My Earthdawn novel Anarya’s Secret was published one year ago today.
It’s a fantasy novel, set in the universe of the Earthdawn roleplaying game – a game developed by FASA, and continued and expanded by New Zealand games publisher RedBrick.
Here’s the publisher’s blurb:
Kendik Dezelek is a young Swordmaster. He’s tall, strong, and well-trained. But when he leaves his home village on the road to adventure, he soon finds that those things will only get you so far. In the land between the Tylon Mountains and the Serpent River, friend and foe are not always as they appear.
In a world still recovering from the Scourge, when Horrors ravaged the land of Barsaive, Kendik is soon forced to choose between a range of evils. He travels with the surly and disreputable Turgut brothers. He encounters the bloated tyrant Lord Tesek, ruler of the growing city of Borzim. And he is ensnared in the plots of the feared and mysterious House of the Wheel.
Most of all, he meets Anarya Chezarin, who enters his life from the depths of an ancient stronghold. Who is she, and what is her secret? It may cost Kendik and Anarya more than their lives to find out.
I had a great time writing Anarya’s Secret! It’s stuffed to the gills with plot, incidents, happenings, mysterious humans and even more mysterious non-humans. It’s got adventure, romance and tentacles. If you’re a gamer yourself, or there’s a gamer in your family, I think there’s plenty in Anarya’s Secret to keep them entertained.
