What makes someone stand up and be counted? Where does such inner strength come from? Erran D’al never thought he was special on his home world of Vorsa. If anything, he was just a middle-ranking knight among the Kaloran nobles. His only real ambition was to marry his childhood sweetheart and disappear into domestic obscurity.

Then, on his way home from a trade expedition, something happened which would change the course of his life forever. A battle with a familiar foe, the Moora, uncovers a resolve and purpose he was unaware he had. However, there are also strange forces at work; and these, together with his ability to motivate those around him, begin to get him noticed. To aide him in his quest he is led to an ancient weapon with mysterious powers. But is he compelled by his own convictions, or is he being coerced?

About the author

Hollis Earl is a civil servant living in Wales, United Kingdom. He principally trained as a musician and this remains his first passion. But before the music came an interest in astronomy, which in turn led to a fascination with science fiction. " We know so little about our universe and this fuels our imagination. I think everyone has a good story in them and this one, called Citadel, is hopefully mine."

Citadel is based on an old tale but given a new twist: "I wanted the characters to tell the story in their own words (without too much interference from me!), much like the plays from the late 16th and early 17th centuries. I don't know whether it's science fiction or science fantasy, but I hope it works on either level. I also hope it's the story, and not the genre, that draws people to this first instalment."
