Review by: Eric Fomley on Aug. 06, 2014 :
When King Dagr has visions of his own demise, he awakes only to find more horror. His restlessness leads him outside his room where he discovers the bodies of his men, stabbed with shards of ice. The sorcerer appears before him with claims that Dagr should recognize him. He soon makes the connection. His long lost and unwanted brother has returned, and he want's Dagr's birthright.

There is an object called the demon stone that Degr is ordered to deliver. The task will bestow Degr' birthright upon his brother, in exchange for the life or his beloved wife Anya. Degr has no choice. But can he allow such evil to be triumphant?

Jake Scholl has a vivid imagination. The scenes he creates in Demon Stone are vivid and often full of detail. Demon Stone sometimes lacks certain details that would make the story more powerful, but delivers an imaginative world and a solid main character that makes up for it. The ending of the short story suggests that there will be future tales of Dagr Brightsword and I do look forward to reading them. The short story comes in at around five thousand words and is well worth the .99 price tag.
