BUY HERE: The Beast of the North: Stories of the Nine Worlds by
The Nine Worlds have been sundered from each other and the gods during the goddess Hel’s War long ago, but in the land of Midgard the years have passed relatively peacefully. Men govern men, and there are wars, there is peace and life is as it should be.
For Red Midgard, times are changing, however. The harsh, freedom-loving northern land faces the animosity of the mighty High King, but also a threat of war with its few allies, as King Morag is rumored to look for any reason to go to war with his allies. Maskan and Sand, thieves of Dagnar, discover a web of conspiracies to topple the king before it is too late, and soon, they have a good reason to tie their fates with those who would fight the king.
But not all is as it seems, and layers of truths and lies make the road dark and dangerous. Our heroes must navigate very murky waters of betrayal, elemental magic, love, and loyalty to save their land and to find revenge.
The Dark Levy: Stories of the Nine Worlds (Ten Tears Chronicles Book 1) by Alaric Longward
It is year 1815. On the verge of adulthood, sisters Shannon and Dana are visiting their wise, old grandmother in Wales on a very special day, and finally learn why their life has been strangely affected by something they have not previously understood. That day, a harrowing creature of the Nine Worlds calls out for special, talented humans of the Tenth world. Our world. Dana performs an irreversible deed that opens the gate to the strange world of Aldheim, and they meet the strange creature calling for them. In this world they find their true calling, their special talents, the truth of the gods and also a world of mystery, cruelty and adversity. Shannon and Dana struggle with their previous relationship as one grows cruel and power-driven, while the other learns to value friendship. Much is demanded of Shannon, who is struggling with her loyalties. Despite the many dangers and their apparently hopeless situation in the new, dangerous world, there is hope, for Shannon has some special, coveted powers of healing, reserved to the chosen of the gods. If she perseveres, she can change the past and bring back even the gods. But the price will be great.
About the author:
Alaric Longward was born 1970, which makes him as old as computer floppy disks. Do not worry if you don’t know what they are.
Throughout his childhood, he found himself curiously attracted to books. This strange hobby did not take anything away from the computer gaming and occasional sports, but the books stayed and the wonderful stories that could be found in his father’s vast library would inspire him throughout his life to appreciate the power of story telling. He loved history, fantasy, and sci-fi.
As time moved on, he graduated from the university with a degree of Master of Political Science, dreamed of a career in diplomacy and ended up making computer games in Nokia N-Gage. He stayed on after the demise of the first serious swing at mobile gaming, and worked as a senior manager and product manager in ICT sector for over a decade, specialising in internet services, innovation solutions, and crowdsourcing.
One day he decided to drive his family nuts, and quit his job to become an author. Now, as a bestselling author of eight books, he hopes to provide you with exciting adventure stories. He is a dad, a husband, and a full time author.
