9789491730177: Rhidauna: The Shadow of the Revenaunt, Book 1 (Volume 1)

'Rhidauna', the first book of the great fantasy series 'The Shadow of the Revenaunt'. The night before his Coming-of-Age, Ghyll and his two friends escape their castle on a clandestine boar hunt that will forever change their lives. The hunt proves a disaster, and with one of them badly wounded, they return just in time to see their island castle destroyed by macabre warriors from a dragon boat, and by flocks of fire-breathing birds. Ghyll's eighteenth birthday turns into a nightmare as they flee into the night. Now begins an epic journey to find out who is trying to kill them – and most importantly, why? Fortunately, they can count on the help of new friends, including a sometimes overly enthusiastic fire mage, an inexperienced paladin and a young beastmistress who is also a ferocious mountain lioness. It soon becomes clear that not one but several sorcerers want to kill them. Are those blackrobes really followers of a terrible, long-forgotten organization? And whose cold hand reaches across the boundaries of space and time to crush weakened Rhidauna? Note from the Author: This version has been revised on some vital plot points. "Rhidauna by Paul E. Horsman is a compelling and fast paced fantasy story that takes you on a thrilling, action packed horseback adventure across a country filled with powerful magic, greed and treachery." (Readers' Favorite 5* Review)

From the Author:

Rhidauna was my first novel, an epic adventure story for both Y.A. (Dutch rating 15+) and Adults.
I started on the original Dutch version in the summer of 2009, and wrote it and the second volume, Zihaen, more or less in one sitting. 
 
For the Dutch market, a novel of over 250.000 words was far too long, so on the advice of W.J. Maryson, (a well-known Dutch fantasy writer who alas died far too soon in 2011) I split the manuscript in two parts.
 
Then I went looking for a publisher. The first one, a major Dutch imprint, was interested, but they went into a reorganization and it came to nought.
 
I then offered my books to a genre publisher, specialized in fantasy and sf, Zilverspoor, in Maastricht.
They accepted the first three books of the Rhidauna series, The Shadow of the Revenaunt, and published  the first book in 2012. 
 
The English version appeared under the Red Rune Books label in 2013, with a cover illustration made by the well-known Dutch artist Jos Weijmer.
