Western King

by Ann Marston
August 1, 2012

A re-print of Ann Marston’s Book 1 of the much beloved Rune Blades of Celi series.

Triumphing over adversity and evil, Kian dav Leydon brings the fabled Rune Blade Kingmaker back to the Isle of Celi after it was stolen, so the Isle will be ready when and if invasion comes.

This is an exceptionally well-done Celtic fantasy…a multiple-layered prince-in-disguise story…a lively mix of action, romance and cultural details. This one grabbed me from the start.

Locus Magazine

…the plot is wonderfully creative.


A positive joy to read.


Tolkien fans take note! Kingmaker’s Sword has the spirit and the heart of Tolkien in it.”


With Kingmaker’s Sword, a beautiful and potent new voice enters the world of fantasy. Gleaming swordplay meets timeless romance in a novel of shimmering extremes.

Mike Resnick, author of Stalking the Unicorn

Ann Marston brings to life a fascinating medieval world of magic and mayhem, of love and honor, and of complex, engaging characters.

Adventures of Sword and Sorcery

Kingmaker’s Sword is a fresh, highly entertaining tale, engagingly written. And the best part is that there’s more to come in the saga.
