Cedric is a respected monk at the Ridderzaal monastery. But before he became a man of the cloth, he traveled the land, fighting trolls alongside dwarves and giants, living among the fearsome Krigares, and studying with elves, wizards and Shenn Frith shamans.
This novelette provides a back story for one of your favorite characters from The Crafter Chronicles. It is a great standalone read as an introduction to the world of Matthew B. Berg, or as a companion piece to his trilogy begun with The Crafter's Son. (And there are no spoilers in here if you haven't yet begun the series!)
Framed around Cedric taking a nostalgic journey through his personal journals, this story is roughly 10,000 words. (About 1/8th the length of the first book.) And, unlike the slower unfolding of The Crafter's Son, this book gets right to the action!
