Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 41: The Onyx Stone

by Will Spero

Ambush   The acceptance of the challenge came quickly—too quickly, as far as Pa’hu was concerned. Vergud certainly did not take the time to consult with the clan elders. It was possible he had anticipated the challenge, but even Pa’hu had not considered rocca an option until he had learned that Azren’s armies were on […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 40: In Search of a King

by Will Spero

In Search of a King   The rain started up without warning, pelting the leaves and trees, reminding Daen of the sound of waves spraying the sails of a ship. It was days like today he missed the coast of Nalesc. They waited inside the forest’s edge for Zeph’s return, past the range of droplets […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 39: The Onyx Stone

by Will Spero

The Onyx Stone     Three days. That’s how long it had been since Raven had met up with the kobold Gyste and his strange alabaster-skinned companions. And still I search for answers. Gyste kept hidden the secrets he knew, revealing only what was blatantly obvious. Yes, the Afflicted One was planning to make a […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 38: The Many Eyes of the Ilpith

by Will Spero

The Many Eyes of the Ilpith     Mud and rocks swelled up from the ground, seemingly in slow motion, giving Cahrin time to choose between life and revenge. She skipped across the rising mound without regret or trepidation. Packed dirt climbed to the ceiling behind her, closing off escape, sealing her with her enemies. One […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 37: Northerner Alliances

by Will Spero

Northerner Alliances   Pa’hu paced from one end of the canvas tent to the other, thinking on all that had been accomplished since he had taken over the role of Schie Bura of the Capkecka clan. Four of the five Northerner clans had been united under his leadership, some by diplomacy, others by subjugation. Petty […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 36: Song of the Gems

by Will Spero

Song of the Gems   The sparrow came in tilted, favoring a wing, before transforming into a one-handed dogar. Daen didn’t wait for him to catch his breath. “Well?” he prompted as loudly as he dared. “Not much to tell,” Selgrin replied, stretching the arm he injured in the fight with Haril. After several precautionary […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 35: The Hunted

by Will Spero

The Hunted     For as long as Raven could remember, a constant cold emanated from his core that even a southern summer could not warm. But tonight’s unforgiving chill was a reminder that things could be worse. Already, his cheeks and nose felt as if they were made of frozen water and would shatter […]

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 […]
