A devastating plague is sweeping the continent of Greater Virren…
Its origin is unknown, its dominance of the land near complete. In times of grim desperation, pestilence has given way to superstition, and the citizenry are now more divided than ever.
Yet the city of Rothenberg remains inexplicably untouched…
The Council has grown convinced of their immunity, even as their neighbours are consumed before them. As the world teeters on the brink of collapse, a zealous religious order has re-emerged. They claim to have discovered the source of the plague… but can they be trusted?
The plague will never reach Rothenberg…
Katarina Lorenz, a noble of the city and veteran of the civil war that shook the continent, remains unconvinced. She conspires to leave the city with her companion Tannhauser, to find out what’s really going on beyond its walls.
THE RITUAL is the first in a trilogy of gripping high-fantasy novelettes. The debut possesses all the beloved hallmarks fans of the genre will recognise, but is distinguished by its gritty atmosphere and confrontation with some of the most unsettling chapters of human history.

About the Author
Mitchell Luthi is an epic fantasy author based in Cape Town, South Africa. After completing his studies in history and law, Mitchell turned to the fulfillment of more personal pursuits, including entrepreneurship and recreational writing. More recently, the latter has been undertaken in earnest, with the hope of releasing a great many literary works.
Mitchell is an avid board game and tabletop player, and, when not devouring the whole gamut of fictional works–from historical fiction to fantasy–spends much of his free time composing scores.
His debut novelette, "The Ritual," was born from a fascination with the darker chapters of human history, as well as an abiding love for gripping, character-driven fantasy.
