The Humming Blade
a grand fantasy adventure...
This book was written for me. That sounds cynical, but it's true; I wrote the book that the 12-year-old living in my heart wanted to read. I grew up loving The Legend of Zelda, Star Wars, and Redwall. I loved the deeply mysterious nature of those worlds and the bright, vivid characters that inhabited them. I loved the vastness of those worlds, and the sense that despite the conflict or the story happening in the foreground, the background was far larger than I could ever know.
So I made one of those worlds for myself, and for anyone else who loves a good adventure.
Wyatt Arden thinks he leads a pretty normal life. He lives on a boring, everyday farm outside of a sleepy little town called Ven, doing boring chores for his mom when he's not in school. He yearns for a chance to enlist in the Imperial Army and bring some excitement to his life, but he's sure that will never happen. Wyatt soon learns that it only takes one strange dream for everything normal about his life to change. In that dream, he envisions a beautiful, powerful sword, a blade linked to deep magic and even deeper mysteries. The dream precedes an unexpected series of events that lead Wyatt into a harrowing, life-altering struggle for the lives of his friends, his family, and the world as he knows it. Wyatt must face vicious killers, dark schemers, and beings of such great power that their existence was erased from history. His only weapon? The Humming Blade.
