THE RISE OF
RUNES AND SHIELDS

Witchcraft need not be evil.

 

Twins Freyja and Bjorn live in a time when Viking magic, called the Seidr, is deemed witchcraft and forbidden. When their home is attacked by men sent from the tyrannical local earl, who accuses their mother of a murder she did not commit, the twins are forced to flee into the night and onto an adventure to not only prove their mother’s innocence but also set to rights the ills created by the misuse of the Seidr.

 

Along the way, they both make new friends, reunite with lost allies, visit hidden worlds, and learn the true ways of the Seidr, until they find themselves caught in the middle of the never ending war of the Fire and Frost Giants. Bjorn must learn the ways of magic and Freyja the life of the shield maidens if they are to survive.

Coming July 12, 2022

ABOUT US

DX Varos is a small press publishing company that produces works of fiction. Because of our smaller size, we are under no pressure to produce mass quantities of titles and are able to be very selective in our acquisitions. Therefore, all of our titles will be at the pinnacle of their genre.

 

We only take on a few new fiction authors each year. We also accept nonfiction works about royalty and royal families or biography in general through our House of Willis Publishing imprint. Click on House of Willis in the menu for more info.

Being a small publisher does not mean we don't offer the same services as the big guys do. And yes, we are a REAL publisher. Our authors pay nothing to have their books published. We handle all aspects of perfecting, producing, and distributing your work. We also do promotion, but expect our authors to do the same. To learn more about how we partner with our authors, please see the Expectations page.

 

About the name: The majority owner of the company is author Daniel A. Willis. Dano Varos is the main character of his first novel, Immortal Betrayal, and D. Xander Varos is a pen name he has used for certain writing. Many of Daniel's friends are convinced that novel is his autobiography (making him just over 600 years old!). So the company was named in homage to this fragment of the owner's complex personality.
