A Taste of Mirklin Wood #5   1 comment

This is sort of interesting – finding snippets to share that don’t give away too much of the story.

This scene involves Padraig’s niece Shyla, who will become an important character further in the series. This is sort of her introduction. Enjoy!


Front Cover RedInside the town, folk rushed about to secure anything that might be ruined or killed by the storm. Glynn led their clattering way up the broad curving avenue as wind carried a storm of dust over the wall and straight into Shyla’s face. Her horse shied sideways, blowing, as she struggled to get her hair out of her mouth and the dirt out of her eyes. When the tears blinked free, she cast about in mild anxiety, for she didn’t see Glynn or Matryc. The dust formed a whirlwind at the end of an alley. Her gut tightened. This felt … deliberate. Every fiber of her being warned that way lay danger. She stood in her stirrups and spied the towers of the dun in the opposite direction. She’d somehow turned down a side street in the brief time she’d been unable to see. She turned the horse’s head and started upward.

A crack of lightning rent the sky and sent a loud rolling boom through the town streets. Her palfry bolted forward, careening round corners, hooves clattering on the cobblestones. It was dangerous to run a horse like this through crowded streets, but she doubted much that she could settle it, much less control it at the next thunderclap.
