How can one man succeed where an entire army has failed?

Amarantis, a powerful Fire Mage, searches the battlefield, seeking his next victim.

Giselle refuses to give in to defeat. Instead, she demands the surrender of her enemy, even in the face of imminent death.

Cyric is not looking for a fight, wishing only to help those injured. All that changes when he sees the life-and-death struggle unfolding before him.

Now, with nothing left in their arsenal, magic once again threatens them with its fiery fury. In a flash of inspiration, Cyric attempts to save Giselle, but is it enough to turn the tide of battle in their favour?

Has Amarantis met his match when he crosses the path of Brother Cyric? Find out in Paul J Bennett's Into the Maelstrom, A Chronicles of Cyric prequel story.

About the Author

Paul J Bennett (b. 1961) emigrated from England to Canada in 1967. His father served in the British Royal Navy, and his mother worked for the BBC in London. He followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1983. He is married to Carol Bennett, and has three daughters who are all creative in their own right.

Paul’s interest in writing started in his teen years when he discovered the roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons (D & D). What attracted him to this new hobby was the creativity it required; the need to create realms, worlds and adventures that pull the gamers into his stories.

In his 30’s, Paul started to dabble in creating his own roleplaying system, using the Peninsular War in Portugal as his backdrop. His regular gaming group were willing victims, er, participants in helping to playtest the new system. A few years later he took his roleplaying system and added additional settings; including Science Fiction, Post-Apocalyptic, World War II, and the all-important Fantasy Realm.

The beginnings of his first book ‘Servant to the Crown’ originated three years ago when he began a new fantasy campaign. For the land of Merceria, he ran his adventures like a TV show; with seasons that each had twelve episodes, and an overarching plot. After the campaign ended, he was inspired to sit down to write his first novel; he knew all the characters, what they had to accomplish, what needed to happen to move the plot along.

Paul has three series on the go with a forth releasing soon, and is looking forward to sharing all the books with his readers over the next few years.
