The spirit of a murdered princess is in need of noble warriors to free the cursed soul of her father. An ancient sorcerer seeks aid in stopping his son who is determined to exterminate all sentient life. What they find is Nathaniel and Sebastian, a pair of con artists and thieves, that wants nothing to do with acts of heroism.
Did destiny make a mistake in choosing these two?
Probably, but it’s too late now.
Music often inspires scenes, helps mold the tone of a narrative, and in some cases, defines a character.
What follows is a collection of songs that are the soundtrack to this novel.
References to shadows and monsters, a feeling of terror creeping up on unsuspecting victims is perfect for the horror elements of the novel. The opening will include images of the world, a horrific reality that is a land decaying due to the damage done to life throughout the four realms, both human and animal alike.
The lyrics create a visceral image in the mind that draws in the audience to think about a mortal body and an immortal soul. This combination of setting the mood and establishing a feeling of intense horror is ideal for Age of Shadows. This creates a foreboding feeling for the journey through this world.
The song would be used for the closing credits of the first movie, which shows that the journey continues onto its sequel. There is a higher level of energy than what would be an ominous, darker tone to the rest of the soundtrack for Eclipse of the Sun. However, the lyrics are linked to the darker elements of life and death.
Eclipse of the Sun : The Movie
Sebastian is the last surviving member of a family of farmers that came to the City of Light when he was a baby. Over the years, his family meet gruesome deaths. He befriends another orphan named Nathaniel, learning to survive. The pair grow up to be con-artists, thieves, and tricksters that live by a noble code.
Nathaniel is a blending of a hero and comedy relief which describes the strengths of this actor. He can be a noble character at heart, wanting to do the right thing, but hesitating to sacrifice himself to do so. He would be able to portray a character that is not a coward, but that voice of reason to the absurdity of such decisions.
Alicia will be able to both a strict action hero one moment and a warm, charming friend in the next scene. This combination of savior to two often inept companions while being a close friend for them to connect to as a trio, allows this actress to bring the two sides of the character's persona together in an ideal way.
He has a presence to him that would bring Ferot to life without being aggressive about it. The character is a dominating force without needing to prove it. He would be able to create this sense of power ideal for a character. He could embody a wolf in human form, not the typical werewolf which is a human taking wolf form.
He has the ability to be prim, proper, and aloof while being charming while doing so. He will be able to make Dargom a lovable character that the audience will enjoy watching while still being this emotionally reserved, matter of fact, kind of individual. It would be difficult for most actors to find that balance, but not for Ben.
Vurian is a combination of the painful suffering of his past, the glimmer of hope in a bleak situation, and a commanding presence guiding three unlikely heroes towards a goal they want nothing to do with. The wide variety of talents of this actor would add such richness to the character on a deeply emotional level.

In the opening of the book, Nathaniel and Sebastian are about to be hung for the crime of attempted theft. Many of those who are attending are being forced to do so, a way to instill fear into the local community. Among them, at the front of the gathered crowd is the author. He is dressed in rags, blending in with a group that is covered in dirt and grime. Like most of the average citizens of the City of Light, he will appear defeated, sad, an unwilling participant of hte event.
