"Omigosh! I've just found an author to put on my list of I've got to read everything they ever wrote! The Warden is a gem of the first order. Aelis is my hero."Glen Cook, author of The Black Company, on The Warden series

"These books are addictive and I can’t wait to see what Aelis and the gang get up to next.”—C.L. Clark, author of The Unbroken

Aelis de Lenti, Lone Pine's newly assigned Warden, is in deep trouble. She has just opened the crypts of Mahlgren, releasing an army of the undead into the unprotected backwoods of Ystain.

To protect her village, she must unearth a source of immense Necromantic power at the heart of Mahlgren. The journey will wind through waves of undead, untamed wilderness, and curses far older than anything Aelis has ever encountered. But as strong as Aelis is, this is one quest she cannot face alone.

Along with the brilliant mercenary she's fallen for, her half-orc friend, and a dwarven merchant, Aelis must race the clock to unravel mysteries, slay dread creatures, and stop what she has set in motion before the flames of a bloody war are re-ignited.

Praise For…

“So much fun. Fun of the fourth-order, you might say. These books are addictive and I can’t wait to see what Aelis and the gang get up to next.”—C.L. Clark, author of The Unbroken

"Ford continues to build the characters’ arcs through their journeys, and readers will be clamoring for the final book to see what happens next. . . . The sequel to Ford’s The Warden is a delightful epic fantasy, filled with strong worldbuilding and a great cast of characters."—Library Journal

Praise for The Warden Series
"Omigosh! I've just found an author to put on my list of 'I've got to read everything they ever wrote'! The Warden is a gem of the first order. Aelis is my hero."—Glen Cook, author of The Black Company

“I had an absolute blast and devoured it in a sitting.”—C.L. Clark, author of The Unbroken

"Old-school fun with new-school sensibilities."—Marie Brennan, author of A Natural History of Dragons: a Memoir By Lady Trent

“Dark and delightful . . . A reading experience that captures the best essence of a single-player tabletop RPG romp with a sly and witty gamemaster.”—Elizabeth Bear, Multiple Hugo Award Winner

"Captures an endearing fish out of water vibe in this pleasantly romantic fantasy about the importance of supporting one’s local necromancer. . . . The charming misfit cast is the highlight here. Readers who enjoy the maturing mages and heroes of Robin McKinley and Melissa Caruso will find another youngster on the rise to cheer for in these pages."—Publishers Weekly

"A great first entry in a series, setting up an interesting sword-and-sorcery world whose secondary cast clearly has stories to tell, from retired soldiers turned innkeeping couple Rus and Martin to a pair of dwarves who are bankers turned adventurers. Fans of Brandon Sanderson will enjoy details about the complex magical system. It will be fascinating to see where Aelis, and her world, goes from here."—Booklist

"An appealing new fantasy series filled with adventure, action, and old magic."—Library Journal

"I was hooked. . . . It’s refreshing to read a fantasy adventure with a female main character who feels realistic. . . . I had a lot of fun with The Warden."Geekly Inc

“I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a quick fantasy read that features a strong female protagonist, really cool magic, and some fascinating worldbuilding that transports the reader into a wondrous setting “—Out of This World SFF
