So, I’ve been touting this new work for some time now, and it’s finally ready for some observations and critiquing. For the next few weeks, I will give free PDF copies of the current version of From Blood to anyone interested in reading it, in exchange for critical feedback. A questions, and comments, form will be included.
To whet your appetite, here’s a quick synopsis
Dysart, a castrated mute, travels to his homeland of Volgunther in order to slay a Daemon, who granted him a power from blood.
Wielding blood in many forms, be it runes, brands, or summoning, Dysart must battle his way through several monsters, all the while fighting off his own Daemonic practice. Though imbibing blood grants enhanced abilities, it turns the practitioners of Sang Daemanus into crazed beasts.
So, how can Dysart hope to slay the Daemon, who gave him such a gruesome weapon?
Taught by his grandfather to use the power responsibly, Dysart makes many friends, and enemies, upon the cursed island. He even comes across an opposing practitioner of Sang Daemanus, Tygron, who wishes only for the Daemon, Salamandrus, to continue its reign of terror from the bowels of Volgunther.

Thanks for your help.
