The first book in JJ Sherwood's Steps of Power epic fantasy series. The Kings, Book I: Kings or Pawns is a political intrigue that spirals into an action and adventure series as the final events unfold.
8,994 P.E.—The elven city of Elvorium has become corrupted to the core by politics. With his father dead and the Royal Schism at his back, Prince Hairem ascends the throne as king of the elven world on Sevrigel. Young and bold, Hairem is determined to undo the council’s power, but the brutal murders by an assassin loosed within the city threaten to undermine the king’s ambitions.
As corruption and death threaten to tear Elvorium apart from within, the warlord Saebellus threatens the city from without, laying siege to Sevrigel’s eastern capital. With the elven world crumbling around him, Hairem finds himself in a dangerous political balance between peace and all out war.
The book they tried to stop, mainly for the reason that they thought it was too much for the great public to handle, and an absolute load of rubbish. I am Harry Balls, renowned paranormal investigator with a difference. I investigate those cases too complex or too vague (mainly the latter) that other paranormal investigators simply won't touch with a barge pole. Join me and my Office of Paranormal Studies licensed team on an epic  adventure as we travel the country uncovering the mysteries you've definitely never heard about before. Together we will lift the lid on the supernatural, and then quickly close the lid again before weird things start coming out. These mysteries range from mysterious home-helps to dubious ball pits, farting dogs, parish council conspiracies and even evil bingo dabbers. Live and breathe my journey with me as I explore these dark forces in the ‘Tales of the Unattested’ (hence the name of the book). One thing is for certain, you'll never think about the paranormal and supernatural in the same way again.

Zeuhks Voldstrin is the only person in his class who can see a person's past by touching one of their belongings. He tends to do that often when his Physics class bores him. Not to mention the fact that Zeuhks can feel the racing emotions of those who surround him. That simply annoys him to the extremity. However, there is a reason Zeuhks has such eerie gifts, and the reason is called Hazedonya.
Zeuhks is originally from Hazedonya, a land that was founded by people with special powers much like his own during the medieval period in England. Only now Hazedonya is a different place, a dark land dominated by the evil Queen Barbenia Voldstrin. Despite her classification, Zeuhks is no fan of his crazy mother.
Soon rumors have it that Andromeda Baranova (the rightful heir to throne) has been hidden in the soul dimension. When Barbenia discovers the rumors to be true, she orders Zeuhks to track down the girl and discover her powers before finally terminating her.
Forced into a prestigious boarding school in England, Zeuhks experiences the soul world of technology and societal difference. Yet, Zeuhks finds himself experiencing something much worse in his perception: a magnetic attraction to his family's enemy. Andromeda, unaware of Hazedonya's existence, is intelligent and funny and enables Zeuhks to feel emotions for himself. Fighting to resist the bond that slowly forms between them, Zeuhks is faced with the dilemma of detaching himself from the dark society surrounding his family or choosing to finally alienate himself with it forever.
