Sword of Betrayal
Author: Robert Evert
Publication Date: 17 September 2019
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Publisher: Between the Lines
Edris’s lay-about life of privilege ends abruptly when his father, Lord Elros, announces that his adolescent son will enter the military in the spring. Edris has only six months to ready himself to serve a king who despises his family and will undoubtedly make his life beyond miserable.
To prepare him, Lord Elros puts Edris through a brutal training regime. Not only does he demand Edris beat every man with whom he spars, but he also insists his son knock them unconscious—even if that means fighting dirty.
About to crack under the relentless pressure, the sensitive Edris seeks a way to get out from under his father’s heavy thumb. A solution presents itself when an announcement for the latest Kings’ Quest arrives. According to the royal proclamation, the adventurer who finds the fabled Sword of Betrayal will win one thousand gold pieces, money Edris could use to start his own life with the woman he loves.
Edris proposes to undertake the quest in order to get in better shape; however, Lord Elros has another idea—Edris will undertake the quest so he can get close to, and kill, the king’s son.
Crossing the ring, Edris dropped his guard slightly.
Cedric’s expression brightened as he threw another right hook.
With the crystal clarity he always experienced when he fought, Edris calculated the route the punch would take and then analyzed his best option. He’d block the blow with a sweeping left forearm and then send a right to Cedric’s—what? His eye? He’d hate to hurt him too badly. Nose? He needed to finish the fight. He drank five pints of beer before the match and had to get to the privy. Hitting him in the nose might not end it. He’d hit him in the chin, but not so hard that it’d break…
A scowling face in the crowd seized Edris’s attention. It was his father, Lord Elros, and he wasn’t happy.
Cedric’s blow exploded flush against Edris’s jaw.

By day, Robert Evert is an old and decrepit university professor who teaches hordes of smelly college students who rarely deign to look up from their damned phones to pay attention to the many brilliant and exciting things he has to say in class. By night, he is an aspiring writer.
Once young and idealistic and built like a skinny Norwegian god, Robert has been beaten down by time, pointless faculty meetings, and hundreds of students who repeatedly come up to him and ask: “I wasn’t in class last week. Did I miss anything?” He is now a shell of a man who sits in his darkened office sobbing while he waits patiently for Ragnarök.
When Robert isn’t daydreaming about walking through the streets of Bree or sitting in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, he writes fantasy stories which he reads to the critical acclaim of his two dogs and three cats.
His wife wants him to stop grumbling to himself and finish doing the dishes.a Rafflecopter giveaway https://widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js
