After an embarrassing delay from the original publication date (first-time publication is a little more time-consuming than I thought – oops), IN CROWS’ CLAWS has been published and is available for sale!
IN CROWS’ CLAWS is a fantasy novella written in an epistolary (letter) format and set in the fantasy-fiction world of Fyrndell, a place of ancient powers, myriad races, and untold secrets. It is a world where gods may or may not exist, where heroes are few and far between, and where technology progresses at a haphazard pace.
IN CROWS’ CLAWS tells the story of two opposing armies as they race across the continent to a recently-unearthed desert tomb believed to be the final resting place of the goddess Konia. Read the letters sent home from Ahri Vestesson, crowkeeper for the Order of the Orthodox Knights of Fyrndell’s Crusade Army, as he wrestles with matters of faith and purpose while longing to return home to his betrothed. The letters of Marshal Taves Khest, veteran general of the Imperial Expedition Force of the Mhedorian Empire, will demonstrate his duty and ability while he leads his army to and through the desert to claim the glory of capturing the Tomb of Konia in the name of his empress.
But the desert holds many secrets and even more dangers still, for both armies will encounter a brutish and violent warband sworn to the service of Tavradyss, God-Prince of Conflict, and led by the even more vicious Nextiarc.
I invite you to join Ahri and his companions on a treacherous journey where faith will be questioned, hearts will break, and desert sands will be stained crimson with blood.
