Shadow Dancer

“Do you, Evander, accept this duty? To guide and guard Prince Caiden for the rest of your mortal life? To serve without fail and if necessary, to forfeit your own life to accomplish this task?”

There was no hesitation in the child’s answer, “Yes.”

“Do you swear to protect our secrets above that duty? Do you swear your loyalty to our cause, and when given the order, will you be able to kill your charge?”

Evander’s voice took on a harder edge, “Yes.”

The seaside Kingdom of Kallenport boasts an oddity: each member of the royal family is raised with a servant who is treated as their equal. A person who exists as a shadow, as both a council and a guard; to mirror the original pair of twins who had founded the country.

Fourteen years ago, Evander was assigned to crown Prince Caiden  with the understanding that he would dedicate his life to the future King- unless the man should prove unworthy. If such a judgement ever came to pass, Evander would be obliged to execute his final duty: kill Caiden.

When the order comes, in the moment of confusion and alarm, Evander hesitates. Can he kill the man he’s sworn to serve? Or will he forfeit everything in an attempt to save him?

SHADOW DANCER is her first work to survive long enough to be published.

Follow me on Twitter @MacieCage – not so reliable but I do post casually mostly writing tips from other authors

Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/maciecage/ – Most reliable source for up-to-date news on my projects

Tumblr: maciecage.tumblr.com – I store a lot of tidbits here, including writing tips and advice as well as ideas for my stories.

I am also involved in http://www.ashengaming.com/ which centers around our wonderful Pathfinder (Tabletop RPG) games. The lovely couple who run it are very good friends of mine and I play in many of their campaigns.

I also participate (with vary degrees of success) in NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. It is a nonprofit site that runs all year long but during the month of November participants have 30 days to write 50,000 words – which is roughly the length of one novel!

It is a great motivator to get started on a book! Even better all donations go towards keeping the site running and supporting various Creative Writing Workshops their website is here: https://www.nanowrimo.org/
