The Second book of the Astar’s Blade series, Kilmer’s Ghost, complete at 112,000 words, is a fantastic coming-of-age story with paranormal elements. About a boy who is haunted by a ghost he calls Hollow Face. As tragedy strikes, he must learn to face his fears, allowing his ghost to guide him. The boy will need to become a chameleon to survive, getting ever closer to the one man he desperately wants to see dead: none other than the king himself.
Along his way, Kilmer will go to war, fall in love, and becomes entangled in powerful magical forces that will not allow him to leave the haunted Sanguine Forest. These demonic forces seek him out for an entirely different purpose: the birth of a new evil. Ultimately his fate, the fate of his only love, the fate of his men, and the fate of the king, will all be decided by the actions of one: Kilmer’s Ghost.
