The Sword and the Sunflower
From $4.99  


A father who lost his heart, a traveler who lost his love, and a girl who lost everything.
In an epic fantasy set 1,000 years from now, the world resembles the Dark Ages of Medieval times rather than the future, and a father who is grieving the death of his daughter takes one last job—to assassinate a man he’s never met. But when he meets the young daughter of his intended victim, he ends up taking her under his wing and they are both taken on an epic journey.
This fantasy adventure explores the aftermath of catastrophe, in a new world distant yet familiar to us. It questions duty, family and challenges beliefs—all through the eyes of three strangers who have no business coming together. 

Amira (The Sword and the Sunflower, Book 2)
From $4.99  

In Amira, Book 2 and the epic conclusion of The Sword and the Sunflower, Stojan and Anastazja find they have become the two most wanted people in Amira. Running for their lives, they make their way across the vast country as the wonders of Amira and the Old World are revealed. But upon reaching their destination, they discover a horrible secret: in order to save their homeland, they must bring an end to the reign of the saints.

Praise for The Sword and the Sunflower, Amira, and Mark Bradford

“I couldn’t recommend The Sword and the Sunflower enough. It forces the reader to question, grow and learn to question the world around them and the world living within themselves.” ~BookShelfMuse 

"The Sword and the Sunflower books force the reader to question existentialism, world structures, cultural development and religious fervor. It's not just about a coming of age of the individuals we meet, but of entire populaces and the world at large." ~Goodreads Review

“With each step of the journey, Mark Bradford keeps his audience entertained while also on the edge of their chairs. The connections between the characters were rich and vital to the story.  The story is very poignant and moving.”

"Filled with emotional depth. Very captivating! The Sword and the Sunflower and Amira took me out of my living room and into another world." ~Amazon Review
