By Jarry, Istin & Brants 


When poetry and violence
revive the old legends …
When the sound of steel
on grinding stones
hacks the old fortresses…
Then the time of Gods and Heroes is approaching…


Nicolas Jarry

His passion for writing is for the first time reflected in “the Chronicles of a war: Sînamm”, a fantasy-cycle of publishing Mnémos.
