Dreams of the Dying by Nicolas Lietzau

Horror starts in our minds 

“In a city of dreamers, there are bound to be nightmares.”

When a contract leads Jespar Dal’Varek, mercenary and professional cynic, to the island nation of KilĂ©, he sees it as a chance to turn the page.

He quickly finds that the “Land of Opportunities” and it’s glittering metropolis walk on a tightrope. While the upper class lives in luxury, a controversial decree has birthed an insurgency among the poor.

As Jespar learns that the First Magnate has fallen into a supernatural coma and that it’s his mission to find out what caused it, he realizes that in a city of dreamers there are bound to be nightmares. And that sometimes, it’s only a thin line between the sleeping and the awoken.

The novel is 100% free to read on my Patreon, but patrons get chapters one day in advance.

Note: Dreams of the Dying contains some graphic sexual content, graphic violence, and harsh language.

May 8, 2019: Novelizations of movies and video games are not my usual cup of tea, but I am willing to make an exception for this project. Nicolas Lietzau was the lead writer of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim total conversion mod Enderal: Forgotten Stories, acclaimed for its gripping story, brilliant characterization, and beautiful setting and world. So, when he announced a book based in the same universe as Enderal (a world called Vyn, the setting of three other total conversions for games in The Elder Scrolls franchise), fans had every reason to [more . . .]

Stands on it own

By Jonas Winkelmayer, member

May 26, 2019: Caveat: I’m not a native speaker, so forgive any typos and odd wording.

Having been a fan of this writer’s work ever since playing Enderal back in 2016, I was excited to hear he’s expanding the universe. As it’s a spin-off that centers on one of the fan-favorite characters, Jespar, I was a bit worried at first that the novel wouldn’t speak to someone not obsessed with the guy. Four chapters in, I’m glad to say my fears were unfounded.
