#ThursdayDoors — Dead of Winter, Lucetius

Thursday, June 30, 2022 
As you know, the novelettes of “Dead of Winter” reached the conclusion with Journey 14, The Veil.  Forgive my shameless self-promotion, since I didn’t have a book launch.  I’m sharing a little of that world in a Thursday Doors post, by featuring one of the characters.
Thursday Doors, a weekly feature hosted by Dan Antion.  It allows door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link at Dan’s blog.

Dead of Winter Doors — Lucetius

Lucetius is a supernatural character.  Throughout much of the story he is “fractured,” unstable.  He is able to transform into a variety of creatures.  He was born with the ability to traverse the Realm of the Dead in a much more advanced way than Emlyn’s abilities allow. (Although, she’s just getting started.)

For a thousand years, Lucetius had mourned his lost lover, Tesni.  Even in death she wasn’t safe from Arawn.

So, within the ghostly realm, he created a room inside a palace, where Tesni could be safe from the nightwalker.

There is much more about Lucetius in the books.  Learn what his future holds in the final Journey.  Thanks for taking this tour of “Dead of Winter” doors with me.  The final Journey is now available.

  1. Thank you for the video, it brings everything quickly to mind! I enjoyed all the details, it brought everything close together. By the way, I could “ramble on” but suffice it to say, your story and your talent are beyond question! I like the white dog that appears occasionally!

  2. Fabulous post, Teagan!
    Great images, and a tasty slice of story to go with them.
    I’ve been having browser issues for 5 days, and have finally switched from Firefox to Chrome.
    I’m a bit behind with blogging because of that. I’m in Art Gowns right now. I’ll log out and into GLAM tomorrow, from where I will reblog your finishing of “Dead of Winter”. {{hugs}}}

  3. This is a great way to combine your wonderful series and Thursday Doors. Your images bring the story closer to life in my mind, although your descriptions in the Journeys do a very good job of that. Lucetius isn’t my favorite character, but he’s a good one to feature. I enjoyed Dead of Winter very much, and I’m glad your keeping the conversation alive.

    1. Thanks very much, Dan. Although the first image feels right for the building, I see Luce as… well, just not muscular. I admit the others are not as I imagine Tesni’s room in the story, but free images have limits, LOL. I appreciate your encouragement about this post. Thanks for spending time here today. Hugs on the wing.

  4. He was a fascinating character, Teagan. His and Tesni’s story could have been a book all by themselves. Well done. Great images and perfect for a door post. Promote away, my friend. After all that work, it’s well deserved. 🙂

    1. Thank you kindly, Diana. I’m delighted you like Luce. Although I’m no good with romance, especially the tragic kind. So hinting about it as backstory is about as much as I do. Zasha and Tajin might get their origin novelette someday, but that one is more adventure than romance.
      Wishing you a relaxing weekend ahead. Big hugs.
