Reading from the first novel of the Kerpen author Stefan Goebels

Beheaded – Der Wille der Schatten (The Will of Shadows) is his first novel and the first part of a trilogy, having already appeared in several anthologies and online magazines with his gripping stories.

An undead on a headless quest. The story takes place in a dark, medieval fantasy world with a supernatural impact. The beheaded undead Crayne, together with the duke’s daughter Amodela, searches for his head in a country haunted by war and black magic. They find out that their repressed past is connected to the threatening events.


On the day of his execution the guardsman Crayne wakes up in a dungeon cell without any memory of his previous life. A little later he is beheaded and his head is stolen by an ominous woman.

From now on Crayne has to live his life as an undead, caught between the world of this world and the realm of the goddess of the dead Arvo.

Together with the Duke’s daughter Amodela, who is connected to him by a curse, he embarks on a dangerous search for his head. Hordes of undead, witches and demons confront them in the path that constantly leads them south … into the heart of darkness … where Crayne hopes for salvation.

The media designer Stefan Goebels lives near Cologne with his girlfriend and works there as a content editor for an online retailer.

In addition to his musical creativity, which found expression in various bands and projects, his enthusiasm for writing has been part of his life since his school days. In the genres of fantasy and science fiction he wrote a variety of short stories, radio play scripts and story elements for an online role-playing game.

On April 1, 2018 his first novel with the title Beheaded - Der Wille der Schatten (The Will of Shadows) was published, which is the prelude of a trilogy.

The author's self-declared goal is to confuse the world, because he loves it when the stories don't necessarily end as expected.
