“What’s amazing about this book is that it is its own story. It’s not some spin off, take off, bull$#!% twisting of the same young adult themes. And I love that you get all these stories within stories... It’s like, bookception.” 
-- RattleTheStars.com

Silver, they call it, the light of the full moon: celestial magic that changes men into beasts and calls the dead from their graves—and young men to their destiny...

When his village is attacked by creatures from Blood Marsh, Billy Cole volunteers to find help. But it’ll take more than a sword and the inspiring tales of his legendary idols to survive the harsh world beyond Redfield. Taking the name Wil Thunderstrike, he sets off to save his home and begin his own heroic legacy.

On Fate’s fickle course, however, sixteen-springs-old Wil Thunderstrike will become a storyteller, adventurer, and thief; discover romance, danger, and betrayal; and return home both a hero and a villain.

Need a break from elves, dwarves, and messianic orphans? Prefer your heroes flawed rather than invulnerable? Complex over stereotyped? Evolving, not revolving? If you like Glen Cook's working-class fantasy and George R. R. Martin's realistic motivations, you'll enjoy the rich world, deep characters, and mature themes of Tarnish.

Tarnish Reviews

The world Brink has created is rich and detailed, well drawn with enough backstory to give the setting depth, but not so much as to be overwhelming. I was impressed with the world, and I’d like to see more of it. - Michael Gallant

Loved it! I believe it is open for a sequel and if so I'm looking forward to it. - MC Spats

If you enjoy fantasy literature, and you are looking for something new and a bit different, then I would highly suggest picking up Tarnish. - Avidreader75

Meet J. D. Brink

J. D. Brink was not a private detective in the 1940s, but he'd liked to have been. Instead he was born in the 1970s, was a kid at the best time ever to be a kid (the '80s), and went to college in the '90s. Since then he's become a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher. His written work has appeared online on Pseudopod.org and Ascent Aspirations, and in Tales of the Talisman and Cemetery Moon magazines. In 2012, his SF novelette The Thorne Legacy was a quarter finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest. Today (spring, 2014) he and his family live in Texas, where there aren't enough cheating husbands, missing persons, practicing witches, or hard-boiled mysteries to keep him occupied. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
