The Kaerling by Freya Pickard is a series of linked novellas tracing an epic fantasy tale in the mysterious world of Nirunen.

What starts as an innocent quest to follow the unicorn’s trail, turns into a sinister nightmare.

The first three volumes, Silver Fire, Ambassador and An Ancient Song, tell of the journey of Otta and Erl as they seek to follow the legendary unicorn’s trail.

“I was so happy to find a book that truly captivated my imagination from beginning to end.” K Johnston

Whilst Tari comes to terms with sudden changes and violent death in the Temple in Aura Vere, Lored seeks to find a new purpose in life.

Volumes 4 – 6, (Olin Heon, Hidden Lands and Aura Vere) introduce two new main characters; Lored, a taku-kevir, and Tari, an acolyte. The sixth volume, Aura Vere, brings together the 4 main storylines making way for this series to continue…

“Freya’s ability to craft complex characters and create an interwoven storyline shows well in this volume!” Troy

Uneasy Allies follows the five companions as they pursue the kaerlings through the remote countryside of Falnaboldu. Their mission is simple – to rescue Lally and Derri from the evil kaerlings. But catching up with the kaerlings proves to be anything but simple, and the five companions discover that they can’t completely trust each other.

“The action was pacy and compelling.” J Poulter

Once round the corner, her cottage lost to sight, the green downs revealed the armoured men clearly. They marched two abreast, their chainmail jingling with each step. She smiled to herself; was she really that dangerous?

At the head of the column marched an older man, white-haired, amber-eyed, still sinewy and strong, though his youth was long gone. He raised his right arm when he saw Rue and the column came to a neat halt. He waited until she stopped before him.

“Rue Borrulacht, in the name of the Prince Consort, Danartha Fuar, I, Sean Regan, arrest you on suspicion of murder.” There was regret in his unusual coloured eyes as he placed his hand on her shoulder. “You will accompany us to the Cathair where you will await his Highness’ pleasure.”

Rue did not let her fear show; his Highness would get no pleasure out of her.

In a couple of weeks time I’ll be launching the next novella in The Kaerling series. It will be priced at £0.99 for a few weeks to celebrate the launch!

You don’t need to have read the previous 6 volumes, but it will help if you know a bit about the background of the main characters.

And, if you prefer to read in paperback, Uneasy Allies will be available by the end of 2022 as part of Water Sister.
