The Champion: The Dark Gauntlet Chronicles, a new book by David Holzgrefe, has been released by RoseDog Books.

There's no looking back. The Champion must keep moving forward, one step ahead of the evil that resides in the human world, and in himself. The darkness within threatens to overtake him, to pour out in uncontrolled fury, but The Champ clings to his dreams of being a hero among men.

Shimmer, a gifted magician and beacon of hope, helps keep the other-worldly champion on the straight and narrow. Without her, he would surely succumb to the evil voice that encourages his darkest desires. He still might give in to it. Even with Shimmer by his side, The Champ's righteous endeavor could easily cross the line to self-righteous domination of the human realm. Will who he wants to be triumph over who he is?
