History was remembered, but the past was forgotten. As the flames of war recede, a spirited Rhen Tallesen sets off on a quest to the far side of Cerenea. However, the machinations of those wielding power do not pause their great game for Rhen. Soon he will discover there is more to his quest than he thought.歴史は記憶されても、過去は忘れ去られた。戦争の炎が遠のくと、威勢のいいレン・タレセンは、セレニアのはるか遠くへと、冒険の旅に出る。しかし、権勢をふりかざす権力者の陰謀が、レンとのパワー・ゲームをとどめることはない。まもなく、その探求の旅が思っていた以上のものであると知る。
Thank you for reading this far! This book represents about 4 years of writing which started as a hobby. When writing Reign of Phyre, I was inspired and influenced by numerous fantasy books, dramas and games. To me, fantasy represents an escape from reality, whether it is in a game, a book, or on the TV. And as I began to write, I learnt that ultimately as the writer, I had complete control to construct and mold not just the character that I would have played in a video game, but the entire world. I think anyone who grew up playing RPG games or watching or reading series such as Game of Thrones or The Witcher would enjoy reading this. Magic, ancient powers, an unforgiving world, heroism and loss.
Playing games gave me the creativity and inspiration to write a book. And though it is much harder than playing games, I encourage you all to give it a shot! Set achievable goals. Start small. Write a short story. Go from there.
