The second chapter of the ten-part series sees Suladân taking to his new duties upon the Harad-Khand border with despair, until both plots of treason and signs of hope appear once again.
The first chapter in the second part of the Serpent Lord series sees Suladân, fresh from his exploits against the Cult of Sauron, travelling to the city of Badharkân, where he seeks to discover the heritage of his lost mother.
Carrying on the adventures of Amur Suladan from the ten-part 'The Rogue Prince' comes the second book in the Serpent Lord series - 'The Helm and the Sword'. Before the first part is posted, here is a catch-up of what happened in the last book.
After putting together the myriad fan-fictions and role-playing fluff of Khandish history, I wanted to create a solid set of annals showing its beginnings in the First Age until the Fourth Age. In this first part, the Variag peoples are established and the touch of Mordor is defined on them.
The last of the appendices charts the seven Corsair Wars that have raged between Gondor and Umbar, which have prominently included the men of Dol Amroth.
In the second appendix on Dol Amroth, I've presented a list of the twenty-four Princes of the city.
After my work on 'The Lineage of Amroth', I had a lot of unused source material and structure that were only glimpsed at through the narrative. Wanting them to see the light of day, I have divided them into three appendices. The first of these discusses the beginnings of the line of the Princes, and their ties to the Elven King Amroth.
Last in the Dol Amroth orientated series featuring the life of Lady Ivriniel. Taking a turn from the other chapters, the finale is more focused on the next generation, namely Morathol, the son of Ivriniel, as he must face the threat of a Corsair invasion, cut off and alone from the armies of the Prince Imrahil.
