About the Book (Excerpts & Info):
The blood of Danathyl had crawled from the White Wyvern's tomb, out over the ice and into the creek to the Lake of Danat-Lanne. The precious blood mingled with the icy water and explored the world beneath its glossy ceiling. Bodies of men and Cordontis and Mangendors floated beneath the surface in a lifeless trance, trapped beneath the icy roof. There they stared out through the dark depths of the water that would forever be their frigid mausoleum. Danathyl's blood would not revive them amidst such a great amount of water to dilute its healing power. The fallen in the lake were gone forever.
Closer to the cave, where the blood rode the creek's current out to the lake, it ran thick. Beneath its surface floated the two SangreLin flasks that had eluded Dirlan's grasp. Emptied of their contents, they now filled with the cold water and sank into the depths. The healing power of Danathyl swam through the creek with the slow moving current and happened upon something to call home. A dark figure hung in the murky depths, as if frozen in flight. A key dangled from a chain hung precariously around a lifeless neck.
Past blackened fingers, beneath charred armor, through tattered cloak, and among singed, whitened hair, the blood swam. It found its way in the darkness over scorched skin and into a mouth, past an agony-ridden grimace, and into lungs and stomach. Its healing massaged a cooled, still heart and travelled through dormant vessels and arteries, igniting nerves with feeling and synapses with a message, relayed with relentless speed to the brain.
I'm still alive, Pestileras thought. His glazed eyes opened, and his fists clenched, trying to wring the cold from within his flesh. He squinted upward and saw the pale sky, hindered by a glassy surface that undulated and spun. Time to breathe once again, he thought. That was when he realized he was underwater. (Chapter 28)

About the Author: Mattius C. S. White started writing in high school, doing pass-along stories with his friends for fun. This gave him a love for the written word, and by college, Mattius decided to see if he could write a 100-150 page adventure story, just for the challenge of doing it. Inspired by The Lord of the Rings, the Star Wars movies, The Discworld series, Final Fantasy video games, etc. he set out to complete this and ended up creating a 312,000 word and 700+ page book, which has been split into two works (The Leaves of Dusk, and The Leaves of Dusk). Mattius is continually striving to challenge myself to write stories outside the mainstream seen today, yet he holds true to the works that have inspired him from the beginning. He love to create characters and worlds outside of our own, and until he feels he has nothing left to say, he will continue to relish the joy he get from this art.
Mattius is currently working on a sequel that takes place approximately 20 years after the first two books.
