I’m doing this book for national novel writing month!
Basil, a healer from the mad Southern nation of Saria, gathers a group of friends together to hear the dying bequests of great educator, philanthropist and rich wizard, Imber of Vaern.
When a dark presence begins to stalk them in the town of Harring on the way to the meeting, Basil and Meta begin to suspect that the “Difficulties” of the Western Kingdoms’ civil war are reaching across the years to bite them in the ass.
Arriving at Imber’s manor, called Brighthaven, furthers their unease, as they find the grounds untended and a foreboding weighing on all their hearts.
Once they are at dinner, and they discover one of the other guests have been murdered, things really begin to go downhill.
See the First pass at the introduction.
