Task has seen more than enough of war in his four hundred odd years. But it is what he was made for. He is bought and sold as a weapon and he has to obey his master. But this latest war and the friendship of a young girl are making him question things. Can a stone golem really change?
The day the lands of the Rhen feared has come. The people of the Darklands are massing on their borders, ready to invade. And this time, leading them is Darien Lauchlin, the man responsible for stopping the last attempted invasion.
For March, my main focus is going to be on getting some writing done. For 2018 so far, it’s felt a lot like I’ve spent more time working on related things like this blog, book reviews, etc than I have doing actual writing.
