''BladeOfTheFlame'' is a trilogy by Tim Waggoner chronicling the adventures of Diran Bastiaan, a priest of the Church of the Silver Flame in the {{Eberron}} Campaign Setting. It consists of:

* ''Thieves of Blood''
* ''Forge of the Mindslayers''
* ''Sea of Death''

----
!!These books provide examples of:
* ActionGirl: Makala, Yvka, and come to think of it pretty much every female character ever given enough importance to have a name.
* AntiHero: Diran himself, and possibly Makala later
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Makala]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Diran and Makala in the backstory, and [[spoiler:Makala]] later
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Diran begins the series with only Ghaji by his side, and at the end everyone splits up, leaving Diran and Ghaji alone again.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: In the third book, the plan to create an army of Weresharks is foiled when a disgraced paladin Werewolf appears on the scene. He is subsequently bitten by an aforementioned wereshark and manages to become cursed AGAIN. Result? Weresharkwolf... or werewolfshark. One of the two anyways...
* SadisticChoice: Erdis Cai tries to pull one on Diran in the first book
* ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot: The books are good, but the author clearly didn't read the psionics rules. Any psionic character is basically treated as a {{Gamebreaker}} ([[CompletelyMissingThePoint Remember, you can only use a number of power points equal to or less than your Manifester Level, no more.]])
** Clearly Solus out-leveled the rest of the cast significantly, plus there's the whole issue of what a [[SuperPrototype psi-forged]] might be able to do in the first place.
* TakeAThirdOption: Diran's response to the above choice.
