Well, you were wrong. Tonight, I revised the first chapter of The Winter Phenomenon, which will likely be my second book.
The Winter Phenomenon is similar to Lucifer's Odyssey in a few key ways. First, there is magic, and we're once again following a person that others in the story would consider a bad guy. But while you could easily argue, after reading Lucifer's Odyssey, that Lucifer was simply Jehovah's nemesis, the same is not the case for The Winter Phenomenon. In Lucifer's Odyssey, if you are rooting for Jehovah, then Lucifer simply has to be your bad guy; Lucifer is the guy on the other side.
Alex Winter, however, is a bad guy. He's the great-great grandson of the Butcher of Lyons, and people have been out to kill him since he was only a baby. Every one of his family members has been killed off by the time he was five, he was forced to live on the streets and in orphanages, and the experience has left him deeply scarred.
Not wanting to die like his sister, defenseless in the streets, Alex trains to be a duelist under a different name, and then at the age of 15, he begins killing the most celebrated wizards and witches of the era, live, in front of all of Nagusia - the capitol of the magical world. Today, I debut the first chapter of The Winter Phenomenon.
The Winter Phenomenon - Chapter 1
It's full of plenty of flaws and who knows how it will look tomorrow, but feel free to take a look. The chapter will be permanently available in the Novels page, along with other chapters from other works. As always, feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!
