The Crimson Shield Paperback
by Nathan Hawke
Part of the Gallow series
I have been Truesword to my friends, Griefbringer to my enemies.
To most of you I am just another Northlander bastard here to take your women and drink your mead, but to those who know me, my name is Gallow.
I fought for my king for seven long years. I have served lords and held my shield beside common men.
I have fled in defeat and I have tasted victory and I will tell you which is sweeter.
Despise me then, for I have slain more of your kin than I can count, though I remember every single face. For my king I will travel to the end of the world. I will find the fabled Crimson Shield so that his legions may carry it to battle, and when Sword and Shield must finally clash, there you will find me.
I will not make pacts with devils or bargains with demons for I do not believe in such things, and yet I will see them all around me, in men and in their deeds.
Remember me then, for I will not suffer such monsters to live. Even if they are the ones I serve.
