Vavaun: The Shadow of the Revenaunt
by Paul E.Horsman
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Release Date: June 12th 2016
Red Rune Books

Summary from Goodreads:

After helping King Ghyll to his victory in Zihaen, the beastmasters Uwella and Damion turn their attention to their own country of Vavaun.

High time, too, for the rumors have been persistent. There is something wildly amiss in the Gray Order, the temple protecting Vavaun from the Darkhamorths machinations.

When Uwella DeGry, herself a wikke of the Grays and the heir to the throne of Vavaun, returns home with Damion DeAsharte, her mate and main competitor, they find their country in dire straits. Vile sorcerers and their beastmen roam the land, killing and ravaging at will and the Gray Order has almost been wiped out.

With only two very young fire warriors to help them, the ducal beastmasters vow to liberate their country, defeat the Darkhamorth and bring peace between their competing Houses of Gry and Asharte.

Will even their mighty feline alter egos be strong enough to survive against the dark magic of the Revenaunts minions?

Vavaun is a tale of struggle, friendship and bravery against an enemy who plans total annihilation.
It is a stand-alone Shadow of the Revenaunt-adventure, running parallel to book 3, Ordelanden, and it starts after the final battle at the Owan Abai in Zihaen.

 Damion was about to follow when he saw a catman on the first floor gallery. He roared and ran for the stairs. The beast retired into a room and Damion followed. Too late he saw the room hadn’t been empty. Five of the spotted beastmen waited for him, swords at the ready. Fool! Damion thought. Now what? He crouched, tail swinging, while his brain sought the best way to get them all. The catmen circled him, growling softly, as they followed his moves intently. Then he sprang. His heavy body crashed into two of the beasts, sending them sprawling. The others jumped aside, hissing furiously before they joined the fray. Biting and clawing, Damion fought, yet five catmen were too much, even for him, and they managed to pin him to the floor. He snarled, snapping at their throats, but they stayed just out of reach. Then feet pounded in the corridor, and Bartram’s voice sounded close by. A flaming sword flashed overhead and a catman screamed in agony. With renewed energy, Damion used the confusion to get from under the clawing bodies. He got his teeth around a striped catman’s neck and shook him like a kitten. Then he slammed the beast hard against the wall and heard its bones crack. He turned around to see another beast die, riddled by burning arrows, while Bartram skewered the last one. Damion returned to his own form. Panting, he stared at the carnage around him. ‘Damn!’ he said. ‘I was trying to be clever. Didn’t work out well. Thanks, you two.’‘Pleasure,’ Bartram said. ‘Luckily we had seen you go in. We were a bit delayed on the way, but not too much.’His sister grinned. ‘Don’t tell Uwella; she’ll have your hide. In very thin slices.’‘Yes,’ Damion said ruefully. ‘And she’d be right.’
