Step out and fly away … with a new fantasy from Fantasy Magazine!
I had so much fun narrating this captivating new fiction – I WOULD by Benjamin C. Kinney releasing this week in the July issue of Fantasy Magazine.
Kinney creates a world of magic in this bewitching story that is filled with rich characters and endless possibilities. Endless possibilities, that is … if you happen to be a seer.
A seer is a person who prophesies future events, and in I WOULD, Knira, is one such person. She receives her visions through the constellations in the sky. Knira however, is currently being held captive in a jeweled castle, by robber Queen, Iroda, Warden of the Tollgate. Queen Iroda wants to know what Knira sees in the constellations, and she will stop at nothing to get a glimpse of these visions. Two visitors soon arrive at the castle, Atyce Dragon-Slayer and her traveling companion, Despina – who is dressed in full mail regalia, with sword ready. The evening begins with a feast to welcome the visitors, … although these visitors are not really welcome. Each person in this intimate party, has their own feast in mind. As the tension mounts, Knira needs to find a way to cast her eye to the sky, so she can hatch a plan of escape. In one quick moment, she gets away from the guard with just enough time to throw open the shuttered windows. She stares into the sliver of night, and her visions immediately begin to unfold. She wonders “what would our lives be if we failed to strive for something glittering beyond our grasp?” If Knira decides to takes one of the paths that is indeed, glittering beyond her grasp … just how would it play out? As she is dragged away from the window, we soon learn, that there are many ways … to interpret a vision.
I WOULD can be found in Issue 69 of Fantasy Magazine. If you’d like to listen to to this story, please visit Fantasy Magazine here where you can listen or read the story, free of charge.
