Now that VAMPIRE DOWN is finally out of my hair, let’s get back to my current WIP: THE BLACK TOWER, the conclusion to the Skullborn Trilogy, which is the first in an arc of trilogies that take place on the fantasy world of Malzaria.
If you’ve read CITY OF SCARS and PATH OF BONES you know that Dane, Ijanna and a whole bunch of other people wind up in a heap of trouble in the ruined city of Corinth, where several parties have converged to battle for control of a portal which leads to a very dark place: Chul Gearog, the Black Tower, once the Blood Queen’s citadel, now a reliquary of black magic and evil power. As the novel opens, the black giant Kruje — a deposed prince, outlaw, and ally of the fallen knight Azander Dane — is still in the city watching the conflict unfold.
Blasts of fire and electricity scoured the atmosphere. The streets were rife with conflict everywhere he turned, and it hadn’t taken long after Dane had gone on ahead for the fighting to find Kruje. A few of Chairos’ mercenaries had died by the giant’s hand, as had a pair of Razorcats. The smell of fear and burning bodies lay heavy on the wind.
Kruje looked out on the rubble-hewn streets. Blocks of Galladorian marble lay half-buried in sand thick with thousands of fire-scorched bones, the remains of Drage who’d been incinerated when the Voss had detonated an armada of Bloodnaughts to destroy the corrupt human empire some thirty years past. The stifling heat dulled his senses as he rested his back against a building wall, and Kruje wiped a thick sheen of sweat from his face. His black muscles tensed with anticipation while he moved deeper into the shadows, feeling like a bit of a coward as he heard another Razorcat go roaring by outside.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
