Every once in a while I get a bug to do something a little different. You know what I mean. This time I decided to build on a world that won me an award from the Writer’s of the Future Contest a few years back. A world of magic, floating cities, and best of all- none of the traditional fantasy creatures or tropes. No magic swords here friends…though I am working on a book where the fella walks around with a sword that wants to kill him…enough about that.
I present to you a little bit of a ghost story. The Children of Never. Out today and ready for your welcoming arms. Enjoy.
The war priests of Andrak have protected the world from the encroaching darkness for generations. Stewards of the Purifying Flame, the priests stand upon their castle walls each year for 100 days. Along with the best fighters, soldiers, and adventurers from across the lands, they repulse the Omegri invasions.
But their strength wanes and evil spreads.
Lizette awakens to a nightmare, for her daughter has been stolen during the night. When she goes to the Baron to petition aid, she learns that similar incidents are occurring across the duchy. Her daughter was just the beginning. Baron Einos of Fent is left with no choice but to summon the war priests.
Brother Quinlan is a haunted man. Last survivor of Castle Bendris, he now serves Andrak. Despite his flaws, the Lord General recognizes Quinlan as one of the best he has. Sending him to Fent is his best chance for finding the missing children and restoring order. Quinlan begins a quest that will tax his strength and threaten the foundations of his soul.
The Grey Wanderer stalks the lands, and where he goes, bad things follow. The dead rise and the Omegri launch a plan to stop time and overrun the world. The duchy of Fent is just the beginning.
