To be thrown in such a tumultuous world in tumultuous times was the fate of the Esper-bearer. It was, at this time, the weight the Blackwood family had to carry. Bastard of a peasant girl and one of the princelings of Aventyne, Vyncent Blackwood, set off from his homeland to rid himself of this curse.
Across the sea, rumors tell of an exorciser as old as the dirt the first men have tread. Once he meets him, Vyncent hopes his family's blood to be cleansed of the essence of Espers, but with it, the extinction of all magic from this realm.
Note on Chronology
Blackwood is told through the point-of-view of characters who may or may not be miles apart from each other. Chapters may cover a day, a few hours, or even several months; a day covered in one chapter may be within a week of a preceding chapter. Things may have also simultaneously occurred between multiple chapters. Because of this, the narrative is not sequential for the most part.Map of the Known World
