Sebastian, Part 6

Aria hopped to the right to parry a blow from Weston's sword. With a peal, their blades danced apart, and Aria took a step back to reframe her position. “Good,” Weston said. “You have a bit of a natural touch for this, you know. You don't struggle to pick things up.” “It feels okay,” she... Continue Reading →


Casimir, Part 5

A makeshift brazier illuminated one side of the man’s face. Above the dark crevasse leading into the vale, the skull of a buck hung ominously, dead squirrels draping its antlers. The man shifted slightly, and the brazier revealed his face fully; the symbol for lightning stood out from his forehead, the carving less crude than... Continue Reading →

Alistair, Part 5

“Where is your lovely suitor?” Alistair asked, leaning his hip against the balcony railing. They stood on the palace steps overlooking Tiraspol, waiting for King Ezra of the Forest Realm and his son, Prince Ian, to ride up through the city. Not a single cloud marred the sky above, and the rush of the sea... Continue Reading →

Sebastian, Part 5

A bell tolled in the distance, signaling sundown and the closing of the gates—but the gates to Tower of the Moon would not close tonight. Aria took a deep breath as she scanned the endless legions spanning the jade grass of the Plains Realm. Tens of thousands of men lined up at the roots of... Continue Reading →

A Short Hiatus

We've made our way through part 4 for all tracks, so I'm taking a short break from the blog in the interest of getting some work done on The Shadow Throne. I also got a kitten, and my current cat hates his guts, so between fielding their arguments, we can only hope I'll make some... Continue Reading →

Casimir, Part 4

Casimir casually flicked his hand, and the marble cracked. He whispered again, and a chunk of the balcony skittered across the floor. With twitch of his fist, the stone disintegrated into a pile of dust. It did little to muffle the sound of Petra screaming an orgasm in the next room. He tried not to... Continue Reading →

Alistair, Part 4

“Come on,” Aria said gently, coaxing Alistair through the doors to her room. She had refused help from Daniil and Halar of the queensguard; they saw enough of Alistair’s antics without living through the clean up process, as well. She could hardly stand to think what they would say then. Aria kept Alistair talking the... Continue Reading →

Sebastian, Part 4

Aria slipped into her silk robe, relishing the crackling fire beside her as icy rain pummeled the window. Still, her stomach knotted with embarrassment, and she stared at her reflection for a while in the mirror. Her onyx hair fell over one shoulder in soft curls, and a glittering black clip gathered the bulk of... Continue Reading →

Casimir, Part 3

The shrine near the peak hummed with the energy of binding; Zoknas, the god of war, held a warhammer to the sky, his mouth open in a shout. Juniper trees framed his stone visage, and the little altar at his feet shone with the symbols for blood, honor, death, strength, and decay. Casimir plucked a... Continue Reading →
