Author of the Malirou Cutorim series.

Stephen R Madden tells the story of a young prince whose family is murdered but years later returns to recapture the throne.  The family responsible rules - but there is a twist!

The man responsible has died years before and his son now rules.  He is a good man, considered a good king by the people.

It is a conflict of two good men.

Who shall prevail?  Will the Malirou Cutorim, the Law of the land, determine the outcome, or will battle?  Or is their destiny determined by outside forces for other, more sinister reasons.

Prepare for the War for the Throne!
