Fiction Works by Charles Moffat

Portrait of Wrathgar. Illustrated by Edgar.

Charles Moffat is a Canadian writer who writes both fiction and non-fiction. He has been writing and publishing fictional works since the age of ten. His early works were primarily were short stories about pirate adventures which were published on a weekly basis in a local newspaper.

As Moffat got older he began writing more fantasy works, often delving into plots involving espionage and assassins. In recent years he has become a fan of Robert E. Howard (the creator of Conan the Barbarian) and become interested in traditional sword and sorcery fantasy.

His writing style is sometimes action-packed and incorporates fight choreography, martial arts, and detailed (often metaphorical) plots. His earliest major work (The Crimson Companions Trilogy, 1995-1996) is a series of three novels which focuses heavily on firearms, a technological/magical arms race and espionage/sabotage and assassinations, focusing on metaphors for the real world's thirst for armaments.

In Winter 1999 Moffat created the fictional fantasy kingdom known as Korovia. Since then he has worked on many different projects set in the fictional world, including his series of heroic fantasy novels "The Adventures of Wrathgar", his dark fantasy short stories for "The Lilith Bloodstone Series", and his Sword & Sorcery series "Wulfric the Wanderer". He has also written a variety of myths and fables set in the fictional location. Moffat continues to write both short stories and novels set in the fictional kingdom of Korovia, with plans to introduce many more characters and books between 2020 and 2025.

Fantasy authors whom Moffat enjoys include (in alphabetical order by last name): Marion Zimmer Bradley, Terry Brooks, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Lewis Carroll, Elaine Cunningham, L. Sprague de Camp, Troy Denning, Dave Duncan, David Eddings, Terry Goodkind, Jeff Grubb, Tracy Hickman, Robert E. Howard, Robert Jordan, Guy Gavriel Kay, Stephen King, Richard A. Knaak, Mercedes Lackey, C.S. Lewis, H. P. Lovecraft, George R. R. Martin, Kate Novak, Terry Pratchett, J. K. Rowling, R.A. Salvatore, J. R. R. Tolkien, Margaret Weis and Tad Williams.

The Blizzard's Daughter

Released March 1st 2020.

Paperback 162 pages / eBook 122 pages.

'Blizzards' are wizards who specialize in ice magic (cryomancy) and have undergone a transformation that turns their skin blue. They become immune to the cold, but vulnerable to fire, and their cryomancy magic is enhanced dramatically. They are also very rare as only the toughest wizards can survive the magical transformation without dying...

The hunter and tracker Wrathgar knows little of wizards and their ways, but when an elderly Blizzard approaches him and asks him to track down his missing daughter and bring her home he agrees to the task knowing little of what lies ahead. What he doesn't know is that there is a prophecy about "a child of a Blizzard" and people seeking to stop the prophecy from happening have set their sights on the Blizzard's Daughter. If they can kill her maybe they can stop the prophecy from happening.

Released December 1st 2019.

Paperback 297 pages / eBook 299 pages.

The sleepy farming village of Millkrest has been attacked and their virgin priestess has been abducted, presumably to be sacrificed to the foul god Masexus at a shrine deep in the woods east of the village. The barbarian Wrathgar teams up with the wizard Soljargon, the half-elf priestess Helene, the skilled elf archer Gyburn, and the halfling sneak-thief Kaeto in order to rescue her. If sacrificed her life-force will be used to summon a demon prince...

But they are heavily outnumbered and teamwork is not their strong suit, and Wrathgar has been forced into a leadership role when he has no experience in leading others. Worse, Gyburn and Kaeto keep arguing, and Kaeto keeps getting into trouble. What will Wrathgar have to do to forge the group into a team? What will it take to rescue the priestess and prevent the demon prince from being summoned? What sacrifices will have to be made in order to defeat the evil brewing deep in the woods?

Coming March 1st 2021. Preorder the ebook using the link below.

Wrathgar has decided to wait out the harsh Korovian winter in an inn south of Oraknev, home to legendary hot springs said to have healing properties. But not everything at the hot springs are as they seem. First the hostess is mysteriously murdered, and then others turn up mauled by some kind of large wolf. Dark forces are at work at the hot springs and the other people staying at the inn to wait out the winter are in for more danger than they bargained for at a place that is supposed to increase your longevity.

With bow and arrow, Wrathgar and others set out to kill the mysterious wolf that is killing the inn's patrons, but when they realize there is more than one wolf - and that these wolves are possessed by some kind of magic - they begin to fear they are but lambs to the slaughter.
