MATURE CONTENT WARNING
A Throne of Bones is the first in the Marcher Lord Hinterlands imprint. Hinterlands books may contain vulgarity, profanity, nudity, and/or sexual content, but never for gratuitous purposes. Hinterlands allows us to pursue crossover publishing that will put the word of the gospel before people who would never otherwise pick up a Christian novel. It also allows us to examine mature themes in a realistic manner that some Christians will appreciate. We know that not everyone will want to read these books, so we have set them apart into the Hinterlands imprint.

In Selenoth, the race of Man is on the ascendant. The ancient dragons sleep, the evil Witchkings are no more, their evil power destroyed by the courage of Men and the fearsome magic of the Elves. The dwarves have retreated to the kingdoms of the Underdeep, the trolls hide in their mountains, and even the most savage orc tribes have learned to dread the iron discipline of the mighty Amorran legions. But after four hundred years of mutual suspicion, the rivalry between two of the noble Houses Martial that rule the Senate and People threatens to turn violent, even as unrest sparks rebellion throughout the imperial provinces. In the north, the barbarian reavers who have long plagued the coasts of the White Sea sue for peace and beg for royal protection from the King of Savondir, fleeing a mysterious race of ravenous wolf-demons. In the east, there are wars and rumors of war as orcs and goblins gather together in unprecedented numbers, summoned by their dreadful gods.
But when the Most Holy and Sanctified Father is found dead in his bed, leaving the Ivory Throne of the Four Apostles unclaimed, the temptation to seize the Sacred College and wield Holy Mother Church as a weapon is more than some fallen souls can resist.
