Crimson & Cream recounts an unlucky orphan boy’s adventurous tale of flight and discovery as he unravels his tortured past while securing his tenuous future.  Hounded by watchmen, trolls, goblins, and a relentless bounty hunter, Jetsam begins running for his life, and dreams of a day when the deadly race will end.
In the magnificent mountain city of Dwim-Halloe, Eadriel and Elvar were born identical twin brothers to teachers at the city’s revered School of Magic.  In Dwim-Halloe, a new king declared magic evil, and outlawed its practice.  This decree spawned a revolt by the resident spellcasters, which led to a bloody rebellion.  With brutal force, the new ruler crushed the uprising.  The twins parents’ murder forfeited the boys’ birthright to learn the art of magic, and sent them fleeing for their lives.
*
Rescued by an orphan gang, the twins were nicknamed Flotsam and Jetsam.  The clan introduced them to their underbelly lair, where they live in hiding.  To survive, the fugitive urchins sneak up to town nightly to scavenge and pilfer.
(
During their last risky foray, a castle sentry spotted the youthful intruders and the brothers fled into an unfamiliar cavern.  Lost deep underground, they encountered a strange beast that changed their lives forever and started a harrowing journey for survival.

What they’re saying about it:
*
“What a great adventure! I really enjoyed reading this book. Poor Jetsam had to do a lot of running from great enemies and creatures. You did a great job on the dialogue both making it sound natural as well as appropriate for each social class. This is a challenge for many authors, so kudos to you. You also had beautiful descriptions and story twists. We look forward to reading more of your work in the future.” — Grub Street Reads
