By Mariana Zans

The second book in J.V. Hilliard's Warminster Series, "Vorodin's Lair," takes readers back to a world where magic, mystery, and adventure meet in an epic story of danger and intrigue.

The protagonists of the story are Addilyn Elspeth, an Elven princess, and Daemus, a Keeper of the Cathedral of the Watchful Eye, who are both struggling with terrible visions that portend the return of the immortal sorcerer Vorodin. They learn secrets that could destroy their realm's fragile peace and send it into turmoil as they set out on a treacherous voyage to Vorodin's Lair in the scholar city of Abacus.

Hilliard skillfully ties together a number of storylines, ranging from Daemus and Addilyn's search for meaning to Graytorris the Mad's unrelenting quest for retribution as a fallen Keeper driven mad by his desire for vengeance. With relationships being put to the test, betrayals occurring often, and Warminster's future hanging in the balance, the stakes are high.

Readers are drawn into a fantasy and adventure-filled narrative by "Vorodin's Lair" because of its vividly created universe and engrossing characters. Hilliard's writing talent is evident in everything from the complex politics of the realm to the physical exhilaration of combat, captivating readers until the very end.

The twists and turns of this compelling story, in which prophesies come to pass, wars rage, and the true meaning of heroism is tested, will satisfy fans of epic fantasy. "Vorodin's Lair" is an excellent addition to the Warminster Series that demonstrates Hilliard's skill at creating thrilling and engrossing fantasy stories.

About the Author

J.V. Hilliard

Born of steel, fire and black wind, J.V. Hilliard was raised as a highlander in the foothills of a once-great mountain chain on the confluence of the three mighty rivers that forged his realm's wealth and power for generations.

His father, a peasant twerg, toiled away in industries of honest labor and instilled in him a work ethic that would shape his destiny. His mother, a local healer, cared for his elders and his warrior uncle, who helped to raise him during his formative years. His genius brother, whose wizardly prowess allowed him to master the art of the abacus and his own quill, trained with him for battles on fields of green and sheets of ice.

Hilliard’s earliest education took place in his warrior uncle’s tower, where he learned his first words. HIs uncle helped him to learn the basics of life—and, most importantly, creative writing.

Hilliard’s training and education readied him to lift a quill that would scribe the tale of the realm of Warminster, filled with brave knights, harrowing adventure and legendary struggles. He lives in the city of silver cups, hypocycloids and golden triangles with his wife, a ranger of the diamond. They built their castle not far into the countryside, guarded by his own two horsehounds, Thor and MacLeod, and resides there to this day.
