Publisher's Summary

The fate of the realm lies in the hands of a savage and a scoundrel....

Once a respected wizard....

Finster is now a drunkard and a con man living anonymously amongst simple, easily manipulated village folk. But his self-serving cunning cannot save him when soldiers of the Magus Supremeus of the High Order burst in to drag the disreputable mage to the dreaded Red Citadel.

Finster’s captor, the new Magus, is none other than Ingrid the Insane, his former student, a young woman of cold heart and ruthless ambition who has already murdered numerous magic-doers in her quest for ultimate power. The only reason Finster still lives is Ingrid’s belief that he knows the whereabouts of the Founders Stone, a magical artifact that could make her invincible.

Rendered powerless by a cursed scarab beetle attached to his back, Finster realizes he is doomed unless he escapes and recovers the Stone before Ingrid does, and he turns to his dungeon cellmate for help. But the hulking, mute, barbarian youth he calls “Moth” is inscrutable and unpredictable. And their ultimate survival — and the survival of an entire kingdom — may require the cowardly wizard to assume a most unfamiliar and uncomfortable role: hero!

Halloran makes a powerful stand with his thrilling fantasy adventure, The Red Citadel. Chock full of battles, magic, evil, and intrigue — and peppered with some delightful Terry Pratchett Discworld-esque cynicism — Red Citadel is the story of the salvation of the disreputable fallen wizard, Finster. Taken prisoner by a murderous despot, the cowardly mage must join forces with a hulking, young, barbarian mute to uncover a magical artifact in order to save his own skin, and quite possibly a kingdom as well.

Be sure to check out The Darkslayer Omnibus and The Chronicles of Dragon Collection as well. Each entire series in one single volume.

A Sorcerer who only wants to be alone. But....

A drunk Ex-Red Citadel Sorcerer is forced to save not only himself, but now the kingdoms he care for. But one problem (among many)- he is the target from many who either want him for information to get access to powers that trump their own, want him dead because just want him dead, or unforeseen attraction that may distract him from his ultimate goal.

Oh, and of course, he (Finster) has to be a fly to an unworldly beast of a man who not only did he save, but in return, has items of great power that would trump all powers. But one problem- there are some difficult situations that prevent him from acquiring those powers. He could easily kill the man (so he believes) to get those powers, but unexpected events have prevented him from doing so- he has become an ally to Finster.

If you want an entertaining story of fun, action, adventure, sorcery battles, wits, jests, laughter, and of course, be annoyed greatly by a little girl, then you will enjoy Craig Hallorans book, as well as the Narrator Lee Alan.
