Betrayal is the first in a series of fantasy noir mysteries I am writing, and is 99c for kindle edition, and is available as a paperback and on Smashwords. I hope you enjoy it.

Description:

In this debut fantasy / noir series, investigators Tomis and Oath travel Opheria, a world in turmoil, seeking paid work from a variety of clients.

Traveling the roads, they come across a town called GrandOak. The town has seen better days, and has recently been annexed by the powerful Magisterium. Tomis and Oath are contracted by a mysterious woman to investigate the murder of her fiance, a well-respected townsman.

The world of Opheria is a dangerous and immoral place, and in their quest to find the truth about the murder, the duo will have to face mortal danger, and unravel a web of lies and betrayal.

Betrayal has been taken off Smashwords, but is still on Amazon.

Here are previews from the book:

'Rain. The thunder of footsteps. He looked down to see metal arms, deadly maul nestled in them. His feet moved, but he did not move them. Looking around, he saw figures identical to him, rows and rows of golems charging forward. Ahead, the opposing army; but made of flesh. Humans, a small number of Elves and Dwarves. Fierce battle cries on their lips.

His own compatriots were quiet, unfeeling, limbs moving efficiently. The armies clashed. Steel and blood sparked and flew. His own arms swung a maul into someone's face, crushing his skull. No! He did not… could not control it. Blood splattered on his metal body as he stared at the man's dead, accusing eyes'.

'That brought Tomis back to reality. Five hundred gold! A small fortune! This wench must really need help. But that kind of reward always involved danger. The mercenary glanced at his rusty sword. 'What kind of… trouble are you in…er…'

'Lyrissa. Just call me Lyrissa'.

The name sang from her lips.

'Lyrissa. Tell us more about what you need'.

She nodded and a dark shadow cast a pall over her delicate features, her eyes reflecting sorrow. 'My fiancé, Burrick, was murdered recently'. She paused a moment, but did not come close to crying. She had obviously gotten over her tears, and was looking for something else. 'I want you gentlemen to investigate his death, and find out who did it, and why'.


Thank you!

Betrayal is now FREE on Amazon Kindle to download from RIGHT NOW until Sunday! Please check it out, and perhaps, my other works!

http://www.amazon.com/Betrayal-Opheria-Tales-1-ebook/dp/B00AZNONR8

Here is a description for Betrayal, and the Opheria Tales series (second one is being written right now).

Opheria Tales is a noir crime series set in a gritty, medieval fantasy world. Opheria used to be a world ruled by decadent, wealthy and corrupt empires, but massive rebellions rocked and shattered the world, resulting in the Post-Rebellion world of many isolated towns and crumbling cities, and factions grasping for power. The perfect setting for mismatched investigators-for-hire to make a living.

Betrayal: Opheria Tales 1

Traveling the roads, investigators-for-hire Tomis and Oath come across a town called GrandOak. The town has seen better days, and has recently been annexed by the powerful Magisterium.

Tomis and Oath are contracted by a mysterious woman to investigate the murder of her fiance, a well-respected townsman. The world of Opheria is a dangerous and immoral place, and in their quest to find the truth about the murder, the duo will have to face mortal danger, and unravel a web of lies and betrayal.

Can Tomis and Oath solve the case for their client, the enigmatic and seductive Lyrissa, before the murderer decides to end the investigation... for good?

Betrayal: Opheria Tales 1, my fantasy noir short story, has been selected as Book of the Day at SpecFicDaily!

http://www.specficdaily.com

Buy it for only 99c, http://www.amazon.com/Betrayal-Opheria-Tales-1-ebook/dp/B00AZNONR8

The sequel, Torn Minds: Opheria Tales 2 is on the way!

Here is an extract:

'The desperate yell came not from the guards in front of them, but was distant, and seemed to come from the crenellations atop the wall. Tomis and Oath craned their necks to observe, as did the guards on the ground. An elderly man with billowing white robes had climbed atop a crenellation, facing the thirty foot drop, arms out-stretched and eyes closed. The yell had come from a guard running after him, trying to prevent him from jumping.

Peacefully, the man leaped off the wall, arms still spread, and eyes still closed meditatively. The onlookers watched, stunned, as the body descended, robes billowing as the man gained momentum.

Splat.

The hardened investigators looked away or covered their eyes.

Blood had speckled the ground metres away from the point of impact, where the body lay compressed. A pool of blood formed, tracing the cobblestone patterns in the road that travelled the outer circumference of the city walls.

Several guards ran to the spot where the man had landed, crowding over the body and frantically issuing orders. Tomis and Oath caught a glimpse over the shoulders of the guards as they walked past, and although the brief window of inspection they could steal did not yield many details, the glint of green drew their eyes to a distinctive ring on the man's right index finger. A robust, many-faceted green garnet sat on top of the gold frame, with tiny golden wings protruding out over the frame and above the sides of the gem.'
