It is challenging to create a believable bad guy.
Somehow, his or her back story must make sense. Somehow, there must be a possibility for a scoundrel to turn around. Somehow, as readers we need to see something of ourselves in a really great villain.
Zorasch is the central antagonist in The Dragon’s Bones saga. Called the Conqueror by those who follow and fear him, he has subjugated cities and towns with ruthless efficiency.
So, why and how did Zorasch become the Conqueror? Wielding the Words: The Dragon’s Bones Book One and Battling the Bones: The Dragon’s Bones Book Two tell you how.
But what about his future? I’m still figuring that out as I work on the final chapters of Conquering the Curse: The Dragon’s Bones Book Three. As a complimentary reviewer just wrote, “Unfortunately, Volume III is not out yet.”
We’ll both have to wait to see what happens.
