Haruffa Tales by Kenneth E Hautala

BEYOND THE CONSTRAINTS OF TIME, LIFE, AND DEATH, THERE ARE POWERFUL UNSEEN FORCES.
Beyond the constraints of Time, Life, and Death, there are powerful unseen forces; these forces oversee the movements of life as the balance between good and evil heaves like the waves of the sea. And within the spiral of time, an eternal love causes the chords of the soul to thrum with an unrelenting anthem. This living, evolving melody is etched into the psyche of a most unlikely hero—a young, sickly child who was, by all accounts, not expected to survive, let alone be conceived.
In the city of Madra, two healers joyfully anticipate the birth of their long-awaited son, Haruffa. But after only a few short weeks, it becomes apparent that he is quite ill. Desperately petitioning the supernatural Aspects of Life, Death, and Time, the child’s parents beg for help at any price. Their cries for mercy are duly heard and answered.
The timing of Haruffa’s birth is, in fact, no accident: he is to be appointed and equipped to overcome the greatest threat to life upon the planet—the evil necromancer, Bruab, and his growing undead army.Praise For Haruffa Tales: Five star review from Foreward Reviews “With the next installment of Haruffa Tales, Specter Past, already on its way, now is the time to enter Haruffa’s world. For fantasy devotees or graphic-novel lovers looking for something a little different, Hautala and Trout’s collaboration is not to be missed.” -Pallas Gates McCorquodale

In the midst of their planning, a ransom demand was delivered by private courier. It stated, You are to come two hours before dawn to the enclosed address. You are to come alone; if you surrender the cloak, Killian will be allowed to go free. If you do not show up, or if a rescue is attempted, he will be immediately killed. Haruffa wasn’t stupid enough to believe that either one of them would be permitted to leave once he surrendered the cloak; The Brotherhood undoubtedly hoped to capture them both and deliver them to their infernal master.
