Ravenscar: By Blood We Unite

To outsmart a wizard’s dark magick, Darrick Ravenscar places his faith in an Antillean warlock and witch to reclaim his reign.

Antilles is home to the Antillean, Elven, Torweld, and Ursidax tribes. Legend foretells a chosen ruler will unite the clans once again should he or she wear the lost crown. The elder clan lord of Ursidax met with a tragic end in search of the mystical headpiece, leaving behind the Ravenscar legacy to his son, Darrick. The Elven queen deems the young lord a worthy candidate to unite the isle and sends her son to safeguard him. Despite Prince Fierctar’s efforts, the wizard Dragorn rewrites legend by controlling another/Gunzer Ravenscar with magick to do his bidding—kill Darrick.

Mortally wounded, Darrick wakes inside a humble abode where Althea and Auray Woodsman miraculously nurse him back to health. While he recovers, Darrick befriends the Antillean siblings and learns about the Ways from Althea. She practices the magick while Auray refuses to acknowledge the gifts of his birthright. Darrick falls in love with Althea; however, in time, he must return to his Ursidax family and resume his duty as clan lord.

Unexpected twists, lies, and accusations bring the Woodsman siblings to Ursidax. Trouble begins when Darrick sends Auray to apprentice under Dragorn. When Althea discovers how the wizard manipulated Gunzer, the Ravenscar brothers set off to rescue Auray. Will they be too late?

Mayan Resurrection

While researching the cosmos, a graduate student observes a beam originating from a black hole in the Milky Way. Galen Stewart is the only one who can see the beam and calculates its trajectory to Recluse, Montana. His professor discovers lightning recently unearthed a Mayan obelisk near Recluse and asks Galen to join his team, realizing he is the key to the mysterious beam.

Destiny brings Lucia Torrez, a gifted archaeological student, to Recluse. She joins the team when the embankment around the obelisk erodes to reveal the same pyramid in her nightmares. Lucia befriends Galen, who confides that an apparition has haunted him since the age of thirteen. Together, the two determine that the sun's path will intercept the beam during a solar eclipse. This discovery guarantees the project’s failure at capturing the beam’s energy.

As the eclipse nears, odd behaviors, weather anomalies, and natural disasters affect Recluse. Galen’s apparition possesses his soul. Lucia's translations of the hieroglyphs warn of impending doom. The Maya built the pyramid 5,000 years ago as a keep to imprison a legendary monster. If set free, its wrath promises an apocalyptic end.

Instead of capturing the beam, the team inadvertently releases Ek'-Way. Its hunger for souls drives the hulking monster to devour Earth’s population in search of the one soul meant to unite with it. Lucia believes a human sacrifice will stop the killing spree. Will the rest of the team agree?
