Hidden Lands

“Beautifully written and it held my attention from start to finish.” E Baxter

Grey, crumpled bark, like ossified wrinkles spiralled around the trunk and up into the branches. It was not a tree he was familiar with but he stared at it, seeing the silver lichen that grew in tiny clusters on each rise of bark, leaving the dips in the tree’s skin dark and shadowed.

The pack pony snorted nervously, breaking the spell. Lored stared around, wondering why he had stopped. He felt a shiver of recognition slip down his spine.

This is a short extract from Hidden Lands, Volume Five of The Kaerling! This is one of the hidden lands that Lored, the taku-kevir from Olin Heon re-discovers during the course of the tale.
