A (free!) short story that ties in with my recent novel Shadowbane: Eye of Justice has now been posted for your reading pleasure:
“Heir of Shadowbane,” a Shadowbane tale
This is a companion story in my tradition of writing companion stories for all my novels, so don’t worry about spoilers. You can read it before, after, or during the novel, and the time you pick will just subtly alter the information you get from it.
Chronologically, it happens between the prologue and the bulk of the novel–7 years after the prologue, 3 years before the novel itself.
My editor hails this story as featuring one of the best fight sequences I’ve ever written.
It introduces a character (Levia Shadewalker) who is also introduced in the prologue of the novel, and mentions several people who show up there as well (particularly the organization of the Eye of Justice).
And it features an appearance by Cellica, Kalen’s adopted sister, who hasn’t been seen since Downshadow!
And it’s completely free. No DDI subscription required!
What are you waiting for? Go read it!
