Dawn of Darkness (The Knights of Ezazeruth #2) 26, Dec

Few Authors out there dare to kill their main protagonist, even in the GrimDark sub-genre of Fantasy. To do so in the first book of a trilogy, and keep him dead in the second (Spoiler: For half of the book) requires huge cojones. Now, to do all of these and succeed in doing so... that requires a talented author. And Thomas R. Gaskin is exactly that.
