The IronScythe Sagas


“Dark, epic fantasy at its very best”

And from the dark unknown came a hooded avenger…

When the Scowl is brought before the court of King-Emperor Jhaz’Elrad, accused of murdering a young noble, he is unexpectedly saved from execution by the ambitious Dracus Krall.

In return for his life, the Scowl is sent on weregild to kill the evil golem that has lurked in the Krall family home for generations. A terrible, haunted creature, created by dark majiks in the time of Delving.

Accompanying the task is Dracus’ teenage niece, Vareena, a strong-willed tom-boy who grew up in the shadow of her uncle’s ambition and who has resisted his many attempts to marry her off. But Vareena is not as she seems. She harbours a secret power that her uncle would gladly kill for.

Together, Vareena and the Scowl begin an uneasy alliance. An alliance that will change both of their lives forever…

Amazon Reviews

“Flesh Golem is a brilliant work of fantasy. I got it this morning and found it so engaging…I’m currently recommending K.J.Heritage to everyone I know who likes authors such as Michael Moorcock.”

 “I love K.J.Heritage’s writing style. His stories are the kind you can get lost in. I have a hard time putting them down because I’m so eager to find out what happens next. I recommend Flesh Golem highly. And now I’m on to the next!”

“I’d give this novella six stars if I could. Brilliantly written, it’s as dark and gory as it is richly detailed with breath-taking prose.”

“Packed with detail and the story was really enjoyable. This is a solid five-stars in my book. I highly recommend it, and suggest that future readers read this prior to the rest of the saga.”
