Nulled Ones in the Spellster Series
            — A brief dissertation by Madam Hedgewitch Katarina of Dvärghem.
 
Hounds, Ghosts, Priests of the Great Judger… these are but some of the titles given to those known universally as the Nulled Ones. They are beings—humans and elves, man and woman alike— incapable of being affected by magic, never mind whether it is malicious or beneficial.
The world holds the common belief that only another spellster can be born of those who have the gift of magic. However, unknown to many, is the origin of the Nulled Ones. They are, in fact, a curious, and often unwanted, by-product of spellster breeding.
The deciding factor of who is born with magic and who isn't has no logical pattern. A magic-rich noble family in Udynea is just as likely to birth such an anomaly as an unfortunate spellster in Obuzan. All that seems to change is the manner in which these beings are treated

Spellsters in the Spellster Series
            — A brief dissertation by Madam Hedgewitch Katarina of Dvärghem.
 
For centuries, the presence of spellsters has long since been a tumultuous one, with the trend of those wielding magic and political power going back as far as the ancient, and long gone, Domian Empire.
Whilst the origin of such abilities is a hotly contested topic, it is widely accepted that they are passed on through bloodlines. In fact, a lot of countries have a phrase that amounts to the same thing: spellsters breed spellsters. However, despite the similarities, treatment of their magic-wielding citizens can vary wildly from country to country…
Demarn — The kingdom contains their spellsters in a single tower complex. They are either born within the walls or escorted there by the King's Hounds. Outside of the tower walls, the people are generally fearful of magic and those who wield i

What a performance. Daylen rubbed the back of his neck as he pushed open the door to the library of Vigil's Keep. The shelves may not boast the biggest collection of texts, but the smell of old parchment and leather was a soothingly familiar smell. Right now, he needed that more than the comforts of a bed.
Ever since the darkspawn threat had died down to a manageable level, since Morrigan gave him that tantalising lead towards reversing the effects of the Blight, he'd tried so hard to extract himself from the politics. He always seemed to be fixing everyone's problems but his own. True, some of them needed to be done before they blew out of proportion, but keeping the nobles from each other's throats ought to be easier th

Elves of the Spellster Series
            — A brief dissertation by Madam Hedgewitch Katarina of Dvärghem.
 
Little is known of the land from which elves originated, even the natives of Heimat, people who are far removed from the Udynea Empire and their toxic environment, and those who still live according to the nomadic practice of their wandering forebears have fragments of their past. Beyond these clans, there is little concern expressed with this cultural gap in their heritage. This disinterest is almost unanimous, but admitted only if pressed.
Much of the tangible facts can be found in the Udynea Empire and their old slave records. These state that the elves arrived en masse in vast ships—vessels that, reputedly, carried several thousand each and were sadly dismantled on site for their wood—on the shores of what is now Obuzan. Of course, this was some centuries back, when the current empire was bu

It Began with a Letter
Title: It Began with a Letter
Author: Aldrea Alien
Game: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Characters/pairing: Maxwell Trevelyan & Dorian Pavus

"Here I thought we were just getting to the good part."
Maxwell watched Dorian leave, unable to take his eyes off the mage until he had no choice as the man disappeared behind a bookshelf. What am I doing? He shook his head. The answer there was simple. Fawning. Like some foolish adolescent who'd only just figured out what to do with men. That was precisely what he was doing.
And, somehow, he always found himself back here, listening to the man talk. Discussing anything from the differences of the Imperial Chantry to the one he'd grown up with, to rather heated debates on slavery, and even touching on Dorian's family. It was all so different to how he'd lived before becoming a brother at the Ostwick C

IN PAIN AND BLOOD

The second Sunday of every month is when there'll be tales of budding m/m erotic romance, deceit, betrayal and death.

But the first Sunday is even better because you get it first here: www.patreon.com/aldreaalien, plus all the juicy 18+ details that I won't be posting anywhere else.

In Pain and Blood is a story that follows Dylan, a spellster very much out of his depth, as he faces a chain of disastrous and treacherous events that forces him to survive in a world that might as well be foreign to him to find safety, and perhaps love, in the most unlikely of places...




Published eBooks:
Dark One's Mistress, a gothic romance inspired by a game and with a tinge of Beauty and the Beast.
The Rogue King, the Science Fantasy that spans thirty years in one man's life (and took control of mine) as he deals with divine possession and redemption.
Golden Dawn, a paranormal romance revolving around one demonic creature and a crystal containing some imprisoned sunlight.


Free Stories:
The Shadow Prince, sequel to The Rogue King.


And, of course, the various fan fictions kicking around my profile.

So the second Sunday of every month is when there'll be tales of budding m/m erotic romance, deceit, betrayal and death. Otherwise known as when a chapter of In Pain and Blood will appear on DeviantArt.

But the first Sunday is even better because that's when those who sign up for my Patreon get those chapters first. Yes, a whole week in advance. Plus all the 18+ chapters that I won't be posting anywhere else (that's at least 8 out a projected 37 chapters). Evil I know, but I'm a little uncomfortable with placing them on my blog with nothing but a one-sentence warning.

If you're unsure what In Pain and Blood is... it's a story that follows Dylan, a spellster very much out of his depth, as he faces a chain of disastrous and treacherous events that forces him to survive in a world that might as well be foreign to him to find safety, and perhaps love, in the most unlikely of places.


To get you started, chapter one is already up...
