Virtual Tourist - Neverwinter 9/15/13

Morning!


Neverwinter

Cemetery Section


Some nice purple flowers!


Love all the great creepy components. :)


They even have lichen/mold - the artists really go all out.


One neat thing about stopping to take virtual photos is that it makes me look around. And added bonus is that it helps me find stuff hubby missed on his previous times around. Heh heh


The light coming down was almost a shield of sorts.


While turning on clocks to get to the area we needed before the bad guys found a way through, we were sent to a shadowrealm to find several to activate. Watchmakers guild around here is super hard core!


So gloomy!


Look real hard at the area with the sun. The black cloud beside it is actually being generated by a dragon flying across the sky. You can see it's head and one wing on the left of the cloud.


A player dress. Had seen it in white, but not red. Not sure why she's glowing though. Heh


So deliciously creepy. Notice the shield on the right - Watchmaker's symbol.


Better close up of the Watchemaker's building.


I so LOVED this! A glass floor clock face with the clock gears below - beautiful!


The shaft ran up from the clockface to the ceiling. Gorgeous.


As we keep setting and turning on clocks, secret doors are revealed into long unused corridors. Look at the giant gears!


One of the clocks after we started it up. Water driven even!


More of the insanely sized clock works here.


Another opened dark passage.


This looked totally cool. The ward actually turns like a clock. :)


The baddie we were trying to beat here still beat us. Her goal? The blue dragon on the right. The goal we didn't know about? Getting the information on how to create a Dracolich. She teleported out with her gains before we could do anything.


She did leave us a present though. A giant poisonous spider to play with. o.O


Final clock face. Isn't it the coolest?


There's just so much awesome stuff out in the world!

Novels


JEWEL OF THE GODS

(2015) Fantasy

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!


Excerpt:
"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."





INNER DEMONS

(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!


Excerpt:
The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."



THE PRICE OF MERCY

(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Excerpt:

Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.




CROSS-EYED DRAGON TROUBLES
(2007) Young Adult – Fantasy
“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”

Excerpt:

“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.



WILLING SACRIFICE
(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”

Excerpt:

Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”



IN THE SERVICE OF SAMURAI
(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”

Excerpt:

Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.



VASSAL OF EL
(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”

Excerpt:

Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
