Deemed one of the top 10 indie Fantasy releases of 2010 by Fantasy Book Critic, and listed in the first ever Publishers Weekly Indie Select issue, this 235k word epic title was originally written in longhand in a Texas prison cell by M. R. Mathias.
The Sword and the Dragon

When the Royal Wizard of Westland poisons the king so that his puppet prince can take the throne and start a continental war, a young squire is forced to run for his life carrying a powerful sword his dying monarch burdened him with from his death bed.

Two brothers find a magic ring and start on paths to becoming the most powerful sort of enemies. Meanwhile an evil young sorceress unwillingly falls in love with one of them after he agrees to help her steal a dragon's egg for her father. Her father just happens to be the Royal Wizard, and despite his daughter's feelings, he would love nothing more than to sacrifice the boy!

All of these characters, along with the Wolf King of Wildermont, the Lion Lord of Westland, and a magical hawk named Talon, are on a collision course toward Willa the Witch Queen's palace in the distant kingdom of Highwander. There, the very bedrock is formed of the powerful magical substance called Wardstone.

Who are the heroes? And will they get there before the Royal Wizard and his evil horde does?

Whatever happens, the journey will be spectacular, and the confrontation will be cataclysmic.

These events create a great deal of interest for the authors involved and to independently published books as a whole.It is a pleasure working with M.R.
