The Sorcerer’s Skull

“Robert E. Vardeman has created a pair of heroes – and a villain of equal calibre – guaranteed to live in the reader’s mind long after the last page has been read.” – George Proctor

When the Wheel turns, nobody knows where the traveller will stop…

Darel-elLan-Martak has walked the Cenotaph Road – and in the blink of an eye, he was forced to exchange everything he thought he knew for his new reality.

A new life, and a new world.

He and his companion Krek, a gigantic tarantula, must walk the path that has been laid out for them. But when they encounter the evil wizard Claybore, now only a mere skull, things quickly go from bad to worse.

When they arrive in this new land, Lan and his companion realize that their friend Inyx is missing… trapped along Cenotaph Road.

In a race against time, Lan and Krek must journey up Mount Tartanius, a huge mirrored mountain, if they hope to retrieve an ancient artifact that control access to all the portals along the Road.

But if Claybore reaches it first, then they will be stranded in this world forever…

The Sorcerer’s Skull is a gripping fantasy adventure that you won’t want to put down.

Cenotaph Road

“Robert E. Vardeman has created a pair of heroes – and a villain of equal calibre – guaranteed to live in the reader’s mind long after the last page has been read.” – George Proctor

His path is set, but it could all end in darkness…

After a good night goes badly wrong, Dar-elLan-Martak finds himself on the run for a murder he didn’t commit.

With the viscious and much-hated grey soldiers fast on his toes, Lan must find a way to escape – and Cenotaph Road may just be the answer to that.

Legend has it that if you lie down in the crypt of a long-dead hero, when the moon is full and the clock strikes midnight, you will be transported … elsewhere.

But Lan soon discovers that one cannot escape ones problems so easily.

Hoping for a safe haven, he finds only a stronger desire for vengeance on the other side.

With an arachnid companion at his side and a treacherous journey ahead of him, Lan must stay hidden from the grey soliders that litter every world, all whilst seeking vengeance for the death of his love.

Cenotaph Road is an action-packed sci fi-fantasy fusion novel, the first in the Cenotaph Road series.
