Book 1 : The Dim Realm, Volume I



Strangers have come to town; strangers the likes of which Kara and Corin have never seen – dwarves, orcs and more. A small group of townsfolk and these outsiders must come together to combat the darkness plaguing Arrow’s Flight, but the danger is more horrible than they first realized, and bears directly upon mysteries centuries old. As Kara sets out on a quest to quell this ancient evil, she must rely on Corin and a particularly gifted stranger named Tal Stormgren to help her follow the maze of clues that she hopes will lead to an escape – before it is too late.

Book One is a moody, slow burn that builds the story from the ground up, mixing dark fantasy and horror as the layers are peeled away. The small town of Arrow’s Flight is rotting from the inside, where a cult known as the Harbingers seek to return their dark god and his minions to a broken world, and as heroes and simple folk alike are drawn together, they find that they are caught in a web of mystery and prophecy. They cannot leave the town, and a predator begins to hunt them down. Can they escape before it finds them?
