Dark Paladin, Book 2 by Vasily Mahanenko

The Quest
by Vasily Mahanenko

The book is going to be released June 29, 2017

“MAY EVERYONE PRESENT bear witness that I swear to follow, to the best of my knowledge and ability, the following oath:
Consider the one who taught me the laws of my class to be my mentor, share my wealth with him and help him in his endeavors; consider all Paladins my brothers, and whenever possible come to their aid without prior arrangement and without reward; convey lessons and teachings verbally to the young Paladins who are bound by the obligations and oath by the laws of the class, but to no one else.
Strive for the benefit of my class to the extent of my strength, knowledge and ability, refraining from inflicting any harm and injustice to my class. I shall, honestly and forever, transfer the excess of my personal resources, in the amount of ten percent, for the needs of the class. Whatever dwelling I enter, I shall enter as a guest, for I shall know no other home than the Citadel of my class.
Whenever I see or hear that with respect to my class which should not be disclosed, I shall keep silent and treat that thing as a secret. May I who follow the oath steadfastly receive good fortune in the Game and glory with all Paladins for eternity; and the one who violates it or whose oath is false may suffer the opposite. So be it!”

Prologue, or a Dirigible and a Bit of Fire

SMOKE AND MIRRORS are an illusionist's most trusted assistants. They are the precise factor that allows those deceivers to remake reality and force their audience to believe in the nonexistent. By no stretch of the imagination do they use unlawful magic or wizardry, so reviled by our enlightened society. You see, smoke and mirrors are the simplest of tools. They merely create the necessary atmosphere and give the honorable public an excuse to exercise their sense of imagination.
Yes! The crux of the matter is imagination. It is the conscious mind's very ability to fill in the missing details that allows illusionists to entertain and bewilder their mouth-breathing patrons. After all, we are often glad to be deceived, having mistaken our wishes for reality...

Michael Atamanov - interview

To celebrate the upcoming publication of the second book of The Dark Herbalist series we made a big interview with Michael Atamanov. We thought it's a shame that readers over the ocean know nothing about author of the bestelling series (Perimeter Defense and The Dark Herbalist). So, we're making it up to you right away.

According to your Amazon bio, you were born in the city of Grozny: the capital of the Chechen Republic in the south of Russia. According to my calculations, you came to Moscow around 1991 or 1992. Is that correct?

That's right. As a runner-up in several national chemistry competitions, I was admitted to Moscow University without having to pass the entrance exams. They had just created a new Faculty of Material Science with only thirty freshman vacancies. In the end, they actually admitted more applicants on the condition that every seven weeks they were going to expel the person with the lowest ratings until they had the right number of students. I found it very stimulating, of course. We had two international chemistry competition winners and lots of runners-up, myself included. Quite a few of them had been studying at the Moscow University Preparatory School so their math skills were absolutely out of this world. I could never dream of anything like that. And yes, they did begin to eliminate people. Every few weeks they kicked someone out. Plus they expelled really a lot of freshmen based on their first mid-term exam results. They only kept those who were really prepared to do the work.
