When They Shine Brightest

By Yordan Zhelyazkov

Fantasy | eBook


A character-driven fantasy novel, exploring the theme of loss and how we try to deal with it even when there is no way to do so. Korsak Dryshore, a middle-aged war veteran, is being held directly responsible for the invasion of his home town of Seten. Everyone in Seten, including his family, blames him for losing the last ditch defense against the aggressors. Utterly defeated, and mourning the loss of his eldest son in the conflict, he has spent the last months following the battle away from home. Upon his return, he has to confront the animosity of the populace, made even worse by his bringing a heathen girl back with him. Beaten, downcast and in despair, he is resigned to merely spending the remainder of his days in meek quietude. That would prove impossible, however, as he's soon implicated in an escalating political and religious conflict within the city. To make matters worse, his youngest son and the foreign girl are dragged deep into the whirlwind of the crisis. And in the meantime, They are about to set over Seten."

Hi, my name is Yordan and I'm a fantasy writer from Bulgaria. Here I work with one of the best publishers in the country, Enthusiast, but I also decided to get my work professionally translated into English and self-publish it online. For a bit more info about me - writing has been a hobby of mine for years. Recently I graduated a Masters degree in Creative Writing at New Bulgarian University. I'm insultingly tall. I have a beard and a cat. I love broccoli and ... uh ... yeah, that's enough for now. Plenty more on my website. ;)
