Aethosphere Chronicles: Storm of Chains

Length: 147 pages2 hours


Drish Larken used to be a noble, used to live a life of ease in the royal court of the Unified Kingdoms of Ascella, but all that changed the day the Hierarchs and their Iron Empire descended over the capital of Throne, laying siege with airborne juggernauts and land-based assault machines. With the Great Skies War lost and the Iron occupation solidified, dramatic changes have come to the former Ascellan capital, and now Drish’s life is defined by what he’s not, and a hero is definitely at the top of that list.

However, while working late one night, Drish’s paradigm of willful collaboration and blind acceptance is put to the test when he intercepts an imperial arrest order, with not only the name of his estranged father on it, but him as well. Panicked and seeking absolution, Drish goes on the run, plunging into the seedy underbelly of the Ascellan Resistance to find the answers he needs to restore his name.

Will teaming up with a sprightly young woman and a notorious pirate be the solution he seeks? Or, in an effort to protect his future, will he betray those that fight for freedom in order to climb back into the comfortable folds of the Iron Empire?

Storm of Chains is a novella length book and part of the Aethosphere Chronicles, which outlines the past exploits of some of the main characters from Aethosphere. In this installment we follow the events that precede Drish Larken coming aboard the Chimera.

Don't worry if you haven't had any prior exposure to Aethosphere, or any of the Chronicles, as this tale has been written to stand alone.
