The Night’s Violin

Blood, Sweat, and Fears

“I did enjoy, again, learning more about the Sylvanni and having (yet another) named “weapon”, with a deep and interesting ability—the violin allows the user’s desires to come true in the form of magic, yet a single wrong note played leads to death.”

—Celine, Goodreads review

Darkness calls the tune.

Fiss’Q, swordswoman and senator of the Republic of Arokhnai, becomes embroiled in a plot to steal the fabled Night’s Violin, a magical Sylvanni musical instrument of great power. On the run since using it against the Manticore’s minions, the Black Bard of Valdikan turns to Fiss’Q for help. Little does she know that she’s being stalked by a sinister, silver-eyed Shadowmancer, a sorceress in the employ of the slavelords of the Obsidian Island. Will Fiss’Q be able to protect the troublesome troubadour, survive against the sorceress, and navigate the romantic and perilous path of heroism in the face of all but certain death?

Sagas of Irth 3


Dane Vale lives in Chicagoland, where he conjures up Sword & Sorcery and Fantasy fiction when he’s not relentlessly critiquing his twin brother’s Science Fiction writing. He owns at least one spear, a war hammer, and a rapier, and is an avid reader and student of history. He dodges drunk texts from Dionysus, and believes that there should be far more megaliths in America. He cooks Italian food with verve, has a spirit-bond with wolves and crows. His favorite cities are Bronze Age Knossos, Iron Age Carthage, Medieval Constantinople, Renaissance Venice, and Paris at any time.
