Revenge. It seemed simple to Liam. 

When he was only six years old, he witnessed the brutal murders of his mother and father. So Liam had dedicated his life to finding his parents' killers and bringing them to justice. After all, he was the son of Lord Willem Oswald, the Grandmaster of Ontavia's paladins, and Lady Naya Oswald, a great master paladin herself. Surely, Liam, too, was bound to become a great paladin, perhaps even the next Grandmaster.

Then he would be powerful enough to hunt down the Red paladins that had killed his parents. Then he would be powerful enough to have what he deserved. Revenge. 

But once he goes undercover as Ozwell Stahl, Liam quickly learns that nothing is that simple in Ontavia. Attacked from within and without by decadence and darkness, the nation desperately needs good people to steer it back on course.  Liam must decide if he can give up his personal need for vengeance and, instead,  join those who seek justice for everyone in Ontavia.

Revenge. Somehow it no longer seemed simple.

Welcome to the life of the paladin! "Candidate" is the first novel in my epic illustrated fantasy adventure called "The Grandmaster's Son." This novel has been broken into two books: "Fire & Forge" and "Trials & Teeth." The text of "Fire & Forge" is complete and the illustrations are about half done. The text for "Trials & Teeth" is about half way done and should be finished by September 2016. At that point, I will take a break from writing new material and focus on finishing the illustrations for both books.

This is a work of love for my children and for the many children, young adults, and adults I am blessed to have as part of my life. Please let me know what you think about the story, the writing, and the illustrations (starting with the cover) as I add them.  Your votes and comments mean a great deal to me.

Ok, to begin, I like the symbolband the background of the cover, but I think you can use a better simpler font. Also, I think it's better to get rid of the red frame. The current cover as is reminds me of old RPG game covers, which I'm not sure if it stands in the bad or good side.

Liking it so far. Although I believe father had little time around and there was no details about these "Goblin wars"

I felt this chapter could use more dialogue, but it was great nevertheless.
Just started reading it, but already so entranced, a great first chapter

Seriously old RPG game material. Has some charm to it, but maybe work on the poses more?

                              Fascinating prologe.. I loved the description of entire scene, and the cliff hanger was cherry on the top..
