The first volume in the epic fantasy series Soulwoven.
    Litnig Jin has spent his life yearning for the power to weave the souls of the dead into magic. His brother Cole has spent his believing in nothing bigger than his own two hands.
    When a dragon sinks its claws into their nightmares, both of their lives will change forever.
    A dream of moving statues, shattered chains, and seething clouds of darkness sets the brothers on a journey into the unknown. A prince asks for their help. A necromancer hunts them. The bloom of first love gives Cole something to believe in.
    And as the brothers travel the world of Guedin seeking to prevent the hatred of a god from coming to life, Litnig learns that there are prices to pay for all power, and that the power he seeks may cost him more than he can possibly imagine.
    Soulwoven is a story of high fantasy, high adventure, and high soul searching in eight points of view, written with people between the ages of 15 and 30 in mind. 
    I love it, and I hope you will too.
    Edit: An updated version of Soulwoven is available commercially. Help me write more and buy a copy! The print book will look great on your shelf, I promise. :-)

absolutely loooove the way everything is written omg i cant believe i just found this book
What's Mekong me tear up is this and me listening to Bandcamp's "To This Day" video.
I think in a rural town or city. Maybe in the past, during some war when food and money can be tight if your not in the right business.
Great beginning, I'm intrigued by these Aleani characters. I particularly like the contrast between the two leads, adds some depth.
I don't think I left a comment on this when I read it,  and now I feel really bad,  because it was such a great book. I couldn't put it down, and I especially appreciated the accompanying videos. Thanks for such an awesome book!
