Orphans of Tarnalin

Orphans of Tarnalin is the first book in the Bloodline Magic series.  An evil cult has set out resurrect a dead god, with the goal of laying waste to the world.  The only thing standing in their way is a small band of friends and magic wielders.

McDonnell merges elements of classic fantasy (a hero with newfound powers he’s struggling to understand; wizards; etc.) with a fast-paced, grimdark style.  Heartwarming friendships grow in an exceptionally brutal world; this mix of hope and despair give the story a well-balanced and mature tone.

Book two is scheduled for release this year.  I look forward to it!

McDonnell weaves fast-paced action with a mixed tone of hope and despair.
