Spotlight for Darren T. Patrick Author of The Cloudstone Key




In the remote mining village of Aystin, Karsen Morgate secretly longs to explore the world outside the town walls; but instead dutifully spends his nights protecting the precious Cloudstone tiles–mined by his father, and engraved with mystical symbols and lore by the reclusive Adept Noxyn. When his half-brother, Petr, commits a gruesome crime, Karsen is forced to flee his home, carrying with him a tile depicting a unique artifact–the Ennae–entrusted to his care by the Adept himself. Alone, ailing, and on the run, Karsen must find help, find his way, and decipher the true meaning of the Ennae. For he soon realizes that he is being pursued by the dark brotherhood of the Shroud, and that he has somehow become an unwilling pawn in an ancient conflict.

The Shroud is stirring.
The world of Tholann is in danger.
And young Karsen Morgate is in the middle of it.

About the Author:
I’m a fan of story. Full stop. Science Fiction & Fantasy, in particular. The ability to create fantastical worlds and explore them through the eyes of heroic or tragic characters has always fascinated me.

I can trace my passion for reading back to my mother, who handed me my first fantasy fiction paperback at age twelve and told me that “I’d like it”. As to writing, I have my father to thank for that. He spent countless hours with me in front of a clunky word processor and told me that “I’d get it.” Turns out all these years later, they were right!

I’m excited to bring my first fantasy fiction trilogy to life – The Rithhek Cage. The first book (The Cloudstone Key) will be available online in late August 2013.
