Back in October, we welcomed author James Crofoot to discuss his debut book, The Journeys of a Different Necromancer. You can check out that interview here. James is back to promote his new release, The Continuing Journeys of a Different Necromancer.
Thomas now views his magic as less than good, but he must raise one more army. This one not of his creation, though. For the first time he learns fear of the undead. More than ever, he longs to see the waters of the great sea to the west. Will he find peace there? Will Christina and he find a home with the people of the shores? Maybe. But, maybe he’ll have to fight magic darker than his own to keep his new home.
Maybe he’ll have to fight magic so dark that even a half demon witch fears it and must help.
The Ambassador looked away. “We will fight ourselves then. I will put swords in the hands of teachers. I will put spears in the hands of painters. We will arm the singers and dancers, and we will die! The great libraries where nations send the young to learn will be no more.” He paused and looked back at Thomas. “Come and see what we will die for, come with me to Salat.”
In silence, Christina had walked beside him for the length of the conversation, but now spoke up. “Let’s go, Thomas. Let’s at least see this place before it falls into the hands of the south.”
Thomas looked at her sideways. Her insistence in not understanding what he did with his knowledge was beginning to irritate him. She would try to talk him into doing what he now considered an evil. He would go, but he would create no army.
