Hidden Lands

15 September, 2020

“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 leaves above his head rustled faintly, although no breeze touched Lored’s cheek.

Tearing his eyes from the bark, the taku-kevir stared up at the rippling pattern of yellow light and green shadow. Each leaf had a serrated edge and pale veins branched in pairs from the centre. Although the sun did not appear to be shining, golden light glowed above the leaves, illuminating Lored’s face. He kept his head bent back, drinking in the other-light as if it was Power itself. The leaves flickered, shivered and fell still. The shadows ceased shifting and it was as if Lored stared into a bowl of sunshine.

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. No breeze and the leaves around him still moved. He had forgotten that the trees were more alive here in Zorat, that the whole forest responded to the will and command of the Zoratti …

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.
