Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 3: Grim Oath

by Will Spero

Grim Oath   “Norweegee,” called Cahrin. Where had the xaffel gone to now? It was just like him to disappear when it came time to clean. Master Ulfin had finished dinner and retired upstairs to his room. That meant no evening lesson for Cahrin, which was a welcome break. She had been training twelve hours […]

Tendrils of Darkness — Chapter 2: The Sentinel

by Will Spero

The Sentinel   Daen managed his establishment according to two rules. First, manners mattered. He treated all patrons as if they were guests instead of the deadbeat rabble they generally were. If his courtesy was not returned in kind, the guest would find himself bouncing off the dirt road outside. Second, he gave no preferential […]

Tendrils of Darkness Prologue and Chapter 1

by Will Spero

Review: Stiletto by Daniel O’Malley

by danica

Stiletto is the second (and last it seems) in a series called The Checquy Files. I read it without having read ‘The Rook’ and I wasn’t out of the loop, in fact I didn’t even realise until I was already well into the story. From Amazon because I don’t do summaries When secret organizations are […]

New Kindle Oasis

by Jon Snow

I love books. I love to touch them, to read them, to admire them from my bookshelf. When I got a kindle, I wasn’t so sure. But the more I used it, the more I appreciated it. I’m one of those people who now are happy to do both, but definitely still want to see […]
