hopelessly loves
dislikes his twin, wants to
trust the others but fears power;

wide sky
leaking dampness
over these rounded hills
no leaf or branch to ward off rain
surges, bars the way, flooding high
driftwood floats in current
below dark leaves
of cress

Uneasy Allies – it’s here!

15 September, 2021

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.


Above is a short extract from my latest book, Uneasy Allies. It’s on special offer until 24th September 2021 – it’s only 99p / 99c!

Uneasy Allies is available at Amazon US, Amazon UK, and all other countries. It’s also available at many other Online Stores, including Kobo, Nook, Apple!

Uneasy Allies is the seventh book in The Kaerling series and tells of five companions whose mission is simple – to rescue the child Derri and the acolyte Lally from the clutches of the kaerlings. But their mission proves to be anything be simple…

I so enjoyed the latest instalment of The Kaerling. The action was pacy and compelling. The characters had really settled into themselves and were well-rounded. I read it all in one sitting and was totally engrossed! Jenny Poulter
