By: Colin Darney

Aeons ago an ancient war ravaged the land, and no one
The Endless Plains were one site of that ancient battle. Utterly devastated, they have now recovered and are once again at peace. But as the seasons turned and the years passed by, rumors grew. Rumors of the destruction of villages and the slaughtering of innocents. And those rumors are proving true.
Along the banks of the Serensea, Tommy grew into manhood knowing none of this. Living his life fishing the sea with his father, his home was far away from any happenings in the world. But when he is forced to escape the destruction of his village, he finds that not all is as it seems.
And what happens to him and his family will change them all, and reshape the lives of those around them.
“The screams of the villagers and the whistling of the arrows faded away behind them.
I won’t let them down.”

Meet Colin Darney:
Hello! I was born in 1972 and live on the east coast of the United States with my family. My life has been influenced by many things, but most notably by becoming an Eagle Scout, a veteran, and my career in nursing mostly spent in a level one trauma center. I have an eclectic list of hobbies, including camping, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, amateur blacksmithing, horseback riding, skiing, reading, and both tabletop and online gaming. Though I am an avid reader, I never imagined myself actually writing a novel, and I am both stunned and surprised by what I’ve accomplished. Thank you for taking the time to read my work, and I hope you are entertained by the story I’ve written.

The Truth is a weak thing. It has no power. The only power the Truth holds is the power we grant it.
The might of nations rises and falls with the same, inexorable certainty of the oceans. Powers, unseen and unknown, push and pull, with relentless determination. The currents that shape the world are easily ignored until the waters rise, and the people drown.
In the Kingdom of Wahrheit, the tide has turned, and the water is rising.
A new ruler sits upon an ancient throne. Foreign nations, for centuries cowed by the strength of Wahrheit’s dragons and her armies, rise in defiance to throw off the old order. Fae, some thought to be nothing more than myth, stride Wahrheit’s fields and her council chambers. Within the kingdom, there are those who see disruption as a weakness and weakness as an opportunity. There are wrongs to be righted. Blood to be spilled. All in the pursuit of revenge.
There are those who could defy the call and stand against the tide of violence and blood. Six paladins, chosen by Fortune, or so it’s claimed. They are like the moon or the stars—ignorant of the power they exert upon the world. They follow the path chosen for them, and if their passing brings joy or sorrow, they know nothing but their journey.
That is the Truth. Their fate. Unless they can shatter the bindings of ancient law and forge a Truth of their own.
