The Golem War is over. One year to the date of final victory over the automaton armies of an evil wizard sect, the kingdom states of the Third Continent gather in the human kingdom of Vastervik to party. The guests of honor are all of the known surviving members of the 19th Legion (popularly known as the Dragon Legion), the military unit that ended the Golem War via mysterious, unknown actions. In the morning, Vastervik awakens to find two Legionnaires murdered and another the main suspect. Panic slowly grows among the Queen’s men. The 14 surviving members of the 19th are the most popular men in the continent, and neither the dwarves nor elves would dare move against them. The Queen needs someone who can stand up to the 19th to solve the murder, so she turns to the 15th surviving member of the Legion who none may mention without facing the penalty of death, a man locked away in the deepest, darkest cell. With the Legion in crisis, the Queen turns to the one man that she can trust to stand up to the 19th to find out who’s killing the greatest heroes of the Continent.
WHEN THE SHADOW SEES THE SUN is the realization of a concept of a brilliant creative mind that recognized certain things in himself, dark things. Things he thought he might not overcome. He conceived this idea, partly in jest, but more in earnest desire. A book focused on creative souls who experience depression and struggle with horrors that they exorcise by putting them to paper, but just can’t always let go of that way. He wanted there to be a book out there for creatives (and others who might benefit) by creatives to address the struggles so many endure and to offer ways to cope, to deal, and to move on. To overcome. Logan L. Masterson lost his battle with what plagued him on March 29, 2016. And this book, his idea, is now a reality, to help bring to light the issues creative souls do endure, many similar to anyone else, some unique to our own little family. All proceeds from this book will go to a variety of charities, local as well as state and national, to promote suicide intervention and prevention as well as to assist with working through and surviving depression, with a focus being on those who are artists, writers, performers, etc. affected by this.
