Story One Online

I’ve uploaded the entire first short story of the Astral Chronicle, titled Sunrise Over Infinity. You can read it here. This story introduces the Captain and his crew, and sets the stage for the adventures they’ll be having in the future, as well as setting up the Astral and all the wonderful strangeness it contains.

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 9

Alexia watched as smoke rose from beyond the castle wall. “See,” Panail said. “Nothing you can do to stop it.” Alexia didn’t respond. She didn’t dare to move her eyes from the twisting black line. “The Duke was like a father to me,” she said, more to herself than Panail. “He was the first man …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 8

The Captain lay on a blanket of grass, watching guards make their rounds from over the top of a trimmed hedge. The castle’s elegant walls and towers stretched above him, all made of the same seamless white stone. The palace and surrounding gardens sat on a hill at Cail’s center, overlooking rows of black rooftops …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 7

The Captain leaned his head against the cell wall, feeling the hard wood of the ship’s exterior pressing against his back. He had hoped it wouldn’t come to this.

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 6

Grendel stepped onto the ship, his hand, as always, hovering over his sword. His field partner and immediate superior Sgt. Launcer followed close behind him. It was a small vessel, suitable for exploration and trade. Possibly of Avandran make, although it could be an imitation of the style. It was unlikely there were any weapons …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 5

Allaina struggled with a lever, trying to push it to a different position. She was in the cargo hold, trying to unlock the launch mechanism for one of the smaller boats. She felt something cold press itself up against her neck. Slowly, Allaina turned to see the Captain standing behind her, his sword on her …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 4

The Le-Pras was alive with activity. Allaina was lost amid it all, watching as people came and went around her. Maria was sorting furiously between charts. “It’s not on any of the maps,” she said. The Captain came over and looked at the charts. “That it is not. We’ll need to mark the location.” “Adrian …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 3

Allaina awoke the next morning with a start. Or, she thought it was morning. It was impossible to tell what time it was in the Astral, as there was no sun or moons. She left her room and found the rest of the crew in the galley, eating warm bread and honey. “Look who finally …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 2

Allaina lifted a crate and walked back across the gangplank. She handed the crate to Adrian, who brought it down through a hatch in the deck and into the cargo hold underneath. Allaina walked back across the gangplank and lifted another crate. She must have doing this for at least an hour now, repeating the …

Sunrise Over Infinity Part 1

Through the sky, and onto what lies on the other side. A man stood at the bow of a ship, breathing deeply. It was the first breath under a new horizon. A horizon called Tamaril. The man grinned subtly, then opened a small compass. “Dead ahead,” he said. “We’ll be there before the next sunrise.” …
