An Ancient Song

3 April, 2019

An Ancient Song explores the dark recesses of Otta’s soul and gives Erl a new meaning to his life.

An Ancient Song continues the twins’ quest for the “Unicorn’s Trail” with a shocking revelation at the end.

An Ancient Song takes the reader into a different world where the races are divided and immigrants seek to find their way in a strange and hostile land.

This is Volume Three of The Kaerling. It was a difficult book to write as I explored Otta’s inexplicable dislike of the despised Suryan. Like Nagaru, I wanted her to admit she had killed a man and to overcome her irrational prejudice towards the travellers who protect her.

Not everything is resolved in this volume, but, as Nagaru tells her towards the end, it’s a beginning!

Want to find out exactly how Otta and Erl escape from Aura Vere? Want to know how they discover the truth about the “Unicorn’s Trail”? Want to meet more of the Kaerlings who are both attractive and repelling at the same time?

If the answer is yes to one or more of the above questions, you need to buy An Ancient Song, now! Available at Amazon UK, Amazon US, iBooks, Nook, Kobo and many other online stores.

An extract from Silver Fire

6 April, 2018
Otta has found Weird Stones on Weird Day and, in trying to return them to the Shrine, has come into the presence of an invisible yet powerful being who speaks with her …

Otta felt excitement welling up out of the ground. Was this how Eran felt when the White Stag had spoken to him?
Keep well the Weird Stones and seek for the unicorn.
She found she was holding the stones in her left hand though she had no recollection of picking them up. “Yes, I will look after the stones,” she said. “But unicorns are just a legend aren’t they?”
Are they?
“That’s what I’ve been told.”
Have you ever tried to find them?
“Well, no…”
The light was fading and Otta became aware that the sunlight was diminished.
Stretch out your hand, ordered the voice.
Obediently she stretched out her right hand, palm up.
Turn your hand towards the earth.

She did so.
Can you feel this?
Otta jerked her hand away, surprised.
Put your hand back.
She stretched out her hand again and felt the shock of energy go through her. It was like an invisible silver river that quivered and trembled, that shot lightning through her body.
This will lead you to the unicorn, the voice promised.
“What do I do when I find the unicorn?”
I will let you know when you find him.
Otta was aware that Nagaru’s presence had faded. The sun was sinking and she was missing the Weird Day feast. She wondered if Jak and Rob had been found and suddenly knew without knowing how, that they were safe. She could feel Nagaru’s presence inside her, waiting for her to call on him. Otta shook her head, feeling strange. Then she stretched out her right hand and followed the unicorn’s trail.
Just what is the unicorn’s trail? What will Otta find? You can find out all this and more in Silver Fire which is FREE to download at iTunes, Kobo and Barnes&Noble.
Amazon US, and Amazon UK are showing this book as FREE. If you find your country’s Amazon site is still charging for Silver Fire, let them know that you can get it FREE elsewhere! Please do NOT pay for this book. It should be a FREE download!
This is the first volume in my epic fantasy series The Kaerling. I’ve put together a one and a half minute film for Silver Fire at YouTube. Please share!
