Hey all, hope you’re having a fun summer. I’ve finally finished the first draft of the sequel to “The Conquest of Night”, which I have decided to  call “The Citadel of Night.” Thank you for your feedback on my Facebook page, every vote helped influence my decision. Wow, I am extremely excited to share with you Jackson’s latest adventures. In The Citadel of Night, I bring back all of the lovable characters from the first book (including Nidle, of course) but also introduce some new personalities, which I’m proud to say are bizarre in opposite extremes. Some new characters include Borris the mountain lord, Dimitri the rogue Ssalendris, and Billadee Bobba. However, my favourite character to write for in the second book was definitely Keldarich. That man knows just how to keep everyone on their toes!

This is a sneak-peek the first draft synopsis for the second book in the Chronicles of Night series. Enjoy!

The Citadel Justin JamesThe war rages on…

The Eternai have driven the Night from their lands after a costly battle in Verden. From his liberated throne, King Talon ordered the Eternai war machine onto their new target; the shadowy and mysterious realm of Night.
16 year old Jackson Taeric is assigned to Falcon’s small expedition force, given the mission of carving a path to the Citadel while crippling the receding Night’s defenses.

In an impossible attempt to explore an uncharted country, Jackson battles alongside the Eternai through sunken caves, frozen mountains, and an enchanted forest…but his loyalty to the Eternai is called into question when he receives a letter inviting him to join the Night, written by the Mistress herself.

Jackson discovers his forgotten past in this world and is forced to reconsider his allegiance. Foreign allies bring new light onto the battle, and former friends reveal their true colours. As the Eternai close in on the Citadel, Jackson must decide; should he continue bearing the Eternai banner, or should he kill their king?
