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 […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 17: The Past, the Present, and Azren

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 […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 16: Cavern of the Undead

by Will Spero

Cavern of the Undead   “Are you sure you told him that Zeph Greymoon is here?” Zeph asked the lord’s advisor for the third time. The advisor had a dull name, Trudor, and an irritating habit of twisting his black, pointy mustache between a thumb and index finger. They had been asked to wait in […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 15: Soothsayer

by Will Spero

Soothsayer   Daen was keeping a strict watch when the next assassin arrived. “Three days.” Zeph came into the light sporting a new-looking, though similarly styled, black leather jerkin and pants. A gash marked his brow, and his movements seemed stiff as a pole. “Three days for what?” inquired Daen. Is Tendrils of Darkness new […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 14: The Gems of Tazanjia

by Will Spero

The Gems of Tazanjia   “Sel,” Copius admonished. “It’s one thing to rescue him from Kynar,” said Selgrin, “but I’m not sleeping anywhere near him.” Less than ten strides away sat Raven, seemingly oblivious to their conversation. Lady Abigail put her hands on her hips. “You want to go back to the road and look […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 13: Servant of the Afflicted One

by Will Spero

Servant of the Afflicted One   Daen was drifting back to sleep when a faint thud interrupted the monotonous chirping of crickets. His hand tightened around the pommel of his axe. He detected a light scraping of steel—a weapon leaving its scabbard. He leapt up, twisting toward the sound, his arm already in a throwing […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 12: Back Entrance

by Will Spero

Betrayal   At least I’m not dead was Selgrin’s first thought. The pounding of his head and the constant jostling made him wonder if it was indeed a blessing. He opened one eye. The first thing he saw was his own arm ending in a stump. Not surprising, he was back to being himself. Selgrin […]
