Reading by Mary Cronos from her High Fantasy series “Nafishur Praeludium”
Nafishur is a high-fantasy epic that begins as a classic vampire novel in Paris to lead its undead protagonists into a strange world – a parallel world to ours, full of magic and in which they quickly realize that vampires are by no means at the top of the food chain. They meet Nafish who are like fire or stone, who can fly or are more spirit than body.
Nafishur Praeludium is the “prelude” to this great adventure. First, our heroes have to find each other – and they have to learn that they can trust each other. Enough trust to explore a new world together.
The readers of Mary Cronos can decide who they want to follow on this journey. The vampire hunter Dariel, who is struggling with the new, undead life and its perpetrator Ginga. Or the semi-vampire Cara, who dives into the world of magic and is on the trail of a family secret whose extent she cannot yet guess.
To say it in the style of a well-known advertisement:
Two different and identical stories: In one of them a man meets his worst nightmare, in the other one a woman believes to dream. In one woman death is feared and in the other life is defended. Today they share nothing but the cover design and the author. Read them both and make up your mind!
