Far away, in the streets of Imperial City, with the skies full of portent, word spreads that the emperor’s daughter has been kidnapped, and rumors circulate of something else, a new era, a new world, a new “Red Dawn.”
Cursed at birth with a wild imagination, Andrew Cooper spent his youth dreaming of worlds more exciting than Earth.
He is a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop. His stories have appeared in Morpheus Tales, Fear and Trembling, Residential Aliens and Mindflights, among others.
Creatures of shadow are crawling through the land of Eloesus... they seek one man above all else: Theron, upstanding citizen, master swordsman, and veteran of many wars. As he flees, doom is falling over the land: clouds of fire hover over the ancient city of Thenai and infernal names not spoken in thousands of years thunder from the mountaintops.
A hero is needed. A wind of destiny is blowing, yet Theron is one false step from death.
