From The Dark is the first in a multi-part saga of a world fighting on the brink of despair, and a pair of twins caught in the middle of it.

Tentative book cover? No idea. I had fun making it though.

In a world where Magicka has been re-discovered, widely adopted by Magicians, and abused for centuries, calamity has struck once more.

Horrors, twisted demonic humanoids thought to have been eradicated in the past, emerged from the remote regions of the world, beginning their assault a decade ago. After claiming millions of lives, humanity has been pushed to the brink of despair.

As the world is being quickly overrun, Remi Naslund is out of time in more ways than one. Joining the Wayfarer’s Union, he seeks the assistance of past friends and enemies to gather clues for a solution to fix the broken world. All signs point him toward the Direlands, and he soon finds himself deep within the vast forest hoping for answers.

The forests of the Direlands are thick, unruly, where very little light penetrated the canopy of leaves.
