The Warden of Everfeld: Memento
An upcoming novel by Steven D’Adamo
Tentative Publication: autumn 2017
Aston has dreamed of being a soldier and fighting for his home since he was a child. Jaed only wants to escape the memories of war. Both grew up in the midst of the Second Redskael War, which left many communities in Everfeld mourning — if not completely shattered. But Jaed and Aston have found comfort and love in each other.
Now, the disaparate Felding communities are uniting in the name of peace and security. But Jaed and Aston stumble upon a terrible secret that could undo the fledgling alliance and plunge Everfeld into war once more.
Caught in a whirlwind of political intrigue and fleeing those who would stamp out any threat to the alliance, Jaed and Aston must make a choice: run away and condemn the society they were raised in, or fight back to protect those they love.
The Warden of Everfeld: Memento follows these two lovers’ adventure as they struggle to reconcile their pasts and discover the true meanings of identity, honor, loyalty, and love. Their choices could change their lives and Everfeld forever.
I am currently working on the second draft of my first novel. The Warden of Everfeld: Memento is the first piece I have completed in a much wider world-building project. Over the last five years or so, I have dreamed, created, and outlined a fictional world with its own mythology, peoples, and history. My goal is to use individual stories spread out over a wide geographic and temporal area to tell a much broader narrative about this world and the people who live there.
As part one of a loose duology The Warden of Everfeld: Memento is focused on one specific region and period of time in this world. I’ll update this page as more information becomes available!
