Hi, both are no longer part of the series as they were withdrawn as author Michael B. Goodwin was found to have plagiarised other novels for the content of the two Casca stories. Under real threat of being sued (by amongst others the author of Rambo, Dave Morrell) the franchise owners withdrew both books and terminated Mr Goodwin’s contract.

Did you know that Goodwin apparently also wrote a series called Chronicles of Cain? This from Goodreads. Sound familiar?

“The powerful immortal, cast out of Eden by God – whose sharp sword is at the service of anyone who can command its respect…

Cain the Sufferer

Whose eyes betray his shame, but burn with deadly cold-fire, whose heart is a steel shield of ice.

Cain the Ultimate Warrior

Whose unequalled knowledge of warfare and ageless quest for world power leads him from one allegiance to another, but always battling those minions sent after him by the blackest, darkest god of them all, Lucifer.

Cain the Knight

The accursed immortal warrior Cain now wears the armor of a knight – but he calls no lord master. Some say he fought for gold. Others claim that he fights for vengeance. But all agree on one thing: The marked Cain battles like no other, and is the ultimate and mightiest warrior.

Now the immortal sufferer, returning from the bloodbath of the Crusades, rides through Europe seeking employment and hunting the traitors who betrayed him in the Holy Land. But his path crosses with that of a ravishingly seductive French noblewoman, along with a witch who makes him an offer that his flesh cannot not refuse. All the while an arch-enemy of the past, a deadly knight-turned-Pope, who secretly worships Lucifer, gives Cain a foe worthy of his cold steel and burning shame and hatred.
Accepting both their challenges, Cain bares his fabled sword, Cursebearer – to write his name in blood on the pages of history.”

All plagiarised. One of the Cain novels was going to be Goodwin’s third Casca novel before he was fired for plagiarising.

Yes, the Cain books are not covered by the Casca franchise so there is little than can be done, but the 2 Casca books he did write have been removed and will never see the light of day again.
