I don't always review the books I receive, but I know there are readers who are always looking for more books to read, so I like to spotlight them in some way. Today I'm spotlighting The Vitalis Chronicles: White Shores by Jay Swanson.

White Shores (The Vitalis Chronicles, #1)Series: The Vitalis Chronicles #1
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Northern Range
Publication Date: 7/7/11

The world is languishing in the aftermath of the Continental Wars. Peace has reigned tentatively until the witch, thought to be the last of the magi, strikes back at the human race and brings them to their knees. Caught in the middle of the strife, Ardin Vitalis' family is murdered by his own nation's army. Striking out for revenge, he finds himself thrust into events that will change his world forever.

Tomb of the RelequimSeries: The Vitalis Chronicles #2
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Northern Range
Publication Date: 8/9/12

Ardin Vitalis’ last waking memory is of killing the Mage who betrayed him. The woman he loved was murdered just beyond his ability to save her, the Shadow King who killed her escaping into the storm around them. He awakes to find himself incarcerated in a rundown mental institution, asked to escape by a mysterious winged warrior, and charged with the rescue of a people an ocean away. Little does he know that his own people are being corrupted, compromised, and turned against each other by the returning influence of their former enemy: the Relequim. If Ardin can’t overcome the demons in his dark past, he may succumb to them, and become the tool of his own worst enemies.
