The Stonegate Sword



Can one man shape the future of a continent?

A global plague has resulted in the collapse of civilization and society has reverted to living in medieval times, where technology is a thing of folklore. Grass grows in the streets and rusted hulks are all that remain of the Old Empire’s machines. Now, the Prophet's armies are coming, filled with hatred and fortified with rediscovered weapons capable of mass destruction. The free towns of the rugged mountains and plains are in the path of his conquest and must prepare for the worst.

Amid these rumors of war, Donald of Fisher, a lore-man by trade, survives an attack from the Raiders and finds shelter in Stonegate; an eastern walled city in what was once North America. His skills are pushed to the limit as he trains for battle with the cavalry, but he progresses swiftly up the military ranks. Meanwhile, he has fallen in love with one of Stonegate’s citizens, a rare beauty named Rachel. After his error in judgment when the city is ambushed, Donald is devastated when he fails to save Rachel’s family and they are slaughtered. Rachel survives, but he loses her when she is captured by the Raiders.

Now he must prepare for the greatest challenge of his life. Donald heads into a vast wilderness teeming with ruthless warriors to search for the woman he loves and, not only must he battle the enemy, he must overcome a war raging within. His fear of losing Rachel and the nightmare of making a similar mistake in battle again haunts him. Even if he succeeds, will she ever find it in her heart to forgive him? He needs to muster the courage of again leading his men against the Raiders. Will Donald live up to an ancient prophecy and protect his people, or will his personal struggles cause his downfall?

Danger, love, war and redemption abound in the exciting world of The Stonegate Sword, an eloquent portrayal of turmoil, consequences, romance, courage, bravery and suspense by award-winning finalist Harry James Fox, author of Cross Currents.
