This is my first completed novel. It is a quest-style fantasy set in a secondary world.
Ancient war between Heaven and Hell unleashed a mysterious power upon the world. Now it is up to an unlikely hero to stop it.
The core idea dates back to a poem I wrote shortly after finishing high school. I made an attempt to write a novel base on that idea back in college in Spring 2007. That time it didn't go anywhere, being abandoned after just one chapter.
I returned to it for NaNoWriMo 2019. The NaNoWriMo goal of 50k words was completed successfully, but I largely stopped writing soon afterwards. I returned to this novel in spring of 2020, during the first COVID-19 lockdown. I ended up tossing some of my work out, and re-writing a few chapters. Then, I continued writing slowly over the summer.
I finally finished the first draft at the start of NaNoWriMo 2020. Writing over 17k words in 5 days. I plan on taking a short break from this project, and returning to implement the edits I have already planned.
