THE BAN OF IRSISRI (link)

The Gauntletbearer, The Swordbearer, and The Tribesman. Three men with quests to save the world from The Gatekeeper, the man trying to rule it.

Long ago, with dusty rites and moldy tomes, a powerful artifact known as the Gauntlets was fashioned for a sorcerer's hands. Promising untold power, the Gauntlets were taken and concealed for safekeeping. For ages they were lost, but now, the sorcerer Raethir Del has tracked them down. If he ignores the Ban of Irsisri and takes them, he will rain death and destruction across the lands. Three men embark on separate quests, and only their actions can enforce the Ban of Irsisri and avert the rise of incredible evil.

Enkinor, bearer of the Gauntlets, lost to the world, imprisoned by a spell transporting him from one nightmare to the next. Visylon, warrior and Swordbearer, on whose power prophesied judgment depends. Longhorn, nomadic tribesman, charged with the impossible -- bringing these men together.

One must sacrifice desire for duty.
One must embrace healing over harming.
And one must escape the Dreamtunnel.

MISSING IN ACTION, 1863:
LIEUTENANT ANDREW JACKSON LACY
AND TENNESSEE’S CONFEDERATE CAVALRY
(link)

Lieutenant Andrew Jackson Lacy served in Tennessee's Confederate cavalry under Nathan Bedford Forrest and disappeared during the Civil War. His great-great-grandson took it upon himself to tackle this 150-year-old missing persons case. Drawing on a large number of family letters from the Civil War, Mark Lacy has reconstructed the story of his ancestor's service to the Confederacy as well as the chaotic circumstances under which the young lieutenant vanished behind enemy lines, only twenty-five miles from home. The result is a detailed account that brings the war down to a personal level and highlights the hardships brought on by guerrillas attacking families and their farms.
