Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 34: The Price of a Queen

by Will Spero

The Price of a Queen     Selgrin had decided long ago that wings were a true marvel of nature, powerful enough to propel a creature at tremendous speeds, yet delicate and precise. Even the tiniest twitch could cause a change in directions. It was unfortunate winged creatures were the most difficult to study for […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 33: Troll

by Will Spero

Troll     It seemed like a good idea at the time, launching his throwing daggers at the troll. Then again, when the Threshers had first appeared, his grand escape plan had involved swinging on a chandelier—he’d always wanted to do that. But on further reflection, the chandelier above them looked like it was having […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 32: Mountain of a Thousand Caves

by Will Spero

Mountain of a Thousand Caves     “Now what?” Elandra thrust the question at Haril like a sword stroke. Haril winced. “You see where it looks like two beady eyes next to one another? Right above that, there’s an opening.” Daen followed Haril’s gaze up the boulder-filled slope, illuminated only by the brightness of the […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 31: The King’s Decision

by Will Spero

The King’s Decision     “Zeph, my friend, is this not a wondrous castle?” said Demetrius. “Perhaps somewhat dated in furnishings, and the food is altogether bland, but the company—the company is incomparable.” Zeph had been roaming the halls all morning hoping to run into Kreeb. Instead, he’d come face to face with the one […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 30: Spider Sect

by Will Spero

Spider Sect     Renaldo and Elandra were already seated with the king when Daen joined their table. Though it was morning, His Majesty started on the ale early, remarking he needed a drink to knock out his pounding headache. Fortunately, he was still very much sober when the topic of Azren was brought up. […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 29: Raiding Party

by Will Spero

Raiding Party     It was the type of night that made even the hungriest of animals take shelter. An oppressive chill smothered all warmth, the sky called for a blizzard, and snowflakes were already swirling in the wind. A young Cahrin savored one last stroll before bedtime while the rest of the Capcecka Clan […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 28: News of the Queen

by Will Spero

News of the Queen     “Is there a reason we’re so near the city gate?” Selgrin asked as they entered a large square thick with city folk. He had been hoping Copius might find a quieter location to work. The rain had stopped, leaving a chilly, overcast morning. They’d hurried out of the inn […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 27: Norweegee’s Agony

by Will Spero

Norweegee’s Agony     Cahrin opened her eyes. It was early—too early. Not even dawn yet. Norweegee sat nearby on the bed eyeing her. He wanted something. She could feel it in her core. She sensed Norweegee’s state of mind a great deal lately. Just the other day, she had woken up famished only to […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 26: Late-Night Encounters

by Will Spero

Late-Night Encounters   Zeph risked a furtive poke around the corner. Queen Pandare and the man in gray were gone. So strange. Only hours ago, she had told him she was opposed to an alliance with Azren. But in light of what he just overheard, he wasn’t so sure. He dismissed any notion of following […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 25: City in Mourning

by Will Spero

City in Mourning   Selgrin couldn’t help wondering if Camere had been struck by the plague. Black flags hung upon its massive outer walls, and a zombie-like procession of city folk shuffled though the streets in dark colors with darker faces. Even the guards displayed an outward somberness, when they weren’t scowling at Sel as […]
