Outside the Ring of Fire

The quest for The Sword of Fire. It began with a prophecy-

In fire’s ring, where angels sing,

In holies’ home, sheathed in stone,

Where blood was spilt, one for all,

To make amends for the Fall.  

The first of swords awaits the finding,

Of one whose oath, blood is binding,

Wisdom, strength, honor finding,

To whose arm the sword is binding.

Before the quest is over, kings shall fall, empires shall rise and one

young man shall truly understand what it means to be a warrior.

We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming a “sub-creator” and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbor, while materialistic “progress” leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil. 

– J.R.R. Tolkien

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.

    Love your books. When will Apocolypse Part 2 be coming out?

  6. I’ve decided to go back to writing the whole book out before publishing, instead of putting it out in installments. That fits my writing style better, but the downside is it will take longer to get the book out. I’m working on it now, but with the complexity of the story, I’m not ready to give an estimated publishing date just yet.
