Editor’s Note: This adventure isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s gonna be a full-blown Tolkien-style journey that’ll keep you flipping pages.
I loved the vivid landscapes and characters!
Readers who love The Lord of the Rings will like HELGA: OUT OF HEDGELANDS.
Excerpt: “Moving with horrific speed, the kayaks approached Helbara and Helga’s hiding-place. Suddenly they slowed, pausing about fifty yards away. Using only hand signals to communicate, the Wrackshee slavers silently peered here and there for any sign of their prey. Each time a slaver’s gaze seemed to fix on their hiding-place, Helbara’s heart raced wildly.
Slowly, the Wrackshees again moved forward. They were now close enough that their stench nearly made Helbara gag, but, to her relief, their slow advance and darting looks indicated that she and Helga were not yet discovered. In the shadowy moonlight the deeply sunken eyes of the Wrackshees stood out like deep bowls against their pasty, pale faces. Even across the distance that still protected them, the moon set the dark sockets in sharp relief against the evil milk-furred faces. Living skulls. Helbarba shuddered. She could now make out the individual razor-sharp tips—glinting like pale vicious teeth—of the dozens of small throwing lances the Weasels carried on bandoliers slung over their shoulders.”
