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.
The continuing saga of the forces of Righteousness. More of a focus on the Immortals of the tale, though a few favourites are here. *NOTE* For those of you well versed in the ways of Fleu du Elgoria, Captain Aries' name has been changed to Captain Nauthiz, so as to avoid any cheesy symbolism!
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.
A failed attempt one the force of unity, and maybe a little treachery?
Four old friends embark on a child hood journey in a grown up world and although they leave with less than they hoped for they stumble upon something far more valuable; two kings come to a monumental decision;
The exile is made to be and the Captain takes a symbolic step forward in his grasp of power; an eventful chapter topped off by a dream by Tashab, where one of the story's major themes is introduced.
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 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 chapter plays largely on the loving relationship of the King and Captain, and is very important to Yanaton II's character.
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!
