Original novels

These two novels go together, in that the second is a direct sequel to the first. They are long (300,000 words each.)

This is the first time I've posted these in any form.


People of Twilight

Word count: c.300,000 words
Rating: PG-13 ish. Darkness and angst. Some violence. No sex.
Genre: Angst. Character-heavy plot.
Summary and notes: This is an original fantasy novel. I aimed to take some of the cliches of fantasy, and give them a new twist. It is the tale of a kingdom without a king, and of the young man who is born to be that king. It is the tale of a sword in a stone. It is the tale of a young hero, and his older mentor. It is the tale of a man from one world, who in transported to another world - a world under threat; a world that only he can save.

But it is also the tale of a former kingdom that has moved on and no longer wants a king. It is a tale of magic, but in a world where magic is derided as superstition. It is the story of a world that does not know that it needs saving.

And it is the story of a mentor who is so jealous of his protege's achievements that he could end up proving more deadly than any enemy.
