Summary

A prequel novella in the Indigo Skies World... 
--- 
One arm caught around her middle and flung her back to the wall. Her eyes found mine mere seconds before I ground my hungry, angry lips against hers, more beast than being. She squeaked and wriggled, but the softness of her body slowed my heated plunder to something subtler.  
My hand curled around into her hair, tipping her head back ever so slightly so my fierce kiss could better explore the sweet bow of her lips. I pressed into her, hard heat and need seeking solace in her form. 
Her body began to subtly arch back, cursing my mind to blank thought with her gradual reciprocation. Like the sweetest of flowers, her lips bloomed, parting to my desperate taste. 
--- 
His thousand year old heart craves her, but is she the woman, yet, that she is set to become…? 
A prequel set in the Indigo Skies universe, Ruari is a vampire awaiting his fate when the key to his future and the curse of his past, Violet, crosses his path once more. Mortally linked to his sire, Ruari hasn't seen Violet for a thousand years and she has no knowledge of him or the knot in their destinies. 
Fuelled by desire, can he halt her self-destructive ways or will he give in to feelings he's harboured for a cruel and slow millennia?

    "We should expect this young woman to be more powerful than our average novice, possibly even more powerful than the average magician." 
    This year, like every other, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city of undesirables. Cloaked in the protection of their sorcery, they move with no fear of the vagrants and miscreants who despise them and their work—until one enraged girl, barely more than a child, hurls a stone at the hated invaders . . . and effortlessly penetrates their magical shield. 
    What the Magicians' Guild has long dreaded has finally come to pass. There is someone outside their ranks who possesses a raw power beyond imagining, an untrained mage who must be found and schooled before she destroys herself and her city with a force she cannot yet control.

    Straddling three wildly different and distant places and eras with its legs wide open, There Came a Darkening from the West is a saga of epic proportions. Laden with dark, foreboding imagery and interwoven with hilarious strands of even darker humour, it’s about gods, power and sex – and the consequences of love, betrayal and greed in the fictional Citadel of Sputen Duyvil. 
    
    Charting the birth and eventual destruction of the Citadel through the eyes of the central characters, the tale takes us on a rollercoaster ride from a modern-day world on the brink of anarchy, where petrol’s a luxury only affordable for the super-rich; a place populated by con-artists and asset-strippers, money-men and robots, to mediaeval times teeming with serfs and lords, seamen and whores. It’s like a black-magic mix of Game of Thrones with Dungeons and Dragons with all the gore and glory of primitive tribal warfare as well as the more subtle but equally sickening consequences of its modern-day counterpart.
    
    By turns other-worldly and in-your-face brash, with earthy language to match, There Came A Darkening from the West is a rare feat in that it’s apocalyptic, yet knows when to keep its tongue in its cheek.
    
    Born in 1953 Nigel was part of the baby boomer years, growing up in the exciting times of the Sixties and Seventies when life seemed to hold so much promise. Educated at Framlingham College and Broxbourne Grammar School, Nigel went on to a career in the Display and Exhibition Sector working in both the retail and manufacturing sides of the business. Hobbies include the love of a good book, writing, photography and an insatiable appetite for good music. He is often to be found at London’s small but select venues appreciating the fine musicianship of the bands performing.

    The Conclave of Shadows has smashed the Nighthawks' dread plot to destroy the Empire of Great Kesh through civil war, putting an end to the murderous brotherhood's reign of terror. But there is no time for the victors to celebrate, for the mad sorcerer, Leso Varen, has taken refuge with the Magicians of the Assembly on the world of Kelewan, and is lost among the most powerful men and women of that empire. And a devastating new threat looms on the horizon: hordes of the Dasati—the most vicious warriors in the known universe—are massing to overrun both Kelewan and Midkemia. 
    The great sorcerer Pug knows of no power that will vanquish the invaders. And he realizes he must now enter another realm of reality if his world is to survive—and make his way to the poisonous heart of the Dasati Empire to find the answers he needs to defeat the fearsome enemy. Joining him on his quest into the dark unknown will be the brave Magnus and Nakor . . . and a disturbing young stranger named Bek, whose terrifying bloodlust and uncanny strength attest to a host of sinister secrets waiting to be revealed. But the champions of Midkemia will need every ally they can muster if their mission is to succeed in the most terrible place they have ever ventured—as they and all Midkemians prepare for battle against the encroaching doom that would swallow their world.

    It is 1875, and Count Dracula is President of the United States of America. 
     
    In the wake of the Civil War, with the country struggling to regain its balance, Dracula seized power. The Count's thralls assassinated President Lincoln and his entire administration in a single night and, in the ensuing chaos, their master made his move. Dominating the Senate, he declared himself President-for-Life, and now rules the Union with fear and an iron fist. His vampiric progeny, the Coven of the Red Hand, infest every strata of society, and enforce Dracula's will with ruthless efficiency. 
     
    Drawn by the shadows gathering across the nation, secretive cults and evil creatures emerge from their lairs to thrive in the darkness of the new regime. Fleeing from the oppression and menace of the East, hordes of pioneers head to the West, hoping for a new life. 
     
    Dracula's greed, however, knows no bounds, and his reach is long… 
     
    Dracula's America: Shadows of the West is a skirmish game of gothic horror set in an alternate Old West. Secret wars rage across the country – from bustling boom-towns to the most remote wilderness – as cults and secret societies fight for power and survival. Players will throw their support behind one of these factions, and will lead a Posse in fast-paced, cinematic battles for dominance and survival.
