Tendrils of Darkness — Epilogue

by Will Spero

Epilogue   With No Man’s Land finally behind them, Pa’hu let out a long whoop of elation from deep within his gut. This was echoed by more than fifty thousand Northerners, a sound that pierced the crisp, cool air like one of their feathered arrows. At his side were Cawa, his personal beliei, and Vergud, […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 50: Final Confrontation

by Will Spero

Final Confrontation   Years of sentinel training had taught Daen that there was only one replacement for careful planning and patience—dumb luck. They would need plenty of it to get through today. No sooner had they left the sea of encampments behind than a single rider came into view. It was too dark for him […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 49: Secrets Revealed

by Will Spero

Secrets Revealed   Circling Copius, the owlbear appeared to loosen up, taking long, thunderous strides. He dared not get back within close quarters of the beast; his still-throbbing back was a reminder of that. He shifted his feet and readied himself for the next altercation. Darkness had set in, and only a handful of torches […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 48: Uncomfortable Questions

by Will Spero

Uncomfortable Questions   “This is Prince Peldrin’s tent, not King Reginald’s,” said the sentry. Daen had assumed the giant tent in middle of the royal pavilion would be what they were looking for. “My apologies,” he said, starting away. “Hey,” the guard called after him, “where’s your palrock?” Is Tendrils of Darkness new to you?

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 47: Misdirection

by Will Spero

Misdirection   “Too many moving parts,” Sel grumbled under his breath as he edged his horse along the road. At least, that’s what his father would have said. As a tinkerer of sorts, he believed the simpler, the better. Selgrin couldn’t agree more. Take this plan of Daen’s. As a whole it had merit, but […]

by Will Spero

A Precarious Plan   “Look who I brought,” Zeph announced, arriving on horseback with a darkly cloaked figure Cahrin recognized at once. “I sort of saved his life—and he, mine.” Selgrin groaned. “Raven!” Copius stood up to give greeting. “It’s g-good to have you back.” Is Tendrils of Darkness new to you?

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 45: Schie Kalro

by Will Spero

Schie Kalro   It took three more days to climb the mountainside where the Rulakon made their home, days that would have been better spent marching the clans toward Asormo. Azren would not welcome the delay, though Pa’hu could hardly care. He’d come to dislike Azren and his minions almost as much as the ghasiv. […]

by Will Spero

Categories:Book Club

The Start of a War     “You see, it all started last fall,” Biltrin began. The others formed a circle around him. Zeph scooted in—he always did love a good story. “There was a growing worry among the merchants with the number of caravan raids going on.” “Most of the Western Kingdoms’ wealth comes […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 43: The Crow’s Message

by Will Spero

The Crow’s Message     Raven had expected a death sentence. What he got was his own bulstan keeper: an imposing warden who watched over him even during his sleep, never more than a dozen steps away. No longer was Raven a guest. He was trapped, unable to leave the confines of the campsite. If […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 42: Wolf Encounter

by Will Spero

Wolf Encounter   Zeph was beginning to think Biltrin had taken one too many knocks to the head. Who goes charging off alone into a pack of blood hungry wolves, anyway? It was always the quiet ones that ended up foaming at the mouth—and when Biltrin did talk, it was about that soldier’s code of […]
