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 […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 24: A Discussion About Death

by Will Spero

A Discussion About Death   Zeph found the Great Hall not nearly as grand as its name. It was more of a mezzanine, with doors on each side and a single long table set near the wall. He had the feeling a Greater Hall lie somewhere in the castle, but given the limited number of […]

The King of Broken Stones   The sun was drooping toward the horizon when the crumbling spires of Einor, the City of the Gods which once epitomized the wealth of all of Embia, came into view.

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 22: Declaration of War

by Will Spero

Declaration of War   “I’m still hearing that incessant bellowing,” Zeph rubbed his temples. After spending the night being noisily ferried across the desolate plains, he was afraid that sound would haunt his dreams for many nights to come. Sel responded hoarsely, “It’s a natural welanob instinct to bellow.” “But couldn’t you’ve taken a break?” […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 21: Transformation

by Will Spero

Transformation   Sel might have made straight for the main gates of Feralintero had he not dearly needed the yiltoline cloth he had ordered. He supposed the detour might throw the guards off their trail. They burst into the shop at a brisk run. The only other customer in the store gaped at the commotion […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 20: A Secret Meeting

by Will Spero

A Secret Meeting   Selgrin wandered the nearby streets, avoiding the eyes that followed him from seemingly every window and doorway. He had almost forgotten how you couldn’t get from the residential areas to the taverns without going through the merchant quarters first. It made getting from point A to point C a real pain […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 19: A Well-Guarded Pawn

by Will Spero

A Well-Guarded Pawn    It was the midday when the summons finally came. Had it not, Raven had been prepared to take matters into his own hands. He crossed the room past the desk and the uneaten slice of honey bread the monk had brought him the prior evening. He scoffed at being treated like […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 18: Return of the Unforgiven

by Will Spero

Return of the Unforgiven   “Feralintero was once the greatest city of trade within a thousand leagues,” Sel said. “Of course, the dogar are natural merchants. Before the Great War, our caravans would travel to all the major cities trading wares.” Since their departure, Daen found there was little else Sel wanted to talk about […]

by Will Spero

The Past, the Present, and Azren   It had been two days since their arrival at Duradune, and already Cahrin felt back to her old self. Well, almost. She glanced in the mirror. The color had returned to her face. Her energy was improving, and in her own unbiased assessment, she was in a very […]
