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 […]

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 […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 23: The King of Broken Stones

by Will Spero

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. Zeph brought his horse to a standstill and gazed upon a city he found far from awe-inspiring. The others […]

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 […]
