“An Honest Bet” Cover – Teaser Tuesday

I’ve been working on the Kingslayer’s novel for a while, and missed the dragons (they don’t feature much in the novel). So I’ve decided to take a little break and write this standalone short story.

It follows Tharia, a Verdure Dragon, as she tries to lead a quiet life in a small village pretending to be a druid. Unfortunately like most Toivoans she finds that peace and quiet are not something they are made for.

The story should be available some time in November. If you’d like to be notified sign up for updates below (right sidebar).

Dragons, the Eons of Promise – Folklore Friday

Dragons have always been the outsiders amongst all the Eons, as they were the only Power not made by the Creator. As he finished forming Eonika, he called in the dragons from beyond the White Void and gave them the honour and burden of leading the war against the Hollow that surrounded his creation.

When the dragons came to Eonika they brought something with them from their home world – an artefact called the Source. Now only legends remain about that mystical item, but all the myths agree on one thing – it was an object of immense power and what the dragons fed on.

Although originally there were nine dragon lines only five are know to this day, the Faithful Ones. The other four are only known by their common name, the Traitors, for they betrayed the Creator’s trust by stealing the Source for themselves and fleeing beyond the White Void. Some legends claim they aligned themselves with the Hollow, while others have them simply abandon the Creator’s cause and disappear never to return.

A Mother Scorned – Sample

This is an excerpt from the beginning of “A Mother Scorned” short story.

The Third Era

Year 976

The Interior Ocean had not been kind to them. The dwarven shver-ship was the size of a floating fortress, one of the biggest transport vessels in the world, yet even this solid-built behemoth was thrown around like a toy by the recent storms. The crew, at least the few that had to stay on deck, were relentlessly flogged by wind and rain. On the few occasions they accidentally drifted into the Teeming Sea, they were also hit by storms of fire. The first one took them by surprise—it nearly melted the iron outer shell of the ship and severely burned a few members of the crew. They lost Malghar and his brother in that storm.

The Known Eons – Folklore Friday

Every type of Eon is connected with a one of the Powers. This is why although only seven Eons are known there are speculations about potentially three more that would be aligned with the remaining Powers.

The known Eons are:

Stars – the Eons of Law

Stars are known as the guardians of destiny and fundamental laws. All mortals (with rare exceptions) have their own Star which holds their destiny.

Angels – the Eons of Miracles

Although they represent  creation and the exultation that follows such acts most of the ones still left in the world devote themselves to researching ways of rejoining the Creator, who has long left the world.

Wildlings and Giants – the Eons of Possibilities and Magnitude

These two are an intersting case as they represent two aspects of the same power of greed and frolicking – Wildlings in Azure and Giants in Crimson.

Daemons – the Eons of Power

The essence of the Daemons lies in their inability to satiate their lust for power. They will do anything and everything to increase their might and gain more power. They are said to be able to break any restrictions or limitations.

Dragons – the Eons of Promise

Dragons are known for their affinity with words and knowledge. The promise refers to the vow they made to the Creator of the world – to protect his Creation, at all cost.

Gods – the Eons of Order

They are the only Eons with the right to meddle with the mortals after the Pact of Powers. Mortals who have blossomed when blessed by their God’s Love or burned scorched by the God’s Anger.

Beasts

Beasts are considered to be the most horrifying of all Eons. So horrifying in fact, that the Power they serve so far remains unnamed. Just mentioning the name of a Beast could bring harm to the person using it, hence studies have been sparse.
