We all know of the Seven Original Sins; Wrath, Envy, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Gluttony and Lust. However, what if I told you there was another Sin. One that was never spoken of; one that no one cares for. Well... There is an Eighth Sin... "The Eighth is always so mysterious yet delusional. Why deny your existence, accept it already and end your suffering. The choice is yours... Eighth." ~ Anonymous
Brothers Corin and Darick Lochlea return from a ritualistic hunt to find their village razed to the ground by demonic magic. They are entrusted with a valuable gem called the Lifestone and a perilous quest to return it to the Temple of Nefarious on a desolate snowy mountain called Mount Lonely. There the Dragonieth will activate, compelled to save the kingdom from annihilation. Quests are not straightforward. No one tells the truth, especially by the power of the Dragonieth. ----- <|>--------- [Updated and continued version on Tapread]
Tatiana Eleanor Cohen just came back from her solitary vacation after another successful murder case that got her promoted as the first assistant to the chief supervisor of the Underground Crime Investigative Commission, Sir Roman Walters; although the woman was not altogether happy about it. She craved for action and the thrill of it, not moping around doing paperwork and attending meetings that would probably bore her to death. Apart from that, Tatiana didn't like the fact that her boss wholeheartedly welcomed a stranger to their department and practically chose her previous line of work for him. Still, Cohen couldn't brush off the horror that she felt when she saw the man's face. It was strikingly the same face she sees every night in her sleep. The very face of her murderer. Strangely enough, piles of corpses went popping around her adopted sovereign. And Tatiana is determined to prove that this mysterious man has something to do with it. Or, does he really?

A girl who grew up with psychological abuse, must come to terms with her present reality. Other stories include the world that led up to the events of the two civil wars in That Time I Was Shot With A Guillotine Gun, And Lived To Tell The Tale. Reincarnation is actually a thing. Some of these are a slightly different genre, called Magical Realism. Many of the later novellas I would write would be more like these stories, rather than my earliest novella.
