The bad, dark, evil, greedy,..., side is represented by a strain of humans once exiled who draw upon the energy of the land to achieve their goals at the expense of others.

Lost myself in the world of Galddor, his apprentices and the Dragons. Applaud C. McKee on his amazing world building and story that drew me in and kept me reading into the night.

Highly recommended.

I have done some type of art most of my life and graphics as well as web design for the past ten years. I love the creative aspect of graphics and art as well as music. Creativity is utmost in my endeavors. I love to build something new from nothing.

Ya know, it’s funny how many things a person decides they want to accomplish in their lives. How many of us actually get to do it?
