My character profile for my new book, “Repercussions Abound” stops today to discuss perhaps the most beloved character in the series; Anvar Greenlith. He is Linvin’s uncle on his mother’s side and the closest thing he has had to a father for many years. When Linvin was studying and then in the army in Valia, only Anvar came to visit him. Years later, when Linvin came home, Anvar helped him assimilate to his new role as the head of the Grithinshield Trading Company. Anvar guided him in his search for the Red Sapphire and taught him the basics of magic so he might use it. As an Orange Magician, Anvar is powerful in his own right in spite of his advanced age and diminutive stature. He killed his share of goblins and destroyed half of the Mandrean capital of Marinhalk. Now Anvar has been kidnapped by Mandrean’s evil savant Necromancer. He was taken in the spring and Linvin was given an ultimatum. Either Linvin surrenders himself for execution before the first frost in Marinhalk or Anvar will be killed. It is late summer as the book begins and there is no sign of Linvin. The reason for his absence? He was struck on the head and has lost his memory. Linvin believes his name is Argentoe and he is working on a farm in the territory. There is no thought of Anvar or his plight. Ever the optimist, Anvar continues to hold out hope, even in the face of the one person allowed to be in his company; Necromancer. The two play chess every day and act like they are not adversaries. Anvar is a terrific character. He is the type of person you sit down and have a beer with. Take the title of the book to heart, though. This is a tough one to call.
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
