By: Colin Darney
Genre: Epic Fantasy

Aeons ago an ancient war ravaged the land, and no one knows why.
The Endless Plains are once again the site of that ancient conflict. Ondilaani tribesmen are raiding throughout the land. Homes have been destroyed, lives lost, and the rumors of war are proving true.
In the outskirts of the kingdom, the troop has saved Resthaven from its destruction. But Tommy’s family must now continue south, for there are other villages, other innocents to save. Other places to make safe around the Serensea.
What’s happened has changed Tommy, reshaping his life into something he never imagined.
And the changes are still taking place.
“Goodbye, Pawdrig Maorilan, last of your line, head of a childless family, and Lord of Redtail Hold.” Alaris’s anger swirled within his eyes.
“You are on your own.”

Meet Colin Darney:
Hello! I was born in 1972 and live on the east coast of the United States with my family. My life has been influenced by many things, but most notably by becoming an Eagle Scout, a veteran, and my career in nursing mostly spent in a level one trauma center. I have an eclectic list of hobbies, including camping, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, amateur blacksmithing, horseback riding, skiing, reading, and both tabletop and online gaming. Though I am an avid reader, I never imagined myself actually writing a novel, and I am both stunned and surprised by what I’ve accomplished. Thank you for taking the time to read my work, and I hope you are entertained by the story I’ve written.

Deception: Wahrheit Book 3 on Kickstarter
WAHRHEIT is a huge, sprawling epic fantasy that features political intrigue, assassinations, mystery, adventure, battles, a little bit of fun, and yes, even dragons. It’s my take on those incredible stories that captured my imagination and took me on a ride I’d never forget. It’s packed full of colorful characters that fans love, faced with incredible adversity that they fight to overcome, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I hope this series goes down as one you remember forever.
The Truth is a weak thing. It has no power. The only power the Truth holds is the power we grant it.
For six hundred years, the kingdom of Wahrheit was ruled by an unbroken line. It rose on a wave of technology and magic and stood alone—a bastion of stability built on pillars of economic and military might. The nation and her people thrived due to the strength of soldiers and the protection of dragons.
But the line has ended—the king is dead.
Noble houses vie to carve out their own domains. Foreign armies march across Wahrheit’s soil for the first time in memory. Without leadership, the king’s army watches helplessly. The fae, a source of enchantment and treachery, work unseen to secure their share of Wahrheit’s blood. And far beyond the kingdom’s borders, a growing threat looms—an empire built to right a bitter wrong.
Only a small band of conspirators stand between the kingdom and chaos: Otto Tilly, captain of the king’s Dragon Knights, the steel fist that shields the weak. Gerhard Fisher, a spy and assassin, who owes more than his life to the former king. Ilse Brinke, the quartermaster, the keeper of the kingdom’s secrets and magic. The wizard, an ancient soul who understands the cost of failure. And by fortune’s curse or fortune’s favor, two orphans from the growing war must carry the kingdom forward. As has always been, the burden of the future lies across the shoulders of the young.
