Chapter 6: Part 16 – Of Old Blood and Death

AmberHeader6-14Hate beat a steady pulse in Caolinn’s head, a hammer blow against the inside of her skull blanking out all other thought. It wasn’t directed at the asura, nor even the Inquest, but was an amorphous, formless thing. Pain had been directed against her people here, in this dark place, and that was enough to swell an answering darkness in her flesh.

There was fear, too. When she’d plunged the dormitory into shadow and turned to run, nothing but instinct had guided her. Perhaps there was some fragile tendril of shared memory resurfacing in her mind, a remnant of the Dream – or perhaps it was nothing but the aura of that room, the darkness and old blood and death.

Eternal Blade Saga Book 1, Chapter 37: Edge of Death

EBS B1, Chpt 37

With the others gone, the cavern was near silent aside from the pounding above. I stood cradling my bleeding hand against my chest as I enjoyed what little peace I had. One thing I knew for certain, Alec wanted this last piece and he wouldn’t stop until he had it and any consequences were trivial to him. He would eventually find a way in and it didn’t matter how many people he killed along the way. Gods, once he got all the pieces, he’d kill us all anyway and who knows how many after.

Chapter Eight: Theatre of Coils III

ChapterEight3 copy


I was still laughing when Ingesbror attacked.

He wasn’t slow. Large, and hulking, his mass naturally hampered his agility somewhat, but he wasn’t slow. But there was a weight to his speed, the heavy charge of a bull rather than a more lithe creature, and I leaned back to avoid the first swing without difficulty. The return stroke, designed to take my head off, similarly missed. No subtlety – plenty of power, but not an ounce of grace, just as I had expected. I admit I giggled, and was momentarily embarrassed at how childish the noise sounded as I ducked under another series of swipes that left Ingesbror overbalanced. I didn’t take advantage of the opening, however, but kept giggling. Growling in anger, he recovered quickly and came at me with a series of vicious swings. With this many eyes focused on the attack, however, I saw the attacks coming long before they reached me. It was almost pitiably easy to avoid them.

The Truth – Kumara – Chapter 4 Part 8



Both me and the first mate left the captain’s cabin while the others stayed behind. Although the order to apprehend Aqia was given to the first mate, I felt that some extra help would be useful. Once outside he closed the door, crossed his arms and glared darkly at me.

“I don’t need your help, beast.”

Thornfang gave a low growl in response, but I decided to just ignore it.

“Look, how about you stay on the ship, do your duty while keeping an eye out for the deckhand, while I’ll go to shore and hide behind some crates. That way we’ll have her cornered the moment she shows up.”

Anniversary Contest Winners!



Hello Tyrians!

Its been a few weeks since the deadline of our anniversary writing contest. The judges have read every entry and voted several times, but we finally managed to choose a top 3. We’ve had to go through several rounds of voting as we received many great poems, limericks and haikus. Since the voting was so difficult, we decided to award a small in-game prize to every participant that did not make the final top 3. Keep an eye on your inbox as we will need your account name!
Without further ado here are the winners of our contest starting from third place.
