Part 6 is up on Silver Blade!
Being a Chosen One sucks, in Hero’s opinion. The big questions in his life don’t revolve around how to ask out the local village girls or whether his birthmark (a bright blue metallic star in the middle of his forehead) is ever going to fade.
No, he gets saddled with a Destiny. It’s not like he’s the usual Chosen One type, either. He’d rather follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Dark Lord, complete with burning down villages when he feels like it. And while life is never dull--he's kidnapped by rangers, haunted by a bossy ghost, and there's the obligatory quest, complete with dragon--nothing postpones his Destiny.
Hero really hopes he has a choice in fulfilling the prophecy--the one that says he will kill his father when he turns fifteen. But what if he doesn’t?
(I have a summary of previous installments on my LJ.)
Hope you enjoy! :)
