Cadman's Gambit by D.P. Prior

indie ebook cover

Cadman's Gambit is book 1 of the Shader series.

The holy knight Deacon Shader has one last fight in him. This time it’s just a tournament, with the prize a sword steeped in myth. Win or lose, Shader intends to defy his Templum masters and retire to the Abbey of Pardes.

But when a horror from the past wrecks Shader’s monastic dream and leads him to the plague-torn city of Sarum, he finds an ancient power unleashed that imperils more than he could possibly imagine—a power now in the hands of a liche named Dr. Cadman.

Undead legions swarm toward Sarum in response to Cadman's call, and sinister eyes are drawn from beyond the stars.

Shader's dream lies in tatters as he learns he has been prepared for the coming conflict since the day he was born. With his faith shaken to the core and his inner demons threatening to break free, he has little choice but to stand firm against the unweaving of all Creation.

About The Author...

indie author

D.P. Prior

      

I was born in the South East of England in the late sixties, just in time to get a good sniff at the Summer of Love.

I spent most of my childhood immersed in fantasy and SF novels as well as Marvel comics. I also had an unhealthy obsession with D&D and was, for a long time, a member of the rather dodgy wargaming society at the Archery recreation ground.

After studying theatre at Lewes I did a season as Father Christmas, worked as a lighting and sound technician, and then trained for three years to be a Mental Health Nurse. I started in one of the Victorian asylums but ended up at the University of Sussex.

Once qualifying, I was immediately off to Aberystwyth to study for a BA in Drama. I also studied Classics and Medieval History and ended up specializing in Acting and Intercultural Theatre.

I gained twenty years of varied experience in mental health, working in acute services, crisis resolution, management of violence and aggression, and eating disorders. This was interspersed with a five month postulancy with the Carmelite Order in Melbourne and further studies at the University of Notre Dame in Western Australia.
On my second sojourn in Australia, following the birth of my son, Theo, I began work on my first completed novel, The Resurrection of Deacon Shader. This went through many iterations and ended up forming the raw material for Cadman’s Gambit, book one of the Shader series. It was at this time that I took to wearing a poncho and Panama hat whilst chopping firewood. It seemed to help with the writing at the time, but now I have my doubts.

I founded and moderated the Mysticism Unbound discussion group to help explore some of the themes for my postgraduate research into Antonin Artaud and the Theatre of Cruelty. Although the group eventually closed it has subsequently been resurrected twice and is currently flourishing on Facebook.

Following my return from Australia I trained to become a personal trainer and set up my own gym (Fitness Instruction for Strength and Health). I specialized in resistance training and worked exclusively with private clients until I sold the gym.

I began to edit professionally in 2009 during a trip to Chicago and this developed into a flourishing business (Homunculus Editing Services).
