For those who have not read “In the Shadow of the Dragon’s Spine.” Wedi is one of the Pryis infected by the dagger Fyorendir. (Fyorendir means the life ender) Our heroes met him and his companions traveling down the mountain. His contact with the life ender crippled his lorki, and he no longer has the innate healing that seems built into those who dwell in the Dragon’s Spine’s shadow. The residents of Midgard. The King’s Scouts had brought him to Arnarhvall. The Pyris magistrate in Ritsker deemed him not a threat and released him to make his way in the world.
Stories have been a part of my life forever. I have heard them, read them, and told them as long as I can remember. I’ve written hundreds of stories. Bits and pieces of stories. This is my first novel. It is the result of a story that refused to die. It kept unreeling in my mind. After a year of this haunting, I had no choice but to write it. What started as a simple damsel in distress story changed once I met the damsel. As I wrote this set of stories the world I imagined grew. After rewrites, revisions, and letting it bake. I’ve discovered more. More of the politics of the region. More relationships between people. Now as I begin a sequel to this first book, I’m finding more complexity than I ever imagined and more loose strings that need to be explored. View all posts by Dale
