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

Fire Daughter – it’s here!

15 May, 2021

Other figures issued from the western exit bearing torches. Lored caught sight of a green robe and his heart beat faster with expectation. Surely that was Antti the Kansler come to tell him the klanchiefs’ agreement.

As he hurried back down the path, the sun disappeared and darkness swooped across the island. With a murmured word, Lored caused a faint light to glow from the carved merlin’s head at the top of his staff. He drew near the main roadway and wondered why the Kansler had brought so many soldiers with him. He smiled in welcome at his friend. Antti did not smile back and unease stirred in Lored’s stomach.

“You have news for me?” Lored came to a halt before the Kansler and the soldiers.

There was genuine regret in Antti’s heavy-browed eyes. “I am placing you under arrest, Lored, taku-kevir of Falnaboldu. Until further notice, you will remain in the holding cells.”

The Kansler gestured with one large gnarled hand and the soldier nearest to Lored seized him by the shoulders. The man was so taken aback that speech failed him and another soldier snatched the staff from his hands. The glowing light from the merlin’s head vanished at once and the soldier shivered.

This book contains volumes four – six of The Kaerling. You can buy Fire Daughter in these 3 separate e-books: Olin Heon, Hidden Lands and Aura Vere.

I’m taking a short break for a few weeks but I’ll be back blogging right here at the beginning of May! See you all then!

Guilt-wracked

guilt-wracked
Erl tastes bitter
bile; memories return
haunted by his dark desire
revulsion fills his soul
horror stalks him
always
