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.

Until you showed your face …

9 October, 2018

Feeling nervous, Otta followed Erl and Derri through the gate and entered the guardhouse. The heat struck Otta like a physical blow and for a moment she found it hard to breathe. Then she became aware of how her fingers and toes hurt.

“Come to the fire, travellers.” One of the guards spoke. “You must be nearly perished with cold.”

“It has been rather chilly.” Erl remarked, setting Derri down before the fire.

The guards laughed at Erl’s comment and the child cringed, staring around. Otta hurried over to him, reassuring him with quiet words. She pulled off his wraps and gloves and made him stretch out his hands to the fire. Derri did as he was told and stared into the dancing flames, entranced. Otta started removing her own woollen gloves and fur muffler as Erl continued to joke with the guards. A sudden halt in conversation indicated that something was wrong. She glanced up as she removed her hood, enjoying the heat on her face. Without exception every guard was staring at her. Outside the traders’ wagons lumbered past.

What’s wrong? she asked Erl silently.

No idea, he replied. They were fine until you showed your face …
