This is the first novel I have ever written, and is but the first of four novels I have in the making - each chronicling a different period in my world's history. The first is the Old Age, when a great empire ruled the earth. To those assuming the Empire is malicious, you are only half correct. The true evil-doers are a cabal of demons called the Northern Masters. The Masters work their evil devices, creating subterfuge and fracturing the society of the world of Valhalla. The higher echelons of the Empire istelf have become tainted by their malice. All of this sounds cliche, I know. The races are also incredibly overused - humans, Dwarfs, Orcs, demons, etc. However, in the later chapters of my tome, I have included several races which are unique.

The inspiration for writing my epic came from a desire to see more variety in the overall theme of the fantasy genre. What I mean by that is have you ever noticed how many fantasy novels revolve around a central character embarking on some great journey in the hopes of destroying evil. The inner journey, some call it. I have done away with that. There are many characters in my book and no overall quest that must be fulfilled lest the world be brought to ruin. Instead, I have thrown the characters into situations in which they must rely on their wits to overcome. The Old Age cover a twenty-or-so year period. Don't worry - the style I've employed does not chronicle every single day. My first positing is the prologue of my 257,000 thousand word novel. I hope you enjoy it and I appreciate the time you are taking to read it. Enjoy.
