The ancient city of Bortag, home of the moon-worshipping Astronomers' Guild, is the backdrop for this intriguing journey through Earth's history.
For Jonathan Malone, exiled in Erebus and assigned the task of researching this ancient culture, the secrets of Bortag's Curse may hold more than just the answers he's looking for; solving perhaps an even greater mystery, dating back to the very origins of mankind's evolution, and beyond.
Bortag's Curse takes the legend of Erebus to a whole new level. Written as a companion novel to the series, it can be enjoyed both as a stand-alone adventure, and as a stunning sequel or prequel to the earlier trilogy.
From the subtle irony of Moonshadow and the humour of Tanked, to the romance of Queen of Hearts, or the startling Cabin Fever, each story presents a wonderful spin on its genre. There's even a treat for fans of the author's Erebus series with the story, Sandman, an enchanting tale that can be read as either a prequel, or sequel to the fantasy series.
As a bonus to readers, this new and revised Kindle edition also contains the author's novella, Restless Harts, as well as all of his previously published short works and flash fiction stories, including Weatherwood, Ghost of Elysium and Behind Closed Doors.
This sometimes amusing, yet often thought-provoking compendium of original tales, creates a spellbinding journey filled with twists and turns, and culminates with the tongue-in-cheek audacity of the title story!
"A collection of vivid, inventive stories with more unexpected twists than a left-handed corkscrew!" -Simon Haynes, author of Hal Spacejock
When Supreme Elder Solandra announces to the assembled Council that she personally witnessed the Keeper's demise, revealing that Jonathan Malone was the assailant, Erebus is thrown into chaos, and a subsequent search for Malone's whereabouts proves fruitless.
Having fled Erebus with Kryl of the Helices, a shocked and confused Jonathan is unaware he is being hunted as a fugitive, struggling as he is with the unusual circumstances of his return to Earth, where his consciousness has split across two very different timelines.
When Kryl explains to him what has happened, and it becomes apparent that malevolent forces are at play, Jonathan realises that he must somehow get word back to Erebus to warn the Council of Elders.
Trapped across two realities, wanted for murder, and with the Equilibrium under threat from a dark and powerful enemy, Jonathan must also face a devastating personal sacrifice to prevent the deaths of his infant nephews, his sister Sarah's beloved sons.
Beloved Sons concludes the Erebus series and continues events from the conclusion of Wraith Tide, and the trilogy companion novel, Bortag's Curse.
