About The Book
"Readers who love medieval-esque fantasy will delight in this rousing tale of rebellion.” — Publishers Weekly starred review of Book 1 in the series
The Heron Kings have been betrayed. A century after their formation from a gang of desperate peasant insurgents, the shadowy band of forest rangers suffers a rare defeat when a skirmish turns into a bloody ambush. Their shaky truce with the crown is tested as young members Linet and Aerrus work to track down their enemies. When reluctant peacetime soldier Eyvind reveals a conspiracy to welcome the charismatic invader Phynagoras, the trio must convince a weak king and pitifully few allies to stand against the storm.
Their only hope lies in the forgotten tactics of their own guerrilla past, and a terrifying new alchemical weapon the likes of which the world had never imagined. The only question is which side will be destroyed by it first...

Raves and Reviews
Praise for The Heron Kings, book 1 in the series:
“Lewis’s excellent debut introduces a band of well-drawn outlaws who don’t care who wins the civil war that’s ravaging their land, just so long as it ends [...] The central trio are marvelously realized, and their developments amid the ongoing horrors are effortlessly convincing. Readers who love medieval-esque fantasy will delight in this rousing tale of rebellion.” — Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“Fast-paced and gripping, The Heron Kings is riveting stuff.” — British Fantasy Society
"There’s a Robin Hood feel to Lewis’ debut, as average citizens rise up against the warmongering upper class with justified anger [...] Readers will root for the [characters].” — ALA Booklist
“A promising debut from Eric Lewis. The Heron Kings is full of consistent characters that are inspiring and tough. Gruesome at times, this shows the true savagery of war and has enough action and intrigue to keep you on your toes.” — GrimDark Magazine
"This pulse-pounding adventure is sure to please."
– Publishers Weekly
