A Smooth Operator
- Jun 22, 2007
Dante’s Blood is a continuation and conclusion to The Dark Muse. Its a story centering around a Hungarian who tries preventing the plans of global domination from a mysterious being who calls himself Khayr ad-Din.
You won’t have to read The Dark Muse to understand what’s going on in Dante’s Blood but it may clear up any confusion you may have. As with all sequels, there will be some places that may be blurred if you haven’t read the preceding work but I’ve done what I can in the outline to avoid the bulk of these problems.
Muse has won a few awards - one of which I have yet to add to my inkwell - so if you read AARs based on that, have at it. If you want to post a comment about Muse, post it here. And as with Muse, you can expect one update per week with an average of 3500 words.
Dante’s Blood will be have a high fantasy setting. There won’t be trolls, dwarves, etc. I’ll be drawing the bulk of my fantasy from lore and things of that nature. A knowledge of this isn’t necessary as I’ll provide all you’ll need to know.
The outline for the story is complete as are the bulk of the characters - including side characters and even some which are incidental. I had promised a chapter release this week but this week has been terribly busy and draining so there is no update. I post this notice now in case you want to review what has gone on in The Dark Muse so you can keep pace with new updates when they’re released.
