New Short Fiction: “The True Son” by Vanessa MacLaren-Wray

The True Son (front cover)

We are excited to announce the publication of “The True Son” by Vanessa MacLaren-Wray.

As foster-son to the king, Corren’s technically a candidate for the kingship, a position filled only at the discretion of the matriarchs of Jeska. He doesn’t want the job — Corren’s goal in life is to be the best guardsman ever, become a senior commander, and serve at the word of his foster-brother Tymon.

Unfortunately, there’s one more candidate: the king’s true-son, Yutek-en, who’s determined to claim the post. Yutek-en craves control. He relishes hurting people, and loves nothing more than being hated.

No matter what, Corren will protect Tymon — and Jeska — from this monster.

Available now in digital editions from most online booksellers, “The True Son” is the newest release in our Dragon Gems short fiction collection, and the first entry into the world of the upcoming “The Unremembered King” series.
