Change of Fortune: Prequel to The Tome of Syyx.

    A Fateful Force Origins Story: Prequel Short Story to the Tome of Syyx

    Change of Fortune takes place five years before the events of the Epic Fantasy The Tome of Syyx. It shows Akke as a young street kid, doing what she must to survive in the corrupt city of Newport. Little does she know, that on this fateful day, her life will be forever changed.


    The Tome of Syyx


    Orcs and hobgoblins are far from the only threats to peace on the frontier.

    When Zom, Akke, and their team of misfits, defeat a foe that refuses to bleed, they find themselves drawn into a web of peril that goes far beyond anything they’ve experienced before.

    Dragons are rumored to once again fly, and an imprisoned god returns to plague the world. To overcome the odds and defeat the forces of darkness, they must seek out unlikely allies and put aside rivalries.

    But is the enemy of my enemy my friend? And can all friends be trusted?

    Street gangs, corrupt merchants, and a powerful thieves guild. What could go wrong?

    Fighting orcs and hobgoblins on the frontier has seasoned Akke, but her return to the city of her birth could prove just as challenging.

    In a race against time to rescue an old friend, Akke and Ailuros land in the middle of a brewing gang war, where a person’s safety must be bargained for with more than just gold.

    But Akke must be careful what she promises and to whom, for dangers lurk everywhere. Some of them harder to see than others.
