The newest entry into the Ash Falls Storyverse was released on Tuesday, with the introduction of Felix North. Created by D.C. Golightly, Felix North follows a murder mystery from the bright lights of New York City all the way to the misty streets of Ash Falls.
The Renewal Of Magic
Quick, what do you think of when I say the word “wizard”? Bushy hair?Pointed hat? Long stick? Distant, inscrutable expression? Questionable motivations?
If I’ve hit on a few points of commonality with you here, it is because the idea of a wizard is so tied up in the tropes that have been created for us by folks like JRR Tolkien, Terry Brooks, and Terry Goodkind. But, what would a wizard in today’s world look like?
It was not a question that I had given any thought to, really. Wizards were not part of my “speculation” for Ash Falls when I created it. However, the mad scientists over at Fiction Vortex saw something a little clearer. Our CEO contacted me one day, saying only “I think you need to read this story.”
Intrigued, I read through D.C. Golightly’s character sketch. It was amazing! We had a bad-ass wizard in a bespoke suit. Wielding a type of magic I had never imagined, much less heard of. Working for a world-spanning shadowy organization. The possibilities were endless! My reply was succinct: “Yes, please.” It was too awesome of an opportunity to pass up.
I Didn’t Mean To Wreck The Train
The story Mr. Golightly has developed for us is amazing. It is filled with unexpected characters and unparalleled powers. The first line of Episode #1 says it all: “I hadn’t planned on wrecking the train when I woke up this morning.”
You know, it just sort of happened. I am such a powerful being that I can derail a commuter train by accident, in the course of my daily activities.
Yeah, that is the character of our protagonist, Felix North, in a nutshell.
I won’t drop any additional spoiler bombs on you, but the whole freaking storyline is like that. What happens when you uproot an astonishingly powerful person and drop him into the middle of Ash Falls? One man against the bastion of renewed gods and dark powers?
Exactly. Nothing good. At least not for the dark powers.
Head over to Fiction Vortex right now and download Episode #1 of Felix North. Why not? It’s currently free to download. Introduce yourself to a whole new kind of wizard, operating in a wholly different way from Gandalf or Allanon.
You won’t be disappointed.
