'Rend the Dark' by Mark Gelineau and Joe King is a good beginning to an interesting story. You can read this 78 page novella and call it good or you can continue on.
In a prologue we meet a young boy named Ferran having a vision of his future, which will be fighting monsters. And how he will be linked to his future partner, Elinor. Then we skip to a village best by something strange. Ferran and Elinor have been summoned and they meet a young man named Riffolk and his friend Hil, and Warden Aker. They've been called because something evil has shown up, and it shows up in people, turning them into a sort of zombie. It's a sign of something bigger as Ferran and Elinor travel to a village which is on the verge of an outbreak.
I liked the setting and worldbuilding a lot. I found out later that this is part of a series of linked novellas. I'm reading one called 'Reaper of Stone' now which is about Elinor. I like what these authors are doing and I look forward to reading more.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Gelineau and King, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
