About The Herannon Chronicles
I invite you to experience a fantasy world with some touches of our 'reality'.
The Herannon Chronicles is the title for a series of novels, novellas and short-stories set in a fantasy world involving dungeons, dragons, swords and magic, where the so-called 'heroes' are not always worthy of such a title and sometimes they are as disturbed and cruel as their enemies.
Even when the bitterness of a warrior is as strong as the arm that wields the sword, or the arcane power of a wizard is as intense as his spite, legendary tasks are performed - and if they end up into something Good, it may be just by chance.
However, even in a so conflituous world there still are some valiant individuals willing to make the difference, hoping to prove - even for themselves - that honor, friendship, kindness and altruism can make all the difference in the eternal struggle of Good against Evil... that cannot always be easily differentiated.
Keep up with stories full of suffering, manipulation, violence and perversion, where even the most noble goals not rarely justifies the most terrible means used to achieve them - and the price to be paid won't always do the compensation.
Discover the Wide World
The elves once more fought Aenlyth the Devourer in her own territory of the Shady Realms. The evil superior entity was defeated and to prevent her from returning, the Elven Lords have sacrificed themselves. A new age of hope and peace has begun, or so it seemed...
The vanquish over Aenlyth hasn't destroyed the Evil itself. Outside the elven kingdoms there's no safe place for the elves. The humans grows in number and ambition while spreading through the lands. Under the ground other forces are moving, and even the banished dragons are agitated. Priests and cultists of forgotten religions arise from the shadows, while ancient powers awakens.
The only way to the Powers to interfere in the world is through their avatars, to which they are trapped and this way vulnerable. Certainly there's more than one champion that could confront and even destroy them. But this doesn't mean that the superior entities have turned back to the world's problems... Actually they are carefully choosing their fighters for a war yet to come.
It would be a problem if their chosen ones didn't consent about being used as weapons...
Novels x Novellas
The narrative genres used by me are the Novel, the Novella and the Short-story. To those not familiar to such concepts, it may be considered in a simplified manner that the Novel is a kind of text that has a main nucleus, but not necessarily only one, other plots unfolds simultaneously, it's a text with a large volume of events and diffused on the time that the plot unfolds. The Novella is a kind of narrative between the Short-story and the Novel, both in technical matter of narration as text size, and is usually more dynamic and with an uninterrupted frame. The Short-story is a narrative around a single conflict, with few characters.
The Novels and Short-stories will be independent and complementary series that I will use to experiment and improve new narrative styles, exploring new compositions. For the readers, the difference will be in the possibility to know more about the Wide World.
My novels are published in Portuguese by Chiado Editora, from Portugal, and my novellas and short-stories are self-published via Amazon KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) and Kobo Writing Life, e-books only.
