Tales from the Asylum

Huge thanks to Timy from RockStarlit Book Asylum for giving me the opportunity to participate in the fun "Tales from the Asylum" blog feature!

I had a lot of fun writing a short scene about Dorakion, one of the minor characters in Children of the Dead City.

Noor’s Recent Updates

Noor Al-Shanti is 37% done with The Eagle's Flight: Amazing so far, even the second time reading it. The author uses a third person perspective that doesn't delve into the character's emotions. It's simply described as if we were watching this in a movie and so we'll see little things that will hint at their emotions. At the same time I feel for these characters much more than I often feel in books where we get to hear the characters' thoughts in great detail!

“he did not seem to have any actual training with a weapon, but there was something frightening about the way he fought. Something wild and uncontrolled seemed to have possessed him.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Children of the Dead City

“and the uniform jacket he wore was so tattered and dirty that there could only be one reason he still had it. It must mean something to him, hold some particular importance.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Children of the Dead City

“The fiend had the head of a wolf, but the skin was scaly and serpent-like and the eyes bore an intelligence that far exceeded a wolf's.”
Noor Al-Shanti, Wanderer
