The Ever Fiend
by Randy Ellefson

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

Only a fool steals from a wizard.

Talon Stormbringer thought he knew the risk of stealing from Viland Shadowbreaker - until he got caught. The wizard will spare him if Talon performs a service - fetch the deadly silver elixir from the Everway, a supernatural land that Talon assumed wasn’t real. Only children believe the stories about what lies within - lost souls, corrupted magic items, and mysterious destinations that most people never escape. Ruling over it all is the Ever Fiend, a bogeyman that people use to scare unruly youngsters into behaving.

Talon agrees to go, if only to stop Viland from doing something unholy with the potent elixir once retrieved. Joining him are a band of people he can’t trust. Their leader, a sorelia with nefarious plans of his own. The sorelia’s battle-trained mynx, a large cat who obeys only its master. An alluring swordswoman who wants to enchant her blades with the elixir. A cocky guard whose bravado might prove more liability than asset. A warrior kryll whose curiosity about the elixir might cost him more than his life. And a tortured Knight of Coiryn who seeks redemption in a place where most are damned. Of all the things they might discover on their journey, one is the most obvious and yet the hardest to learn...

EXCERPT:

Suddenly freed, Talon squeezed his sword, flexed his limbs, and weighed some options. Quick as he was, no sword could fly faster than words. And while the taller shadow was likely the wizard, he had no idea to whom or what the other shadow belonged, and had to know before launching an attack. Besides, he could hardly assess his foes with his back to them. He slowly turned around, a scowl on his face.

A black-robed, balding man stood beside the empty pedestal, a reassuring smile on his swarthy face. Perhaps he was a Marulan from across the Antaran Sea. But Marulans were thought to be mostly savages, their skins as black as their deeds, and not wizards with an air of sophistication and opulence. The man did not have an accent that Talon could hear. The long face, nose, and limbs matched what Talon had heard from stories. The dark eyes of Viland Shadowbreaker observed him coolly.

  1. I love the cover! Who's the designer?

    What sparked the idea for this book?

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Brooke! I actually did the cover myself. The idea came from my fantasy setting, which I've been building for almost 30 years. There's a supernatural land ruled by the Ever Fiend, where all sorts of weird things happen or exist, including the Poison Pond and silver elixir. Once I thought of my action hero, Talon Stormbringer, I thought he'd be the perfect guy to go in there to get it, but he'd never want the elixir for himself.

  3. Thank you for posting about my book today! I'll try to answer any questions your readers have. I have one for them - Do you like a fantasy world with all new races or is that a turn off? THE EVER FIEND has a bunch of new ones. Randy Ellefson
