Stoneweaver – A Clash of Sword and Stone
by Cabe Valion
When a failed expedition leads to the deaths of an entire cohort of Nenevah’s soldiers, she sends her top spy, De Mauriac, to accomplish the formidable task of acquiring an asset she desperately needs. A slave to his addiction for the ‘blossom on the vine’, De Mauriac must bring back his quarry or the sorceress will let him perish.
To travel through the bandit infested Scabrous Hills and onward into the Poisonous Waste, De Mauriac relies upon a cutthroat band of brigands for protection. Haunted by his past, he discovers his target to be only a boy, known as a ‘stoneweaver’, who has a prodigious natural power.
After the kidnapping, De Mauriac and his men soon find that their lives are at risk when the boy begins to use his magic to exact revenge upon them. Taking inspiration in the boy’s rebellious nature, De Mauriac begins plotting a means to defy Nenevah and acquire his own freedom.
