Ambercaast Chapter 15: Cooperation? is Live!

Ambercaast Chapter 15: Cooperation? is Live!.

Patch decides the Black Hats can get them to Ambercaast faster than traditional research methods. Lapis is pissed, but has no choice but to go along. Their detention is short-lived; her estranged uncle confronts the mercenaries, and with an offer of cooperation. Lapis joins the preparations for an infiltration of Ambercaast–but not everything is as it seems.

Also check out The Glass Volcano: The Wellspring Dragons Book 3. It’s live on Kindle on October 30th.

The Glass Volcano. The Black-shine Mountain. Jo khade maja. Vedellesse Sava. All refer to the lair of Kykini Cede, Flame Dragon of Kassak. Shiobe and Sikode have arrived at the mythic Seari monument, their goal to find a way inside, defeat dragon-created trials, and reach the Flame Stone, the artifact of the legendary beast. Sikode has dedicated his life to defeating the magickal challenge held within the object and becoming a dragonmaster, the first in a thousand years. Shiobe, with her historical knowledge of the volcano, vows to help him succeed. 

Luckily, a local climber, Ceten, knows about a secret entrance and will lead them inside the mountain. Unluckily, complications arise to make traversing the already dangerous lair more difficult. Kitta and Rien, Shiobe’s ex-friends from the Soline royal court, vie for the stone. They believe it is an ancient, abandoned dragonpriest artifact that will help them protect their country from a potential Illenan invasion. Following in their wake are bloodmages who want to capture Shiobe. She still possesses the sylf-blessed river rock she stole from them, and they want it back, at any cost. 

Shiobe realizes the bloodmages will hound her until they attain their prize and return it to its purpose of magickally imprisoning the butterfly sylfaone she stumbled upon in the twilight mists. Their success seems guaranteed because of the personal involvement of their deity. She and Sikode believe a dragon fighting with them will overcome the bloodsylf’s touch and help them eradicate the bloodmage threat. They just have to reach the Flame Stone first.

You can check out Blood’s Stone at World Anvil for a bit of background for The Glass Volcano. It’s also a good Halloween read!

And the newest addition to the Lapis of Nicodem world, Fools and Ghouls Day.

Yeah, I’ve had a busy October. And on to November, when I’ll be setting up my audio studio!

Ambercaast: Chapter 1 is Live

Ambercaast Chapter 1: A Shocking Stake is live at World Anvil. Ambercaast continues the Lapis of Nicodem fantasy serial.

For eight years, Lapis had sought vengeance against the rebel traitor who helped Jilvayna’s palace guard invade Nicodem and slaughter her family. Perben is now exposed, but ranking rebels who see their own fates twisted into his try to downplay and ignore his vicious betrayal, and view discrediting and harming her as the solution to their problems. Disgusted, her brother Faelan, Leader of the Rebels, and Midir, the true heir to the Jilvaynian throne, contemplate drastic measures against internal threats.


Lapis wants nothing more to do with the rebellion, but those she cares for are entwined with it. She becomes a reluctant go-between for Faelan and Midir, while attempting to keep her career as a chaser viable and the street rats who visit her reading circle safe. On top of it all, the brewing underwar between opposing criminal enterprises has brought added danger to the streets of Jiy, in the form of syndicate battles and the Dentherion soldiers King Gall enlisted to quell them.


The attempted crackdown on syndicate movement by empire troops endangers the street rats, the rebellion, and the delicate agreement between Faelan and his potential Dentherion ally. Lapis’s partner, Patch, believes the solution lies in Ambercaast, a Taangis Empire ruin where Hoyt, the guttershank who instigated the underwar, fled. Hoyt is staked by the rebellion as well as several criminal syndicates, becoming a tantalizing target for any competent chaser. Patch sees a quick in, a quick out, and a huge payout.


 Lapis hopes their stake is as simple as it sounds.


 Ambercaast is part of the Lapis of Nicodem serialized fantasy series.
