C2 Shades of Magic

Decades after the worlds have come apart, Red London is peaceful and thriving under the Maresh Empire. Believing that one day the magic separating the different worlds would come undone, Prince Maxim is searching the land for powerful magicians who can travel between those realms. Frustrated by his son’s negligence of their own kingdom, King Nokil banishes Maxim to Verose, also known as the Blood Coast, to redirect his focus. Upon his arrival, Maxim encounters rough bandits, hoodlums, and worst of all, the unruly soldiers of the royal military. However, his troubles don’t end there, as a ship with a dangerous looking crew has docked at the harbour…

C3 Shades of Magic

Troubles arise for Prince Maxim when the notorious ship, the Iron Grip, docks at the Blood Coast. He discovers that in the past, Arisa, the Pirate Queen, has sadistically assaulted the local royal soldiery, leading to the demise of any troops that opposed her, and leaving only Isra alive. Maxim further learns that not only is Arisa a wielder of powerful forbidden bone magic, she is also Isra’s aunt. Under the cover of night, Isra moves alone to put an end to the Iron Grips moving into the town, but is stopped by Maxim. Together they venture into Verose in search of Arisa and her gang. In the Black Torch tavern, Arisa announces that she is holding a tournament in which the winner will earn a place on her ship, providing they first survive a match with her. In a moment of high tension, Isra loudly proclaims that she will join the tournament – for the sole reason of bringing Arisa to her knees.

Hot-headed, arrogant, and untested, Maxim found himself in Verose, better known as the Blood Coast, and up to his neck in trouble. Determined to make a name for himself and assert the power of the crown in this insalubrious backwater, he fell in with the local garrison, and was taken under the wing of Isra, an experienced if battle weary soldier. Skilled in the illegal art of bone magic, Arisa rules the Verose with a violent fist. Isra is both her niece – and the only survivor of the Verose garrison’s attempt to wrest control back from the Pirate Queen. But Arisa has overreached. Seeking new members for her crew, she has announced a fighting tournament, with the winner gaining the right to face Arisa in combat. As Isra predicted, she must defeat Maxim in order to face off against her aunt, Arisa the Pirate Queen. Using all her expertise, Isra bested Maxim in single combat, and took the prize.
