About the author

Reece's journey into literature began at an early age. His imagination was lost to the travels of Rudyard Kipling, the adventures of Mark Twain and nail-biting prose of HP Lovecraft. He was rarely seen without his head buried deep within the pages of a book. By the age of 11 he discovered Roald Dahl and CS Lewis's land of Narnia and commenced the long running series of Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf novels, whilst his late teens took him into the dark corridors of Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz.

In the nineties he wrote copy for a world renowned holiday corporation and later went on to study writing and photography with the Morris College of Journalism. At the end of 1999 he started his own travel company and by 2014 he sold the business to pursue the writing of Towards the Within.

Reece has travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and the Middle East. He currently resides in England where he is working on his third novel. His second book is due to be released in 2019.

A Blade of Dark Ebony tells the story of Ebon, who at the age of 20, is forced to face the reality of the world in which he lives, a world that can be capricious, but can also offer exciting rewards. Supported by key friends (Mendel, Gabriel and Caliel, the love of his life) he leaves the sheltered life of his youth to search for his real identity. Is he just like the father who raised him, or is he someone quite different? One thing he knows: the man who raised him as a father was one of the most skilled swordsmen of his day and he will have to work long and hard to follow in his footsteps. Impatient to gain glory, he needs to learn patience and commitment and come to understand that the training of the mind is every bit as important as the training of the body.As the story develops, the thoughts and ideals of his youth are severely challenged and he must decide the path he will follow. Even as his friends follow their planned path to glory through the army, Ebon is torn from their tight-knit fellowship and becomes a part of a mercenary army known as the Black Knights led by Arthur Pandell. Arthur, himself a swordsman of growing legend, decides to mentor Ebon. Enrolling Ebon in the intensive training program of mind and body he will need to succeed, Arthur unwittingly prepares Ebon to enter the first great tournament of the best warriors in the country. To gain glory Ebon must not only overcome the intrigue of his opponents, but the temptation to yield the very ideals of his young life. The pressure to win only intensifies when Ebon learns that only by winning can he help his beloved Caliel.
It is the summer of 1942. With the setbacks of the previous winter behind them, a reinvigorated German army is poised along a front stretching 2,100 kilometers, ready to strike the final blow to the Soviet Union. A refitted and up-armored panzer strike force with newer, more powerful 75-mm main guns and new leadership awaits along the Ukraine for the opening phase of Operation Blau (Blue). Although not as numerous as the forces that stormed their way into Russia one year before, these experienced troops are determined as ever to put an end to a conflict that has gone on too long. Even the youngest of privates understands that if the war in the east is to be won, it must be concluded with this campaign. Hitlers overambitious goal was to sweep the Soviet army off the steppes along the giant bend in the River Don straight through to the River Volga, cutting off Stalins main oil supply artery to his northern forces. Just as he did the previous year, Hitler suddenly alters his attack plans as Operation Blau unfolds. He strips much of the needed tank and motorized forces from the Sixth Army and diverts them down into the Caucasus region to seize the critical oil production facilities in places such as Maikop, Grozny, and Baku. With the defeat of Russia almost a certainty, combined with his most recent successes in North Africa, Hitler assured himself the swift collapse of the Allied armies and capitulation of the West was not long in coming. At long last, final victory was within his grasp.
