Gates of Uunglarda

.

Whispers in the Silence,
Calling;

Shadows through the Light
Are Falling,

Tenderness escaping
The Grasp;

Hopelessness like manacles
Clasp;

Wounded,

Waiting
Among the reeds;

Yearning,

Aching,
For the Simplest Needs.

.

Whispers in the Night Wind,
Moaning;

Desperation in the Heart,
Owning;

Yet Hope Survives
In spite of Pain,

Lingering amidst the
Icy Rain;

Fearful,

Longing,
Against the Fates;

Brightness,

Spinning,
Opening the Gates!

A Standing in Shadows Poetic Preview.

Although certainly darker than Dark Fey:  The Reviled (book one),(Book Two) Standing in Shadows does not incorporate this level of horror simply for the sake of it. One does not need to open the pages of a book to discover the unthinkable, as the darkness typically embodied in fantasy genre stories by some terrifying being or creature is very much alive in our own reality and this is the underlying motivation for the darkness woven into Dark Fey.  Standing in Shadows was based in great part on the terrifying, yet true-life events of the Lord’s Resistance Army or LRA, a rebel militant group in Uganda that has for over 20 years has abducted children from their homes; forcing them to commit horrifying acts of violence against each other and their own people. These children suffer a very real Integration and, like the childfey of Jyndari, they endure violence, starvation, multiple rapes and beatings at the hands of truly sadistic overlords.  This is how the Reviled came to life and became the horrifyingly cruel beings depicted in Dark Fey.
