Behind the disguise of a murderer seeking redemption, Valence fears his future. He is a pawn in a game bringing forward the return of the Darkness, an ancient infection of destructive intent.

When he crosses blades with an assassin proclaiming the Darkness's return, Valence's destiny is revealed. On the day he murdered a friend, he bore a legacy not meant for him -- a legacy connected to an evil and magic far before his time.

But one choice can change you, and for Valence, it means discovering how to suppress the infection and cure his own guilt.

BOND OF DARKNESS is an epic fantasy, complete at 100,000 words. Thank you for your consideration.
