Day 31 Winterhaven by Gilbert M Stack
March has come and gone amazingly quickly and as I began with one of my fantasy series, I thought I’d end the journey with the other. Winterhaven has been a labor of love for me going back to my senior year in college. After about six years of tinkering with it, I finally wrote the first draft while I was researching my dissertation in England. That draft led to many more and more than twenty years later I finally finished it and wrote two sequels that have been my honor to share with all of you.
In its largest sense, Winterhaven is the story of the last outpost of the Ardenesse who rallied to the call of their God, Vapin, and left their world to wage The War of Night in their current land. They have had their share of victories, defeats and betrayals, but now, centuries later the descendants of those original men and women think that the great deeds of their world are confined to the long past Age of Heroes. In Winterhaven, they begin to find out that they are very wrong and if my heroes and heroines survive the struggles of the first few books they will realize that the fate of many worlds will ultimately depend on the strength and courage of the last descendants of the Ardenesse and their Duchy of Winterhaven.
