Malfus: Necromancer Unchained will be released on June 28th as a hardcopy, ebook, as well as audiobook in partnership with Tantor Audio.
Malfus’s past has finally caught up with him. He’s a renegade, an outlaw, a necromancer. Now he’s a prisoner.
He’s been captured by Inquisitor Deza, to be tried, tortured, and executed for his crimes. But they’re ambushed by half-hyena marauders, forcing them to take refuge with a heavily wounded battalion already under siege by the monsters.
Deza only cares about his mission. But another assault by the marauders would be a death sentence for the battalion. The only option remaining is to free Malfus and to raise an army of the dead.
But will the dead be enough to save the living?
Find out in Malfus: Necromancer Unchained, a grimdark fantasy novel set in a world filled with undead, zealous inquisitors, and ancient evil.

Malfus is a rogue necromancer with nothing to his name except his spellbook.
Forced to leave his old life behind, he finds himself starving and alone in a strange land.
His luck turns a corner when he stumbles across a body-strewn battlefield—but buzzards and crows aren’t the only creatures interested in his find.
As night falls and the mists grow, will his necromancy be enough to face what waits for him in the dark?
This is a prequel short story, introducing the grimdark fantasy novel Malfus: Necromancer Unchained. You can enjoy this story by itself; it is not necessary reading for the novel.
The book also includes a world-map as well as two full-color illustrations of scenes from the upcoming novel, drawn by artist Dejan Delic.
