Well, this is my first update for my book in a long while. I've been focusing much lately on writing short stories and academic articles, but I'm still working on this, my baby, for sure! Within these pages the Protectors of Righteousness arrive amid an air of magnificence to Sardonia, their safe haven whilst they regroup and rebuild for an assault on Anthra. For those who read this story, or who have, please note that Hans' (King of the Elves) name has been changed to Rowan.
Prophecy and bizarre weather; Powerful Magic and secrets revealed; corrupt lords and - yes, that is right - death. I hope you enjoy & all comments are welcome.
Yanaton II begins his training, while laying the foundations down for war and a greater conflict; Hans and Everett face a heart wrenching decision that must be made.
This is a short story based on the events of my other short story posted here, Let the Darkness Take Hold, which actually got a mod's choice itself :) Its my first attempt at a first person story, and I had fun doing it. I hope you enjoy!
It is my one goal as a writer to be able to express my thoughts and feelings that are so vivid and powerful to me so that whoever may read it can experience it first hand themselves. Through the course of writing this novel, which has so far run the course of five years, I have grown close to my characters, for to me they are indeed real. I have felt their pains and have grasped their ideals and have tried to write them legibly on paper. I shamelessly admit that I got tears in my eyes when I wrote this - and still do today - so much joy and impact (to me at least) does it contain. Being the author of this book I am in a sense a medium between this world and that of the one in my story. And being the author I know just how important the major event of this Prologue is to Tashab. Because of the emotion involved in it for me, it is my favourite piece, or chapter, I've ever written. If I accomplish anything it is to imbue to the reader this feeling of joy, for indeed for Tashab the word 'joy' does little to express her feelings. Needless to say, this following Prologue, the introduction to the second part of my story, is the most elated scene in the story so far to me. My ultimate goal is that it is for you too.
Very important chapter in the development of the book, especially of Gautan's character. Sorry if it is too long, but Gautan - when he gets going - just LOVES to talk.
Very short, but very important, chapter inspired by track #7 of the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. Buy it. Listen to it. Worship it. Could this portent perhaps have anything to do with the title of part II, The Dominion of a Prince? I wonder.... I am particularily interested how this effected you, especially the final paragraph. Did you feel this man was truly Evil? Did you feel the last paragraph was particularily powerful? This is a (hopeful) case of high potency in a small dose, so I want it be as effective as powerful, any advice welcome.
A divine gathering graces the bastard child; The great revelation of a godess and the restoration of a princess; mingled with the Protectors at sea.
A scheming warrior steps into action; a royal funeral followed closely by a new king; a struggle with nature and one awesome fight with an immortal;
This is a short story that I had sent in as a submission, but was rejected. There are a few grammatical errors, therefore the rejection, but I think you should be able to understand the gyst of the story. At this point in time I'm not interested in editing it, but maybe I will end up doing it. Its a wee dark tale of grief and loss and the path of revenge taken.
A Evil betrayel, a new found interest, and a sly little fellow
The start of the actually story, from the introduction of the Prologue. This and every chapter following is the final postings of the chapters. The major characters are introduced and some early action takes place, I hope you enjoy!
A dream - nightmare or prophecy?; their case is pleaded for at the Brotherhood - but will they get the help they so desperately need?; the stately Majeorn is finally met, and the inside of Irongate explored; a little tift between Tashab and her half-brother and some disheartening news from the Southland; A fateful run-in with Elgoria's two leaders
The continuing saga of Anthra. The trio embark on a mission that'll take longer than any had planned; A strange dream will usher the Princess into a new reality; the death of vital character will throw Elgoria into chaos as the truth of Tashab's existence is hinted.
This is the intro to my full story, called 'Fleu du Elgoria: For the Love of a Princess'. The title means Life of Elgoria. I wrote this (the Prologue) after watching a program on ghosts and hautings. Its personally one of my favourites and I feel its a great way to start the story and introduce the antagonist. What do you think?
The final chapters of Part I; a divine promise; a new world; the most tragic of deaths; a dim light, ever fleeting, yet promising to return.
