I began writing The End of Old Ways back in 2005. It took me a several years before I fully understood what I was trying to do with writing this story and with the help of several people as both inspiration and motivation, I refined my skills and learned from a great many mistakes. During that time I began to ask myself the who's, what's, when's and every other set of questions I could about the history and future of this set of novels. Over the last several years, I have been working on various other stories, about 12 more, along with trying my best to perfect this single one. This first book of The End of Old Ways is only just the beginning and there will be plenty more to come. I can only hope that anyone who wishes more from me can find the patience to stick with me. I will try my best to get the chapters of this story out to you all as well as all of the others.

Mach Derune is faced with one last oath that he must complete before he could possibly live a happy life. With the newly founded Empire Seas thriving so wonderfully, and his ten years of training as complete as it could be, it is time for him to begin the journey that will enable him to do just that.
Fulfill his Oath
His journey will take him into the lands of his mothers ancestors and beyond. Threats unbound await him that will test the limits of what he will be able to handle, both physically and mentally. But it will be because of friendships new and old that he will be able to follow through with his plans.
The End of Old Ways
After the Great War, the race of Mages were left devastated. Their only hope was exile from the world at large. The Stones of Magic were hidden with protectors so that no one would be able to retrieve them unless they had proper reason to. Or so it was thought.
Rumors of the Stones have been heard and one King is on the hunt for their Power. The King’s quest will thrust a young man out into the world on a quest for vengeance and his own hunt for the Stones Power.
That quest will lead the boy down a road of self-discovery that will reveal to him who he is and what his heritage has been all along. The road will bring to light all the strengths and weakness that are within as he tries to cope with the burdens of authority that are placed on his young shoulders and the tragedies that fill his heart.
The Power of the Stones of Magic is a mighty tool and weapon that can be wielded against the enemy or can be used to destroy and control others. But the insight into ones soul the Stones can give the beholder is another gift altogether.
Mach continues his journey with his comrades. The journey north will be a test of their strength, but it need not be done alone. Family comes in all shapes and sizes, and he will find out just how true that is as he prepares for the next length of his journey.
Fulfilling Promises is a characteristic that Mach Derune prides himself on. However, loyalty is another. What he finds as he travels through Jarthrum will make him question his decisions of what he should do and who he should aide.
The journey to complete a promise begins. With the help of old friends and new, Mach Derune begins his quest to fulfill that last of his promises.
