The Last War Saga is a series of high fantasy novels inspired by an actual Dungeons & Dragons campaign I create(d) and run on Friday nights over Roll20 and Skype. The characters Tannyl, Alexander, Sachihiro, Jaydan, and, in book 3, Robert Green, are based on the player characters, Kevin, Brittany, Sage, Nick, and Zach. The campaign has been such a blast that I could not resist building a series around it.
But, what's it about? She was just a lost eight year old girl with red hair when they found her. The circumstances were odd, that much is true, but she was just a child. She needed protecting. She needed guardians. But what is she truly? Before long, strange magic manifests from the small child, equally awe inspiring as it is terrifying. Does she control the fire and light or do they control her?
And then there is Maira, the striking woman that destroyed their home and continues to terrorize the group at every turn. She has taken a special interest in Tannyl, but the elf is more concerned with righting the wrongs of his dark past, though it is becoming increasingly difficult to resist her. Shadows are rising from Alfuria, the very world beneath their feet. Sometimes they call, wishing for an unending embrace. Dragons have risen from myth and legend, stalking land and sky. The roar of such beasts shakes even the most resolute warrior. Shadows, gods, dragons, and the girl with red hair. What is true and what is merely illusion? Adelaide is undoubtedly important. That may be the only certainty.
