Exile

by Tom Stacey

On the fringes of the Verian Empire, two small boys stumble upon a strange altar, buried in the heart of a mountain. There they awaken a horror unseen for generations, that will descend upon the realm of men while it is at its weakest. For Veria is a nation at war with itself, only recently recovered from a bloody rebellion, and the time of heroes has passed. The empire is in a state of chaos, and while its ruler, the Empron Illis, rids the land of his remaining enemies, unseen forces are gathering at the borders. Yet all eyes are turned inwards. The Empron is not a well man, and there are whispers among the common folk that his advisors are spies; demons that only wear the flesh of men.

Elsewhere, a young man, scarred by what he saw in the mountain, leaves the watchful gaze of his father, setting out to find his place in the world.

On the field where the rebellion died, a soldier awakes with no memory of himself. He will find that his life has been stolen from him, and that he is an enemy of his own people, scorned and hunted.

In the distant mountains, a forester who has buried his past learns that he has not been forgotten, and that his crimes have sought him out at last. But he is no simple woodsman. He is Beccorban the Helhammer, Scourge, Burner and the Death of Nations, and his fury is a terrible thing.

For when all the heroes are gone, Veria will turn to those it has forgotten, before all is lost.

The Other Of One: Book One

by Brian G. Burke

It is the turn of the 20th century, Ireland, when a young boy – William Muldoon – happens upon a friendly Grogoch who shows him to his mythical home underground. There he meets the Dwelvin-Mites; a community of Imps whom he’d always been fascinated by through story.

His fascination soon wanes when their beautiful guide, Anun the Creator, explains to him how they are in hiding from an evil tyrant – a Wrythunn warrior and Pooka named Drevol Briggun – who has seized their subterranean home of Lythiann and how it is up to William to assassinate him, being the reincarnation of the only other Wrythunn in existence who has the potential to confront Briggun’s power. What’s more, a curse has been placed on William’s home, and the only way for it to be reversed is upon Briggun’s death.

With little choice in the matter, William takes to the seemingly empty world of Lythiann to carry out this frightening task, only to discover that it’s not as uninhabited as he first believed.

Singly joined by a friendly rabble, he learns more about himself, his past, his future, and how his transformation into the great Wrythunn warrior, Mysun Margyle, will not hold true without the Symphogram; a gramophone-like device which performs Mysun’s mighty theme. A composition known as the Banádh.

For this to happen, he needs to truly understand his cause, which isn’t as easy as he once thought.
