This book is a religious fantasy set in the times of the Holy Roman Empire about the early 13th Century. There were twelve primus paladins and a number of lesser paladins, who were holy warriors. (The name, paladin, apparently comes from the twelve foremost warriors in Charlemagne's court. The paladin was originally a government official, from the Latin, someone who lived on the Palatine hill, which in turn meant someone extraordinarily rich. The riches seem to be done away with in this story.) ...more

EMPIRE PALADIN: Realm of the Dead begins with the death and destruction of the paladin, Vhaldrynn Malleus, wife and two daughters. He grieves and bitterness completely destroys his faith and servitude for God. He chooses to take a path totally contrary, and is resolved to destroy everyone on earth so no one is left for God. It is at that moment the Father of Lies supplies him with the ability to raise an army from the dead. Satan had set the stage; a leading paladin had been possessed by a demon ...more

Empire Paladin: Realm of the Dead by M.S. Valdez is not for the faint hearted. I don't recommend this as a bed time read either. It's been written with an adult reader in mind. It's a historical dark fantasy.

The scene is set in the year 1241, the holy Roman Empire is being torn apart by several up rests including Civil war. Unfortunately the Pope has also died causing the church to be in turmoil.
We meet Camila Chastine, a paladin knight for the Holy Church, she finds it hard however to maintain

Unbelievable, this is another masterpiece added to the collection, this year has surely surprises me in many ways, and this is another amazing book!
Set in the Roman Empire, the Pope has recently died, the struggle to keep the peace is increasing and one brave paladin knight, Camila, commits to her duty to protect the realm against everything that poses as a threat, the thing is, what if that said threat defeats her?
This book is amazing, it’s dark, it’s scary at times, there is a lot of action,

There is a person out in the world who decided that the Roman Empire wasn't brutal enough and thought to themselves, "why not throw zombies into the mix?". And I guess, now that I think about it, Game of Thrones could be construed similarly. However, in this case, that author is M. S. Valdez and that book is called EMPIRE PALADIN: Realm of the Dead.

Despite the grim summary featuring a grieving man raising an undead army to unleash revenge on the empire responsible for the horrors of war, EMPIRE

Empire Paladin is a horror story that gives you goose bumps and boosts up your adrenaline. The story is centered around Paladins who are gifted fighters in the holy Roman empire. These Paladin are tremendous fighters and great healers. In fact some could even make a recently dead person alive. However one unfortunate incident turns one of the Paladin's into a villainous character and takes him on a spree to destruction.

The story is immensely interesting and thrilling and keeps you connected with

Historical novel fans will get a real kick out of this thriller. The author put a lot of research into his work, so you can see where the story connected to the historical period. The descriptions in this novel really add to the thriller element too, which made the book stand out to me. Plus, they help to create an image that will actually make you feel as if you have taken a step back in time. I really loved the characters and how it all comes together to create a story that I won’t soon ...more

Empire Paladin is at its core a story of good vs evil. A paladin -Malleus- becomes angry at God when his wife and children are killed, and basically starts working for the devil with an army of the undead. The main character, Camila, is the chosen one to fight him and restore good. She is an engaging character; a good example of trying to keep fighting for good no matter the cost. The novel really isn’t my usual cup of tea but I like branching out occasionally. If you

Dark Fantasy!
As the name suggests its dark, scary, historical fiction, fantasy, set around 1200 during the time of the Holy Roman Empire. After the pope’s death the scene is chaotic, where empire wants to take the control and Camila has sworn to protect the empire from evils. She did not realize the evils can be deal soldiers too. The plot is good and well written and as the books unfold it does manage to capture the reader’s attention.

What can I say? I'm heavily biased! An exciting story about paladins during the year of 1241 A.D. It is set in the Holy Roman Empire and has numerous historical references to that time period.

The main character, Camila Chastaine, is a paladin (or holy knight) in service to the Empire. She is quite zealous and self-righteous in her beliefs. Her two companions, Talitha and Atrael (also paladins), are considering whether to remain in her company due to her extreme beliefs. They have to put that
