Death Dealer Series
The Death Dealer series is an epic and brutal fantasy, rich with gore, sorcery, and the fight for survival. Written by James Silke in collaboration withâ€”and inspired byâ€”the artwork of Frank Frazetta. Set in an ancient time, in a lush valley that will some day become the Mediterranean sea, the barbarian protagonist, Gah of Baal, known to the forest people only as the Dark One, becomes consumed by the wrath and power of the Horned Helmet and transformed into the Death Dealer. Imprisoned by the helmet's evil, Gath must become a slave to its darkness in order to defend the forest tribes from the all conquering invasion of the desert people, the Kitzaak Horde. Gath's only hope lies in the rogue-like cleverness of an old man, Brown John, his two sons Bone and Dirken, and the magical touch of a nymphlike forest maiden, Robbin. The four novels are as follows: Prisoner of the Horned Helmet, Lords of Destruction, Tooth and Claw, and Plague of Knives.
