THE MAIDEN'S WAR is an epic war novel informed by my years of service in the United States Army. Set in an industrializing fantasy world where magic has almost, but not entirely died out, it tells the story of the latest campaign of the Thousand Years' War of the Empire of Masks against the Western Kingdom - a war that, not too long ago, the Kingdom seemed to have won. Rising like a phoenix after decades of brutal insurgency broke the Royal occupation, the Empire is more powerful than ever and hell-bent on vengeance.
Now the Imperial Army has stormed across the Night River, destroying the Kingdom's mightiest fortress in a matter of hours and opening the door for a massive invasion. The Royal Army mobilizes for a counteroffensive, sweeping along Sophia Rose, a young reservist from the idyllic town of Jade Falls, and Princess Arilin Wehrherz, second in line for the throne. But can they succeed against the steel-masked avalanche?
