A Song of Roland
Author: Michael Eging,Steve Arnold
When unknown raiders kidnapped Marianna, everyone expected a ransom demand to soon follow. Such was the peril of everyday royal life in the chaotic times following abandonment of the misty isles of Albion by indifferent Rome. But when weeks went by without word her father, High King Mattheus, dispatched teams of trusted warriors to find her and bring her assailants to account. Young Erik, Scion of the House of Birkenshire, was one of these. Separated from his comrades and alone in hostile territories, he plunged headlong into forgotten vales and desolate coasts in pursuit, driven onward by precious memories of stolen tender moments. Then he stood before the grim fortress – wherein he found, not the innocent damsel of his youthful desires, but a terrifying beauty borne of an ancient evil that bound his soul to an even more primal force bent on regaining its place in the halls of human exaltation. Now caught between two worlds, he must resist the temptations of his beloved-turned-succubus while protecting his family, his people and his world from the encroaching grasp of Arawn, Lord of Annwyn, Ruler of the Dead, Elder God of the Mabinogion. In this journey to regain his soul, the knight must find a way to strike the fatal blow against a resurgent primal darkness.

Arizona in the early twentieth Century, had more than its share of violent and lawless men who wreaked havoc as they roamed the Territory. The Arizona Rangers, a small company of tough men, were formed to deal with this criminal element. In a modern age, the Rangers fought the outlaws with old-fashioned methods. On horseback, with lever-action Winchesters and single-action Colts they rode after the outlaws through the vast deserts and high mountains of Arizona Territory. When he learns that a rancher's wife and daughter are kidnapped and taken to Mexico, Captain Wheeler, the Ranger commander, sends one of his best men to work with Colonel Kosterlitsky and the Mexican Rurales. Although their approach to enforcing the law is different and sometimes at odds, these men must work together in their common mission of tracking down the gang of cutthroats. The author was raised on the Mexican border and his roots are four generations deep in the region. He has great admiration and respect for those hardy folks who, in the face of great adversity, settled and thrived in the great Southwest. The many stories he listened to while growing up, some true, some not, served as the inspiration for Rio Sonora.
