The Blood Within

Current work in progress, The Blood Within follows Raic and Tarsin as they start their journeys to decide the fate of the known world.

Raic Irsen has never seen the world beyond the mountains. Feeling stuck, in the village he knows as home, he dreams of a grand adventure. One night will change his life forever and turn his world upside down. When you cannot even trust yourself, who else is left to turn to?

Tarsin ar’ Saine bears the name of his greatest ancestor but is ever a disappointment to his family. As the second prince of Cyrell, his life has been laid out before him, while all he would like to do is fight in the Royal Guard. Faced with a marriage to further the family, can he find a way to be himself? Or is he doomed to become as cold and cruel as his blood suggests?
