Author: Brett Armstrong

Release Date: September 2021
Genre: Christian Epic Fantasy

The shadows of Jason’s past have caught him. Having stepped into the Quest of Fire, Jason is pursued by a league of assassins formed of pure darkness. To his horror he discovers these creatures also were contracted to eliminate Anargen and his friends as they sought to understand the Tower of Light’s oracle. To unravel the mystery of who wants him dead and how he fits into the ages old quest, Jason must travel the lengths of the Lowlands. In the Ziljafu deserts a secret awaits him that will shake him to his core. He’ll have to move fast and cling fiercely to hope, as Anargen’s story twists down a bleak path to almost certain failure.

The creatures of darkness in the Lowlands have long waited for men to spurn the High King’s laws. With few concerned for the light and everything falling apart around them, Jason and Anargen will face the shadows of night’s falling as their world hangs in the balance.

EXCERPT

There was a faint crunching sound from the corridor at Jason’s back.

It could just be bits of rubble continuing to collapse. Try as he might, he couldn’t accept that explanation and dashed over to the darkest corner of the room. There he collapsed beside the feet of the statue. He needed to catch his breath and think and, most of all, stay out of sight.

The crunching sound grew louder and was accompanied by the ring of boots against the stone floor. A moment later, a figure entered the room.

A man of average height and build was about all Jason could make out from his position. He watched, holding his breath as the man stalked over to the back of the chamber and looked around.

In a voice thickly laced with the Zilnian accent, he called out, “I know you are here, Landsby. You may not realize it, but this is the throne room of Tislatna’s final Primus, Zilos.”

His chuckle was quiet but sinister. “Many find themselves drawn to this audience chamber. His mummified remains exude a potent aura. A dark one. Primus Zilos was the first to discover the power of shadows and found the Sombra.”

The man drifted back into an area almost too dark for Jason to see. He flipped up a hood and ceased to be altogether. His voice, now incorporeal but all the more menacing, echoed in the chamber. “You are foolish to believe the dark will conceal you.”

Jason’s heart hammered in his chest. It was the only sound he could hear. He balled up as tight as he could as he perceived the room growing progressively colder.

Think, Jason, think. You’ve got to hold it together and find a way out.

There was a sudden swirl like mist or sand in front of Jason. A hand materialized and jerked him upwards to stare into the Sombra’s grey face with its milky eyes. 

“We are the dark.”
