Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 8: Forbidden Valley

by Will Spero

Forbidden Valley   It had been a day and a half since they had left Yridark, and Daen still had no idea where they were going. Armed guards had chased them from the city. Rest periods were short and infrequent, and moods were less than cheerful. Exhaustion compounded worry—and there was plenty to be worried […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 7: Descent into Darkness

by Will Spero

Descent into Darkness   Copius fought the urge to close his eyes as the giant bird took off. All of Korinth sprawled before him, yet a part of him wanted to block it out and just hang on until the ride was over. Giant wings swept the air, yet still they dropped precipitously downward. He […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 6: Man in the Charcoal Cloak

by Will Spero

Man in the Charcoal Cloak   Zeph couldn’t believe he’d let Daen talk him into this. “You’re leaning too far forward,” he whispered, brushing Daen back into the shadows with his arm. “I am trained in detecting those who are hidden, not the other way around.” “There’s not a lot to it.

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 5: Council Decree

by Will Spero

Council Decree   As an Auburn monk in the Order of the One, Copius had been called a lot of things: fervent, dogmatic, a heretic, sometimes clumsy and naïve. But soon he expected to be named a hero. At the behest of the Council of the Alliance, Copius had been protecting a caravan heading to […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 4: Den of the Wretched

by Will Spero

Den of the Wretched   The place was seedy, even by Zeph’s standards. Teeming with the dregs of society, it was the type of place where they wouldn’t attract suspicion. Not that one would be careless discussing transgressions—you never knew who might be listening—but at least he wasn’t lulled by a false sense of security. […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 3: Grim Oath

by Will Spero

Grim Oath   “Norweegee,” called Cahrin. Where had the xaffel gone to now? It was just like him to disappear when it came time to clean. Master Ulfin had finished dinner and retired upstairs to his room. That meant no evening lesson for Cahrin, which was a welcome break. She had been training twelve hours […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 2: The Sentinel

by Will Spero

The Sentinel   Daen managed his establishment according to two rules. First, manners mattered. He treated all patrons as if they were guests instead of the deadbeat rabble they generally were. If his courtesy was not returned in kind, the guest would find himself bouncing off the dirt road outside. Second, he gave no preferential […]

Tendrils of Darkness Prologue and Chapter 1

by Will Spero

Raven clawed at the bare, unyielding ground. His fingers would more likely crack than the earth beneath them. Somehow he pushed himself up. Weak, dazed, it didn’t matter, he would continue until he collapsed—or until they caught up with him. Welcome to our inaugural installment of Tendrils of Darkness: Book 1 of The Black Trilogy. […]
