I am SO HONORED to hear my word brought to life like this.
The story is called “This Rough Magic I Abjure,” and it chronicles the moment in time that Grey, Unseelie prince, decided to leave behind the magical world forever.
Well. Close to forever, anyway.
Thanks so much to the Alternative Stories Podcast with Chris Gregory and Joy Hayward for this amazing snippet from Grey’s life.
Welcome to the series, AMONG THE MYTHOS – an sci-fi fantasy epic spanning twenty thousand years beyond the end of the world.
Within the universe of the Mythos, the People called the Fey are unassailable thanks to the the Unseelie Throne and Seelie Scepter – sentient and unyielding bastions of power greater than any other in the five known worlds.
The source of that magical supremacy is legendarily suspect; from all accounts, they siphon it from their own people.
Grey is next in line to “inherit” the Throne and all its baggage, and he’s not interested in taking his rightful place.
But Fey princes don’t go running off into the unknown without consequence… and Grey knows there’s a price to pay.
