The Ghost King

An Ancient Prophecy foretold: an Evil haunts the land, and a battle looms against overwhelming odds.

A wild invading army threatens to tear the Soulless lands apart. To survive, Wilky must unite the three tribes, but old grievances and hatred divide them. When he glimpses the future, he sees only a glimmer of hope behind a veil of darkness.

King Dermot orders his brother, Prince Eamon, to stay and defend the Stronghold against a possible siege, but Eamon violates his oath and defies his brother. He risks everything and plunges into a desperate race with Aaliss and Wilky to unite the tribes.

As the battle looms, only one chance at survival remains—the Ghost King—but who is he, and what will be the price of their redemption?

Karen Teague says: "I’m just wow, once again I was transported to this world and felt like I was part of it. This book was even better than the first one. The flow of the story is perfection; the characters feel so real. Jeff captured the emotions very well. I didn’t find any errors so once again this shows the editor and the writer both care about the quality of book they are putting out. I can’t say enough about this book. To me this series has become a must read if you’re into fantasy."

Andrea L. Stoeckel says: "In Red Death, Altabef drew a marvelous community of, in a lot of ways, misfits, miscrients and wayward souls that others abandoned. In this, the second book, they begin to come together as their understanding of the Good and the Evil of this world choose sides around a battle that will change their world forever. Fantasy that touches on civility, theology and ethics as well as romance can stall or drive a fantasy. In the case of Jeff Altabef, the brakes are off. A fantastic and challenging read!"

Marie Rice says: "Lots and lots of action, and I got surprised many times. As the description mentions, battle is looming – so some characters are going to die, others will get injured. My heart about stopped at the end of the story. What a way to set the stage for the next book."
