Epik Fantasy Book 1: Hero in a Halfling
October 5th, 2017
Epik isn’t like the other halflings. He can’t bury the desire for adventure in his heart (or only go along when the fate of the world was at stake). He can’t quell his curiosity of magic with fireworks and parlor tricks. He’s spent his entire childhood dreaming of becoming a wizard, and he’s ready to meet adventure head on.
So, he moves out of his mother’s house in the Bog and sets off for the big city. Though Dune All-En isn’t at all what he’d hoped. Every ten years the King of the city-state falls as a new one comes to power. King Brock has vowed to snuff out this endless “game of thrones,” saving his own neck in the process. Fearing a wizard’s plot, he bans magic within the city walls.
Epik finds a room – or rather a closet – with a down on his luck wizard. Gabby is eager to subsidize the rent of his magical supply store but not to teach Epik any outlawed magic. As a group of mountain trolls threatens the city, and Gabby is accused as the mastermind behind it, Epik sees his chance to finally do something, well, epic.
