Flash excerpt from Tracy Falbe's newest fantasy novel Savage Storm: Rys Rising Book II.

From Savage Storm: Rys Rising Book II by Tracy Falbe

Dacian and Onja entered the tower with the rushing crowd of rys. They mounted the marble platform and entered the levitation shaft. They went first to the Nebakarz library and secured it with spells and then they checked all the private chambers of the priests and collected their journals and warding crystals. With these potentially important things in their possession, Dacian and Onja allowed the other rys to loot the tower and glut themselves on righteous destruction. It suited the new King and Queen to let their willing subjects strip the tower of furnishings and smash Nufalese d├ęcor. Dacian and Onja would remake their new stronghold to suit themselves.

From the observatory, they watched the rys rushing through the tower in an ecstasy of possession.

Looking down the center of the tower that sang with insurrection, Onja said, “The tabre will never take back this place. Never.”

Dacian wholly agreed but warned, “Yet we shall surely have to defend our new kingdom.”

“After this night many of our rys will volunteer for such service, and we shall train them to fight,” Onja said.

Visions of war paraded in Dacian’s mind. With Onja and rys warriors at his side, he would cross the frontlines of history and Nufal would shudder within its shell of civilization.

About the novel:

Filled with righteous rage, Dacian and Onja spread violent chaos across two realms. In the tribal kingdoms of the west Onja sees a whole civilization that she must harness if the rys are ever to destroy the hated tabre of Nufal. No longer hobbled by dreams of rys and tabre unity, Dacian crafts enchanted weapons and trains the rys to fight. Onja commands Amar to raise an army. She ambitiously decides to abolish the religions of the western tribes and to install herself as their new Goddess. Aided by her magic, Amar daringly overthrows monarchies and celebrates with his outlaws in the palaces of the vanquished. The servants of the rys revel in Onja’s grandiose vision, but the Nufalese humans and their tabre masters have barely begun to realize their danger. When Onja enthralls the savage Chatapaka people of the remote north and unleashes their brutal hordes upon vulnerable Nufalese settlements, the militia is overwhelmed. Cruce Chenomet and his comrades struggle to save the fleeing settlers. Cruce quickly loses hope but keeps his courage as he confronts the savage storm.
