Tamber ForestThe Tamber Forest gets its name from the strange sounds the wind makes when it blows through the blaizewoods. Some believe it is haunted for this reason, though others say it is only the gypsies who live in the woods, trying to scare off visitors. Whatever the cause of the strange sounds, the enchanting blaizewood trees found within are one of the wonders of Arinn. Said to grow nowhere else, the bark of these trees takes on the quality of light around them. In the moonlight, they glow like ghostly bones, but in the day the shine like sticks of honey. Sadly, the dangerous reputation of these woods means that few are able to enjoy their singular, otherworldly beauty. We hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the world of Arinn. If this taste has you curious, be sure to check out the full length novel set in this world. This unique tale is not your typical fantasy novel, Yes, you'll find monsters, dungeons, harrowing escapes, magic portals, a humor, an ancient artifact, and much more but above all This is the story about the importance of family, faith, and the courage to do the right thing. Here's the official teaser:
