Today finds me at Bubonicon in Albuquerque, New Mexico where I have a busy day scheduled on panels and in the dealer’s room. If you’re in Albuquerque today, I hope you’ll drop by and say hello. Today also marks the release day of Greg Ballan’s latest novel, Lost Sons: The Battle of Manhattan, which I edited this summer. This is a truly epic novel, featuring Greg’s character Duncan Kord. Here’s what the book is about:
Clash of the Titans!
Duncan Kord has traveled the world for many lifetimes. The thousand-year-old Viking warrior was given immortality by an advanced race of beings who literally snatched him from the brink of death on a battlefield in Norway centuries ago. Not only did they save him, they infused his body and mind with the essence of a powerful dragon. Despite his powers, Kord kept mostly to himself, wandering the world, guarding his secrets. Kord’s life changed when he discovered the invader responsible for killing his wife and family and destroying his village all those years ago, is alive and well, and living in New York.
William Jefferson Sagahr has amassed a fortune over many lifetimes. Now living in Manhattan, the powerful magnate is head of a multi-national oil company. The thousand-year-old mercenary warrior was also given immortality and special powers by the same beings who gifted Kord. But Sagahr is nothing like Kord. A twisted evil resides within him, bursting out to wreak havoc on low-income neighborhoods in New York.
Kord travels to New York to confront his ancient nemesis and avenge his Nordic people and his dragon brethren. Sagahr wants to avoid his immortal enemy and hold onto his financial empire while feeding the darker urges burning inside him. A clash of these immortal titans in the heart of Manhattan would mean thousands of deaths and billions of dollars in destruction. Industrialist Brian West and police Lieutenant Robert Mackey must corral these two ancient warriors and keep their powers from leveling the Big Apple.
This is the second novel Greg has written featuring Duncan Kord. The first novel is Lost Sons, which you can find at Amazon.com. I read the book and really enjoyed it, so I was delighted that Greg submitted the sequel to Hadrosaur Productions for publication.
