I’m currently taking a short break from writing The Mirror of His Soul to bring a new short story to the website. The Wolves of Winter is a tale that has been around in my head since the first inception of the land of Rhoderica, though the need to get their story down on paper was not as urgent as getting the first cycle of Song of the Elves up and running.
However, as I am starting to plot books 4, 5 and 6, the events of this tale have a bearing on the actions of Kirik and the Eidurson’s as they fight the dark wave of terror engulfing the continent. It is therefore time to introduce this strand of Rhoderica’s history, so that you can gain full enjoyment of these later volumes.
I want the Wolves of Winter to be out there for a long time before they appear within the pages of Song of the Elves, to allow time for the legend to grow and become embedded in the history of the world.
So, look out for this tale of courage and fortitude against overwhelming odds, which also introduces a handful of new creatures.
More details next week…
