Works in Progress
Everything I'm working on, from concept to finish.
It should have been a simple task. Take charge of the half-elf, get her somewhere safe, wait until he could come back for her. So how did it all go wrong?
Olyvia started out with a simple mission; track down someone named Darius and hand him over to the human-magic lawmen known as 'Keepers', and they'd let her go free. But things changed when Darius makes a deal of her own, one that is more appealing to her, and in exchange for a simple escort task: Keep Layla the half-elf safe until he can return for her.
But things are never a simple as they sound. As soon as Olyvia takes charge of her, the pair are immediately hunted by the Keepers and attacked by a clan of shape-shifters, both wanting the girl and both willing to kill to get her. Olyvia is driven to contact an old 'friend', one who can get them to safety faster, one who has access to information, one who can give her a better picture of what's actually going on.
And once they finally uncover the truth, the trio realize this hole goes much deeper than they realized. So deep, in fact, that they may not get out alive.
Branded is a current project, a sort of refurbishing of an older project. It'll be formatted as a book/ebook, and is linked but not specifically related to 'Abracadabra'.
Rod is whatever he needs to be at any given time; while his single trick is simple (ability to enhance the natural properties of any given object), it has varied applications and gives him multiple opportunities to fight, defend, or escape. He's lived long enough to know that life is fleeting, and those fleeting moments are full of everything from elation to dark despair, and has taken measures to defend himself from the mental and emotional toll life takes. This comes out in sarcasm, dismissal, and flat-out disinterest. But it doesn't hamper his ability to help, or his ability to know any given puzzle at any given time, and where each piece needs to go in order to reach said puzzle. How much he shares with who depends on his mood and how nicely they ask.
