Greetings…

All of the Monsters. None of the Regrets.

New Release!


Justice is dead. Long live vengeance.

Under the banner of truce during the holy Spring Festa, four Chosen priests of the war god brutalized me, cut my throat, and dumped my naked corpse in a mass grave.

They plan to do the same to my entire clan.

The priests of the Hierarchy believed that was the end of me.

But Death loves me. And he’s giving me a second shot.

There’s a price I’ll need to pay, of course. Later. I have a plan for that, too.

First, I have unfinished business with my murderers. I need to save my family and protect my clan. And I burn for revenge. I’ll kill the four that took my life and threatened those I love.

They won’t die easy.

    Unpopular Opinion: The new Dune didn’t suck.

    “I Bought It Because of the Cover”
    You’ve all been there. That trip to the bookstore where you wander the stacks, no definite book in mind, but you know you’re in the mood for something…different. Something that doesn’t pull its punches. Something that will live up to …

    About Dave Reed

    No, I don’t write about the heroes you want. I make the monsters you need.

    I’m a multimedia storyteller with my deepest roots in written fiction. My dark fantasy tales contain more swords and sorcery and sex than the law allows. 🐉

    In the boring Real World™, I dwell with my warrior-queen (and my demons) in the vicinity of San Antonio, Texas 🦂, where I engineer software, bleed on the krav maga training mat, pretend to shoot competitively, and scribble novels to keep my sanity.
