Stormtalons: Grayshade

Novel or Novella

For ten years the assassin Grayshade has eliminated threats to the Order of Argoth, the Just God. The Acolytes of Argoth are silent and lethal enforcers of the Order’s will within the sprawling city of Cohrelle, whose own officials must quietly bow to the Order’s authority while publicly distancing themselves from its actions.

Grayshade is the supreme executor of the Order’s edicts, its best trained and most highly respected agent. But when a mission doesn’t go as planned, Grayshade starts to question the authority and motives of his superiors; and as he investigates, he soon finds himself the target of the very Order he once served without question. Now it will take all of Grayshade’s skill, intuition, and cunning to find the answers he seeks…if he can stay alive.

Welcome to Stormtalons, the rich-tapestry epic fantasy setting created by the Archmage that gave us The Forgotten Realms®, Ed Greenwood. The world of Asmer, where the Heirophar, ruler of Skalaunt, seeks to gain control of all magic and the deeply religious country of Rheligor opposes him no matter the cost. Where the dwarves of Khaormont vie with Nornar Mining, A Stormtalons Company for the vast resources of the Wyrmspire Mountains. Where ancient Dragons sleep deep beneath the earth with only legends and myth telling of them. Where elves live far, stranded or hidden, to escape those grasping for magic, power, or both. Where the lawless city-port of Tanthalas and the Firefall only have a single rule; you only get to have it if you can keep it. Where the reptilian uolori live in the hot jungles of the Yacathan, and brute dragons soar the skies over Alarstarn. Discover the Stormtalons, walk the grounds of Asmer, and lose yourself in the mists!
