My original intention was to limit The Kinshield Saga to two books: The Kinshield Legacy and The Wayfarer King. However, I left a door ajar at the end of The Wayfarer King -- where "Cirang" unexpectedly survives her encounter with Ritol.

I've spent the summer & fall working on the next book about Gavin Kinshield and his friends. As I got closer to the end, I realized that to create a new ser... Read more of this blog post »

Really liked this book. I think too much time was spent on LoTR (vs. illustrating the points with a variety of books), but the information was valuable and well-presented. I really like the notion of resonance, but there could be a point at which an ...more

“Any doubt Gavin Kinshield had that he was in the right place vanished the moment he dismounted. The poplars and sweetgums, the shape of the cave mouth, the dirge-like song of a lone hermit thrush echoing through the trees—these things were as familiar as the boots on his feet. He gave Golam’s flank an absent pat, and the horse ambled away to nibble a nearby bush.”
K.C. May, The Kinshield Legacy

“A shudder rippled through him. This is where Calewen died, Gavin thought. When his eyes adjusted to the dimness, he looked around, expecting to see the queen’s blood spattered on the floor and walls. But he saw none. Not now, two hundred years later. His eyes focused on the far wall, about ten paces back. On a shelf of jutting rock rested a stone tablet.”
K.C. May, The Kinshield Legacy

“Gavin focused on the first rune, and as he stared, its image blurred. “Faroryn,” he whispered. The symbol represented strength, dependability, a sense of purpose. He had no idea how he knew this; it had come to him as though he’d simply remembered.”
K.C. May, The Kinshield Legacy
