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 13: Sweet Luck is Live

Ambercaast Chapter 13: Sweet Luck is now Live! Celebration of 1 year of Lapis of Nicodem storytelling!

That’s right, the Lapis of Nicodem serial began Oct. 2, 2020–and oddly, this chapter lined up with the date I chose for Lapis’s birthday. An accident, but Happy Birthday! Thank you to all readers who follow Lapis’s exploits. I deeply appreciate the support, and I will continue to entertain you during the next year 🙂 And thank you to World Anvil, for providing a great place I can run my serial and house its world.

Summary: Faelan asks Lapis to delve into the identity of the chasers Requet is searching for, including one whose patron has staked him for death. Guard Superior Fyor also wants to chat, which, luckily enough, leads Lapis to Danaea’s partner, Thyden–a man no one would guess worked with a dangerous chaser.

Ambercaast Chapter 12: A Night with requet is Live!

Happy Friday! Sit back and read Ambercaast Chapter 12: A Night of Requet.

Rin is upset over Jerin, and Lapis wants to speak with him about it. Unfortunately, following him into the night market proves problematic; she is waylaid by Black Hats in the employ of Leadcommander Requet. He wants to speak with her–NOW. As with everything else, his concerns appear to lead back to a missing Hoyt.

And Lapis of Nicodem turns 1 on October 2! I can’t believe I’ve been releasing a chapter every 2 weeks for a year 🙂 !

Ambercaast Chapter 10: Black Hats with a Dash of Tech is Live

Check out Ambercaast Chapter 10.

What makes for trying times? Black Hats, tech fire fights, and a new street rat who has no idea he’s being hunted by a criminal syndicate. Lapis and Patch must avoid enemies, new and old, to keep him safe from the people who are targeting him for his deceased mother’s underground dealings that, oddly, all relate back to Hoyt.

In Other News: Editing is proceeding slowly on The Glass Volcano: The Wellspring Dragons Book 3. I’m illustrating every other chapter heading, since I’ve decided to break the book into more chapters for ease of reading. I’m still doing eighteen of them, though! We’re hoping for an October release.
