My friend Bradley R. Mitzelfelt has just released the first novel of THE DARK MAGE CHRONICLES, In The Shadow of War. As another emerging writer like myself, I wanted to share this release with everyone.

You’re thinking Why might this book be for me? I shall gladly answer that.

  • It stands on the tradition of Mass Effect. Lead character Dearic Thyne is an Ardour, something of a fantasy equivalent of a Spectre with an extra dash of detective thrown in. While there are bandits, thieves, and orcs running around, there are also the insect-like Nalgvane and a mystery species called the Mists. It’s a wide world where the standard rules don’t have to apply all the time.
  • Dearic is suppose to be a perfect character and fails at it. When I asked Bradley to describe Dearic to me, he said this: “Dearic is the quintessential good guy. He’s chivalrous, likes beautiful women, is highly intelligent, and likes to fight with a rapier.” He makes enemies, he doesn’t know the full capability of his weapons, and, when he has a purpose, he’s utterly single-minded.
  • “Who am I?” Dearic doesn’t know where he comes from, as he’s the King’s adopted son. Despite that major pull on his loyalty, he still has to find out where he came from, then determine how much his nurture or nature will shape his future.

If you’re ready for In The Shadow Of War, it’s ready for you now.
