Seven Towers

Seven cities of might
Seven towers of light
In the land of was
And will be
Lachlaniel’s world is a world of complete darkness, but across the Godwin River there are stones of light. When he sees the light for the first time and beholds the wonder of the stones, Lachlaniel sets out for the Godwin accompanied by Ewald, the woodsman. But creatures of darkness, who hate the light and the stones, pursue them. Guided by Kesniel and protected by Velius they reach the Great City Agapay and the Bridge. The stones lie just beyond, but the quest has aroused The Great Evil. Nameless and powerful he bends his might to crush the city and put an end to the light in his dominion. The city is now in peril.
Remember your city. Remember those you love. Remember your families. Remember your King, and fight with might and main this day. Remember also ‘the horse is prepared for battle, but the victory is the King’s’.” He stepped down and moved towards the massive doors. “Arm yourselves!” The doors swung open at his touch. “For King and country!!” he shouted and moved through the doors.

The Darkened Land is epic fantasy at its very best...

“The battle begins,” Velius declared.

“It begins,” Diaphanous echoed. “May the King protect you and your men.”

“You know they will come for the Stone.”


“You’ll be alone.”

“Alone, and yet not alone. I’m never truly alone just as you and Max and all servants of the King are never truly alone.”

“There will be many.

“There will be many,” Diaphanous echoed again.

“I hope that today will not be the day you return to that paradise for which we all long.”

“If today is the day, if this is my last battle, then I shall be at rest at last and joyful to be in my King’s presence more fully than I have ever been. But,” he said as the old warrior stirred within, “whether I live or die may the King be glorified. Do not worry my friend. I’ve been in the King’s service for many years and have been in many battles at overwhelming odds.”

“Long life.” Velius said as Max walked out the door.

Then he turned and walked out closing and locking the door behind him.

“I’ve had one,” Diaphanous’ soft response whispered through the crack as the door closed.


“That is a man I would never want to meet in battle,” Max said almost to himself.

“Nor I,” Velius agreed.
