The Ghost King

An Ancient Prophecy foretold. An Evil haunts the land. A battle looms against overwhelming odds.

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."

This second book in the Red Death series, a powerful, sweeping, dark dystopian fantasy that combines medieval lore with magic, betrayal, and unforgettable characters, is ideal for readers 13 and up.
Led by a powerful witch, a wild invading army threatens to tear the Soulless lands apart. To survive, the three tribes must join together, but old grievances and hatred divide them. Only Wilky can unite them, but when he glimpses the future, he sees only a glimmer of hope; too much of the future remains veiled in darkness.

As the battle approaches, King Dermot orders his brother, Eamon, to stay behind at the Stronghold and defend against a possible siege. Eamon, who took an oath to fight the invaders, defies his brother, risks everything, and plunges into a desperate race with Aaliss and Wilky to unite the tribes.

Enemies from all sides conspire against them. Only together can they hope to succeed against the witch who will stop at nothing to destroy them. Yet even united, they will need magic to defeat this enemy at their door.

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?
