Free Adventure Novel is free

Free as in speech, and free as in beer.  Perfidy has another chapter up in his novel about Marines and Magic, The Veil Wars:
Jerome finished assembling his mojo. He lifted his arms, and the arms of his green robes slipped down to his shoulders. Between his hands a small spark hovered. It looked like the business end of an arc welder and Lewis squinted at the brightness. The Hierodeacon made a fist of his right hand, and wound up like he was on a pitcher’s mound. The spark drifted lazily back over his shoulder like it was on a bungee cord. He made as if to throw, and the spark throbbed brighter, pulsing.
Jerome threw. The spark shot up, arcing skyward and growing as it rose. It exploded, silently.
“What the fuck was that?” asked an Army private.
“Sir, what’s going on?”
Van Buskirk shouted, “Belay that shit. Let the wizard deal with the magic shit. You worry about shooting at what I tell you to shoot at.”
The latest chapter is here, you can start at the beginning here.  If you like it, leave him a comment there.

Not too bad. Caught up to the current chapter around 12:30. Disappointed to have it hanging unresolved, but now it's like a serial. WILL THE MARINES KILL THE ORCS? HOW DOES MAGIC WORK? TUNE IN NEXT WEEK FOR THE NEXT EXCITING EPISODE!
