Common threads have always woven through the world's mythology and folklore, strings which seem to link cultures divided by the vastness of oceans and time.
Have you ever wondered why? What if I told you that they all stem from a single origin.....the Varth-lokkr. Within this ancient creature's blood, stirs the power to save or enslave the world as we know it, a power ignited by a simple word. But which does it truly desire?
This dark urban fantasy follows one of these creatures through its emergence into 21st century Australia. It chronicles the rise of those who oppose it, those who ally themselves with it and those who are unwillingly drawn into its wake.
Shed the blood. Speak the words. Change the world.

M.C. Edwards, or Eddie as he is known to his mates, grew up in a coastal town on the picturesque Central Queensland coast of Australia. He has travelled to many corners of the world and has a love of all things bizarre. He enjoys motorcycles, beards, comics, videogames and the taste of a fine single malt scotch. In his writing he crafts immersive worlds which mix reality and fantasy to create a strangely believable mix.

What is your favorite part of Blue Words?
I would have to say that my favourite part of the story is when Gudrik and the Inscribed are frantically weaving their way through pitch black mining tunnels. The way that the tension and excitement bubble together is exactly the thing which keeps me turning pages.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Crave, definitely Crave. His shared hallucinations could make a long period of isolation much more interesting. If I was going to starve to death, I may as well go out having fun.
If you could be best friends with one of your characters, who would it be?
Probably Gudrik. I am fascinated by ancient history, who better to be mates with than a man who was able to tell me all about it, as someone who had lived and influenced it all.
What books have most influenced your life?
This is a really hard question to answer, because I think that every author is influenced by everything they read. So, I will go with the earliest book that really affected me, The Hobbit. It was the first book I read cover to cover by choice, and it was also the first book I ever really became obsessed with.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
I drink a lot of scotch and see what stupid ideas roll out of my head. The next day when I go through them, some actually make sense or at least inspire more eloquent and coherent ideas.
What book are you reading now?
I am deep into The Count of Monte Cristo and The Gathering Storm at the moment. Though, I don’t really get that much time to read…well not as much as I would like. I am also reading Maze Runner to my class at school.
