ARION – War Comes to All
The Corrii have not given up. Their spies have long been searching out Herelstrom and its weaknesses. They do not intend to underestimate them again. When the invasion comes, it comes swiftly, with greater numbers and new terrors.
Norri with his friend Gordy and the former Corriian Admiral, Denquinar decide to attempt two almost impossible journeys to reach the Bernadians via the southern mountains and the longer, unexplored sea route to the south, to seek possible help from the Bernadian Emperor and a young man Norri saved, who is the emperor’s younger son.
They have barely left when the great invasion begins and their friends and all the people they love, are caught up in a desperate struggle to survive. Their young wives must flee into the forest from the grimulves and a new, deadly, winged adversary that seeks only to kill all it finds.
Many who never thought of themselves as heroic, find that their choices make them so, as the second great war against the Corrii rushes toward its conclusion.
About the author
David H. Webb lives in Sydney with his wife and their children. Originally he studied at the University of Sydney and Moore College. Later studies in counselling have been helpful in understanding people and
developing complex characters. He set out to write books that he would have read when he was in his teens – a fan of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. His stories are fast moving, with growing sense of dread, with the characters having to make desperate choices. The author hopes that any young person will find the books exciting and hard to put down, but they will also reward anyone for a second reading and deeper thought.
