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

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.

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

Little Gem

Checked out my Facebook profile a few days and found myself mentioned in a post by author Chris R. Sendrowski!

You can read it here, or, if you don’t have an FB profile, read on below for the details.

Lately I’ve been having a hard time reading indie fantasy novels. A lot of them are just way too tied down to annoying tropes and piss-poor writing. However, I came across this little gem after the author befriended me online. Needless to say, this is some solid writing here. Freya has a real voice and deserves to have her work read. This is the first author I’ve come across in the indie fantasy world that really has a voice. Make sure to check out her work on Amazon. You won’t regret it!

Thank you, Chris! It’s always a huge boost to an author’s esteem when people leave comments like this online. Chris’ writing is visceral and dynamic which I thoroughly enjoy reading. Which writer will you encourage today?

Don’t forget that The Rusalka Ritual is just 99c until 21st July – get it now before it’s too late!
