Weekly Read Along: Tendrils of Darkness
Here at YABC we are excited to be sharing weekly installments of Will Spero's novel Tendrils of Darkness. Read on for more about Will, his book, and check back each week to read more of Tendrils of Darkness!
Meet Will Spero!
Will Spero grew up in a world of Dungeons and Dragons, David Eddings and The Princess Bride. A time when heroes were meant to be, well, heroic, and villains kept the blackest of hearts. These early indulgences to his imagination might explain why he made a career out of embellishing the ordinary (a.k.a. “marketing”). Will enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids as well as a lap-sitting terrier. When he is not conquering the world of the mundane, he writes fantastical stories for any who wishes to read along.
Meet Tendrils of Darkness!
Assassins have been sent forth, an unthinkable kidnapping committed, one king is being manipulated while another is stabbed in the back. Caught in this game of intrigue and deception, a reunited band of Alliance members must uncover a sinister agenda or face becoming victims themselves. The dice have been cast, destinies intertwined and an ancient prophecy surfaces. But the deeper the band delves, the more questions remain. Can solving a mystery from the past be the key to events of the present? Will the arrival of a tormented stranger help their cause, or lead them down a dark and dangerous path? And perhaps the most important question of all: does any of it matters, or are their deaths as well as everyone they have ever known, already foretold in the threads? Enter the land of Draza and enjoy the first of this epic trilogy filled with adventure and magic, war and revenge. A tale BookIdeas writes they were "compelled to keep reading" and "is reminiscent... of David Eddings's The Belgariad". Be enveloped by the Tendrils of Darkness.
