Bastard Giveaway: The Wardstone epic fantasy novels by M. R. Mathias

Great giveaway from indie author M. R. Mathias for 3 signed copies of epic fantasy novel The Sword and the Dragon, and one of those winners will also be taking a signed copy of Kings, Queens, Heroes & Fools. They're the first two books in The Wardstone Trilogy which I've seen getting quite a bit of praise, here's a review of the first book at Fantasy Book Critic. Also you can find an extensive sample here.
When the Royal Wizard of Westland poisons the king so that his puppet prince can take the throne and start a continental war, a young squire is forced to run for his life carrying the powerful sword that his dying monarch burdened him with from the death bed.
Two brothers find a magic ring and start on paths to becoming the most powerful sort of enemies, while an evil young sorceress unwillingly falls in love with one of them when he agrees to help her steal a dragon's egg for her father. Her father just happens to be the Royal Wizard, and despite his daughter's feelings, he would love nothing more than to sacrifice the boy!
All of these characters, along with the Wolf King of Wildermont, the Lion Lord of Westland, and a magical hawk named Talon, are on a collision course toward Willa the Witch Queen's palace in the distant kingdom of Highwander. There the very bedrock is formed of the powerful magical substance called Wardstone.
Who are the heroes? And will they get there before the Royal Wizard and his evil hordes do?

  6. Anyone hear about The Crystal Tear. There's a buzz on the other blogs about it, supposed to be something new, but there isn't very much information. Why's it being kept so secret? I spoke to woman, Lisa, who got an advanced copy and said it was awesome, but can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know anything about this?

  7. I heard the Crystal Tear was for five and six year olds.
