  • a pair of trolls who need to have a chat with the Highmage (but those poor little girls, who know there’s no such things as troll, can really use their help),
  • And there’s the unicorn and the boy

Of Elves and Unicorns (Book 2 of the Hands of the Highmage)

Goldilocks and the Three Dwarves (Book 3 of the Hands of the Highmage)

Released in May 2017… If the dragon on the cover looks a tad familiar, that’s because there is an exclusive never before published short story in Crossroads of Sin and Other Stories, which is set in the world of Highmage’s Plight, The Dragon’s Curse

Evolving Science Fiction/Fantasy Story

Read Highmage’s Plight, an evolving science fiction/fantasy story project seeking to involve readers in new ways in the digital age. You can enjoy reading the book online or additionally participate by imbuing a character with your spirit. Highmage’s Plight is written and created by D.H. Aire.

If you like epic tales of fantasy with a science fiction edge, then Highmage’s Plight is the science fiction/fantasy story for you. There are interactive stories, but nothing like Highmage’s Plight, an evolving or perhaps it might be called an “intra-active” story, since I’m seeking to engage readers in the creative side of the story. No one else is doing an experiment like DHR2Believe.net, serializing five never before published novels, opening them for input into taking a character in a new direction, making their character evolve and become real, because the character’s exclusive member wants to help these stories evolve –and save the world.

A Planet Where Elvin Magery Rules

In a distant time and place, a human colony ship is forced to land on a life bearing planet, unaware that it is inhabited by elves. When the colonists begin clearing land and enter elvin lands, a war ensues, one that changes the laws of science in subtle ways… while laying a vast stretch of land uninhabitable…

This science fiction/fantasy chronicle takes books where they’ve never gone before, allowing the story beginning, middle, and the yet to be written ending to evolve over time. You can join the cast of characters in this science fiction/fantasy story, which is being serialized, one chapter at a time, bringing out one new installment every week.
