared about the love triangle.” — S. Davies
“Drawing from a swords and sorcery tradition that includes Elizabeth Moon's The Deed of Paksenarrion, Hayden's swash-buckling, spell-slinging characters battle dark demons in the aftermath of the hero's tragic fall.” — Elizabeth Campbell "Darkcargo"
"The pace here is swift, full of brutal action, ancient mysteries, well-explained magic, and a bit of sex ... Recommended for any fantasy fan willing to try something new.” — Josh Black
