I’ve been gone for a while (though with good reason). It’s time to get back in the saddle.
THE BLACK TOWER, Book 3 of the Skullborn Trilogy, is my next release, scheduled for this November. Needless to say, the book is a bit…dark.
Several of the pivotal events in many of the character’s lives in this series occurred at the Bloodspeaker death camps, where misguided Jlantrian Dawn Knights tortured and killed captive spell casters they believed were naturally evil and beyond redemption.
Ijanna Taivorkan, the Dream Witch, is one of the only survivors from the camps, and she recalls the horrors vividly…just as she recalls the man she’d met there several years before her quest would bring her into contact with him again.
Azander Dane had been one of those Knights. He’d walked around the cage with the others, stepped through folds of grime and vomit and the stink of utter hopelessness. He looked at the prisoners with mirror-like eyes. No one turned from his gaze, and no one showed any fear. His boots slurped in and out the mud with wet shucking sounds, and for a few moments that was the only thing Ijanna heard.
The sky was as blue as bruised flesh. Thick raindrops struck the crumbling roof and splashed to the ground outside. The trees surrounded the camp like the bars of a vast cage.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
