    Author Information
    Paul S. Kemp is a lawyer. That is bad. He is also the bestselling author of the Erevis Cale sword and sorcery stories and several Star Wars novels. That is good. It's a little known fact that Paul has maimed eight men and three llamas using only an unsharpened pencil and a stick of Wrigley's gum. Now you know, too. He does not hum show tunes. Paul lives in Michigan with his wife and twin sons.
    Review quote
    "The structure of the story has the feeling of a classic Dungeons & Dragons campaign as the heroes and supporting cast cross a wasted plateau in search of the tomb; however, the strong characters, setting, and history turn what could be a cookie-cutter adventure into a gripping tale." - "Publisher's Weekly""Enough page-turning mayhem to sate the most avid sword & sorcery fans" - Elaine Cunningham, author of "The Thorn Trilogy" "This rollicking tale hooked me from the get-go. Told with zest and humor, this is everything that is good and golden about classic old-school fantasy yarns. It joins my precious bedside shelf of favorite re-reads, 'comfort food' books I turn to again and again. Egil and Nix might not be the safest guys to go adventuring with, but they're sure good company. I'll be waiting for a sequel. Impatiently." - Ed Greenwood, bestselling creator of Forgotten Realms""The Hammer and the Blade" is an instant classic, with its punchy sense of humor, likeable heroes, and fast-paced, creative fight sequences. Killing a demon is just the prologue and after that the real adventure begins." - City Book Review
