Three time author Graham Austin-King has released Fae–The Wild Hunt. This is an independently-published novel.
Fairies… The Fae… The stuff of bedtime stories and fables.
But sometimes the fairy tales are true. Sometimes they hold a warning…
For a hundred generations the Fae have been locked away from the world, in the cold, the Outside. They have faded out of sight and mind into myth and folklore, but now the barriers are weakening and they push against the tattered remnants of the wyrde as they seek a way to return.
As a new religion spreads across the world, sweeping the old ways and beliefs away before it, a warlike people look across the frozen ocean towards the shores of Anlan, hungry for new lands. War is coming, even as the wyrde of the Droos is fading.
Only by realising the truth lost in a child’s tale will the world hope to withstand the wild hunt.
Fae–The Wild Hunt released on March 9, 2014. It costs $0.99 and is 349 pages long.
The Lady Scribe’s Notes: Some of you may have noticed that this novel is a little over a month old. Even when I’m actively on the prowl for new books, things get missed. Sometimes a cover doesn’t grab the attention. Sometimes I just don’t end up on the page the book shows up on while I’m browsing. Sometimes the description just doesn’t have a character that grabs me, hiding the great potential of the book. The book blurb didn’t really inspire me, but I’m glad I read the excerpt, since the start is enjoyable. The novel starts with a moment of truth, and I always enjoy that sort of opening–especially when it involves someone finally standing up for themselves,
This one found its way to my e-mail box, and I enjoyed the introduction enough I thought it was worth posting on FBW.
What caught my attention about this title is the fact that it reminded me of why I love to read. There’s something about Graham Austin-King’s writing style that takes me back to my childhood and the first books I read.
