Sparring with a ‘God’ (excerpt, part 3 of 3): Reflection

Part three. Here’s part 1 & part 2. This section of the chapter needs the most work for when I come back to it after the first draft is completed. Thanks for reading! Chapter 21 (first draft) Islos Part 3 of 3 (continued) Cirrus was resting in the shade of the ship’s sails, resting and watching as […]

Sparring with a ‘God’ (excerpt, part 2 of 3): Plenty more to learn

Part two! Here was part 1. Again, this is Cirrus (the Soldier POV), having just started his practice match with the Aquari 5th Lieutenant, Arturus Mariner. I’m hoping even though it is just the first draft, that I was able to give somewhat of a clear visualization of how the characters were moving. Thanks for reading! […]

Sparring with a ‘God’: First look at Cirrus (excerpt, part 1 of 3)

Here is a new, long-awaited excerpt from FotS: Book 1. Here we have Cirrus (the Soldier POV). He is taking a ship, on his way to his ascension ceremony with a legend as escort, Arturus Mariner. Overall, it is an action-packed chapter. Again, this is from the original draft. I only read through it once […]

POLL!: Which POV character’s story are you most interested in reading about?

The introductions are done, and I have posted a short summary for each of my nine POV characters for FOTS. You can find them all listed here. Each summary is very short. With enough votes, it may help me see which of my characters are more interesting to readers. For those who like voting on […]

POV: “Captain”

The Captain is one of the banished people, who now live on the south-east island of shame. It has been almost 500 years since the so-called Holy Ones were last seen on the mainland that the other nations now disrespectfully call Pentia. The name insinuates five peoples existence in the world, when in fact there […]

POV: “Academic”

The Academic lives in the great, shared, Holy City of Penta with her father, a Polarian councilman. For his young and bright, intelligent daughter, he has privately hired a prominent Kanari scholar to enhance her learning. It is a controversial move, as scholars are known to dabble with philosophical topics that extend far beyond the […]

First look at Rees (short excerpt)

This is another short excerpt, this time showing the beginning of the story of the Archer POV, Rees. This is taken from chapter 7 of book one, and it is in first draft form (i.e. limited figurative language and only basic descriptions). It is far from great but I just want to show a little […]

POV: “Soldier”

The Soldier is a gifted talent, and has done well for himself. He has been in a few battles, performed exceptionally, and has received attention to the point of gaining his own king’s favour. From the outside his life appears to be great. Yet besides all of the positive happenings in his professional life, he […]

POV: “Pilgrim”

The Pilgrim is a young acolyte from the northern ‘new’ city of Pius. She spends much of her time being a voice of reason, trying her best to watch out for the two pranksters she has grown up with since childhood. Together with these best friends, the Pilgrim sets out on a spiritual adventure around […]

POV: “Senator”

The Senator spends most of his days in the Solan Senate, arguing and bickering with a hundred other old men on political issues. These days, one issue stands out above the rest. Their new neighbours to the western peninsula are pushing them to a point where violence may be the only option. These newcomers search […]

POV: “Archer”

The archer is pure of heart, an innocence born of inexperience due to a relatively sheltered and quiet past. It is thus unfortunate that her keen eye and skill with a bow did not go unnoticed, since it has brought her into the ranged ranks of the Talonian forces. Coming from a secluded city in […]
