A sword that can cut through anything. A boy destined from birth to wield it.
Even when they were children, Loic knew that Erwan was destined to save the world. Someday, he would claim his birthright: the legendary blade known as the Godsfang, the only weapon that can slay the Fell God. Born of the bloodlines of both the Fell God and the Great Divine, Erwan must be the one to do so.
When the time comes for Erwan to face his destiny, Loic follows, unwilling to abandon the friend he has known since childhood. But the threads of fate come in twists and tangles, and what lies amidst the knots may be too terrible for either to bear.
All magic comes from the Citadel.
As a child, Adela dreamed of going to the Citadel and becoming a mage, though the reality of her parents' deaths made that dream a farfetched fantasy. When the caretakers at the orphanage discover her latent magical talent, she is given the opportunity to join the Citadel. Adela leaps at the chance. Power, wealth, prestige — she would have it all.
There is no fire without fuel, however, and magic is not without its price. The Citadel keeps many secrets within its ancient halls, many things it is willing to do in the name of the greater good. As Adela grows from pupil to mage, she will soon discover that there are costs she is unwilling to pay.
But the choice may no longer be hers.
Y. R. Liu spent much of her childhood following her academic parents from city to city, growing up in various university libraries and computer labs. Throughout that time, the chief constants in her life were an overabundance of books, imagination, and unsupervised access to a word processor. As she grew, a love of stories and writing continued to be a constant source of comfort and joy, seeing her through a B.A.&Sc. in Cogntive Science and a M.CS. in Human Computer Interaction. While she enjoys a good story of any genre, her especial favorite has always been fantasy, particularly the dark and emotionally evocative.
She enjoys decaf milk teas, singing to herself, and spending too much time in Skyrim. Currently, she resides in Montreal with her partner of over a decade.
