Alliandre

thumbnail_new_Alliandre_myblurbsWe found her the day we conquered the Isle of Ipsen Watch. From the decks of our ships, we spotted a young woman poised on the hill next to a hovel, her emerald green dress billowing in the breeze. When we reached the hut we discovered our eyes had deceived us over the distance. She was old even then, even in the early days of our conquest. We didn’t know her name, none of our shamans could discover it. We delved her mind, but only memories of events since our arrival in the harbor lay there. None of those included a name.

War Chief Gersand wanted her kept alive, hoping to discover the hiding place of the Guardian who lived on this island, and the secret of defeating the shield barring us from reaching the mainland of Ipsen. [ebook free on Amazon March 6th & 7th.]

  1. I’m marking my calendar—there’s no way I’m missing out on reading the rest of this.

    I’m with caitlin: the Lady in Green is a trap!

  2. Yeah, because a woman with no memory isn’t suspicious at all… Sounds to me like they might be making a mistake keeping her alive, but since they don’t seem like nice people, I’m okay with that.

  3. If you like this snippet of an opening, you will love the surprise ending! I know I did. Don’t forget to take advantage of the free ebook download at Amazon on March 6 & 7.

    • Veronica,
      Thanks for stopping by … not as riveting as your snippet and being snatched by a croc! Glad you liked it.

  4. A very atmospheric excerpt! So intriguing. I can easily picture everything. I like the way everything fits together here; sometimes one thing stands out in an excerpt, but I just like the whole thing.

  5. I’m intrigued! The snippet drew me in from the start, making want so much more! Well done!

    • Karen,
      Thanks so much for stopping by and equally happy that you enjoyed the snippet. Appeciate your visit.
