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. […]

The Apocalypse Bell by Angela N. Hunt

by Jon Snow

Up for release in July 2016, we have The Apocalypse Bell by Angela N. Hunt, which is apparently the latest in a loosely related series called Curse and Quanta. To be honest, I don’t actually know how this book fits into the series itself, because I had never heard of the series before I was […]

Tales from the Flat Earth by Tanith Lee

by Jon Snow

I read the first three books of this series last March in the omnibus Lords of Darkness (now out of print) and I loved it immensely. It wasn’t love at first sight though. It was more of an intimate kind of love, one that slowly develops over time, rough patches here and there, perhaps moments […]

Review: Steel, Blood and Fire by Allan Batchelder

by Jon Snow

My interest in Steel, Blood and Fire peaked when Allan became active on the BestFantasyBooks forum and several of the members read and rated it highly. I received one of five eBooks the author gave freely to the first five who replied to his message. Nonetheless I’ll give a honest review. This book revolves primarily around […]

Review: The Great Way by Harry Connolly

by Ben

The Great Way trilogy is a classic fantasy story, with a whole bunch of unique elements. But first off, you should know one thing. This trilogy was funded through Kickstarter, and I am very happy it was funded. I have liked Harry Connollys writings since forever, and my overall impression of these books are also […]

Kindle Scout

by Ben

Guest blog by Will Spero Scouting the Next “Diamond in the Rough” First coined in a 17th century play, the saying takes its origins from the process of cutting and polishing what resembles rock salt and turning it into a coveted diamond. But in the world of books, it’s even more magical. It’s discovering the […]
