A hired carriage waited nearby, out of sight. Inside it, his younger sister was safe, hidden from her husband’s brutalising hands.

Patiently, Lead Auren waited. His body coiled to strike when he laid eyes on his squinty-eyed, scrawny, Daven brother-in-law. Even if he were the last of his race, Auren would kill him for his nature.

A single candle flickered in the large room stacked with dirty dishes, discarded food, and empty kegs. The floor nearly crawled with buzzing insects. Their bodies scurried and their limbs scratched underneath the ankle-deep garbage.

The Daven entered, immediately noting the burning candle and the wide-open bedchamber door. “I don’t know how you escaped–”

Lead Auren straightened but hid his solid muscular stature and confidence by dropping his shoulders and relaxing his frame. “I let her out.”

His sister’s husband, towering over him by a foot, strode forward. “You’ve no right to interfere in matters of my home and wife.”

Lead Auren calmly smiled, his tone conversational and weak. “I’ve every right. I’m Lead Auren of Maidstone.”

“Her big brother returns from his pampering at the castle?” Amused, he laughed. “As head of your family, let me welcome you back into the fold and remind you, by law, she’s my property.” He shoved Auren, and he allowed it, stumbling backwards a few paces.

Lead Auren had promised his frightened sister he would not start a fight. However, he would enjoy provoking him, then ending it. He rubbed his hand over his week’s worth of stubble on his head. “Azalea is no one’s property.”

“It’s a brave man who arrives with magic to steal from a noughty.”

“I need no magic.” His brown eyes remained fixated on the man as he lifted the bow and quiver from his back and tossed them aside. “A noughty is born without magic. You? You were too stupid to learn.”

As Auren hoped, the man’s anger ignited, and he attacked. The Lead widened his stance, squared his shoulders, and hardened his frame. This time, when shoved his body did not give.



The Blackened Tablet Series is an epic fantasy quest story with corrupt politics, wondrous magic, and illicit encounters in a supernatural world where no one is safe.

Three hundred years ago, the sacred tablet granted by their god, Jezabet, turned black, and eight kingdoms broke free, plummeting into the bottomless sea. There was no warning, and no one knows why.

Now, a strange illness plagues Aldersward. Crowned Prince Aedyn’s sisters, Achelle and Annora, his father, and countrymen are desperate and grief-stricken. All hope is lost…

Until someone dreams, and Aedyn leaves behind his mistress and his betrothed to cure their nation. He enlists his friends; a brazen playboy, a gentle strongman, and an ancient mentor. Together, they set out on a perilous journey-few believe they will survive.

This isn’t a fairy tale-s3x becomes currency, murder is ordinary, and love doesn’t conquer all.

Everyone loves a hero-good triumphs evil. But few dare to question how victory ripples into consequences. Explore this exciting concept in the Blackened Tablet Series.

I’m adventurous and my carefree disposition is contagious.I’m loyal to a fault and don’t care what expectations or labels society has bestowed upon me. I believe one’s truth is more valuable than anyone’s perception.This part of me writes for escapism—to be free of my mundane day to day and live in a magical world almost as real to me as earth.
