Shadows of the Northlands
This is the Empire. The greatest nation in the known world.
And it is at war.
When the Crown Prince hears about cities and villages attacked and razed to the ground, the land blackened and left infertile, the already shackled military commands the maverick bounty-hunter Merin and the slick courtier mage Rikkard to find the root of the destruction.
However, as they tackle this mystery, they discover an ancient hatred spanning centuries, with a dark secret linked to Merin and the painful past behind the satirizing cavalier. A swashbuckling tale of suspenseful fantasy and horrifying mystery that is loaded with humor, Shadows of The Northlands will leave you riveted from cover to cover.
Unrestrained Minors is a collection of seven short stories penned by burgeoning young writers ranging from gritty, harsh tragedies to swashbuckling tales of heroism. The culmination of Project Bibliophilia, a workshop and mentorship program by award-winning teen author Vishwesh Desai, Unrestrained Minors explores everything from dark fantasy and mythology to modern realism and action-comedy. Each story tackles a different dichotomy—desire and sacrifice, defiance and submission, resentment and forgiveness—set against a landscape best-suited to explore it. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, and yet others will make you whoop with excitement, but each story written by these Unrestrained Minors will leave you spellbound.
