About the Story

Asher is a short visual story about a librarian—all right, librarian’s assistant—named Tetrine Reish who lives in the city-state of Asher. Things are going swimmingly (except for perhaps her brother’s debt/bootlegging problem and an ominous dream or two,) until a woman comes along asking for a book. Not a library book—that would be too easy—but a book that doesn’t belong in Tetrine’s library. The book turns out to be written in a magical script called Nell marks that only a few people can see, and Tetrine is one of them.

However, all her life she’s been told in no uncertain terms that letting on that she can see the marks is a Bad Idea. Which is unfortunate, because several people, two of whom have suspicious intentions, find out. A kidnapping and an attempted murder (or two) ensues, and Tetrine’s life will never quite be the same again.

Asher - Oozes Stlye, March 23, 2018
The story description is there for all to see, but this isn't that "short" a story, and it's clear lot of effort has gone into it. One of the more standout features is the art work, it's exceptionally well done.

The amount of text isn't overpowering. Admittedly there are a few moments where it's a case of "click to continue" but there's enough in the story where you actually do want to click to continue.

If you enjoyed Asher...
