Beruthiel's Ten: The

Feline Demolition







Dragondust (WIP)

In a world where magic fades, Adrian Blacklight, the kingdom's Lord Chancellor, is caught in a struggle between warring factions to possess a legendary object: the Sicle of Lathan. If the enmities weren't bad enough for the state, the fact that no one actually knows what the Sickle does, adds more to Adrian's troubles. And what part does his servant, Momka, play in the greater scheme of things?

Status: Almost finished
