Another Fairy Bastard
Rise of the New Arcana (Volume I)
Murder, Mayhem and Magic.
College prepares you for many things, and the Army even more, but neither prepared Dalton Graham for the murder that occurred across the hall, or the fact that he was its intended victim.
Assailed and assaulted by inhuman, magic wielding villains who want nothing more than his death–he goes on the run; protected by the mysterious and lethal Umi Nitaku, who is equal parts shy stranger and beautiful angel of death.
As they flee from one danger to another, he begins to discover the arcane ability that is his birthright, and the reason why it has entire houses of the Eloim united against him.
He will need all his courage and cunning if he is to avoid a violent death and a shallow grave.
He will need the truest of friends and powerful magic if wants to be anything more than…
Another Fairy Bastard
Better known for being an awesome father, devoted husband, impassioned employee, and candidly, being way too impressed with himself; Ron Randall has been in love with words from a very early age.
He whiled away entire seasons exploring the worlds of Tolkien, Donaldson, Kurtz, Eddings, Anthony, Aspirin, Resnick, Silverberg, Harrison and too many more legends of the genre to count. When he first put pen to paper, however, it was creating intelligence studies for US military and political leaders, when US troops were getting deployed to hot spots around the globe.
He has made a career out of choosing just the right ones to help the businesses he has been a part of to become leaders in their industry.
When not spending time with his family he enjoys reading, writing, movies, music, travel and the company of other smart-asses.
He was born in California, raised in Michigan, served his country as an intelligence analyst in the US Army, attended college at San Diego State, and somehow, after all that, found himself a Hoosier, and decided he liked it. Must be something about corn and cows…
A very interesting book with a whole lot to be worked out. Marvelous characters that I need to learn more about. An excellent start, I need more.

This is well written, well paced and the characters are interesting and genuinely engaging. Well worth a read and I am eagerly anticipating the next in the series.
Omnivorous reader in the UK Verified Purchase
Burns through plot at pace. Easy Read.
Not a “me too” Jim Butcher but a good read in its own right. Cared enough about the characters to want to read its sequel. Put the music on and there are few better ways to spend solo time than an enjoyable book in lockdown.
“If reading my book takes you to a place where you can forget about your worries, discover a little magic, introduces you to friend or two, and makes even one day of your life a little better–than I have accomplished all I could ever ask to do.”
― Ron Randall
