a monthly saga
posted on the 7th of each month - until the narwal is found
The search continues for the narwal and stolen treasure...
On the night of the New Moon, the Lady Anne slipped through a portal in the Caspian Sea to enter the Iron Seas. Aboard this vessel was our infamous Narwal.
He now sits in a pub, the Compass Rose (noted in Here There Be Monsters by Meljean Brook), sipping a third mug of mead.
He waits with the gem.
He waits for nightfall.
He waits for the crowd to become boisterous.
He waits for the hooded one to emerge when least expected.
He is a patient one.
Meanwhile, the Rusty Dagger docks in a nearby location.
She has sailed the seven seas in search of the Narwal to no avail.
Our Capt Vix has finally arrived.
Due to the chill in the air, she dons her cloak. She pulls her hood over her face before heading to the nearest pub.
Three all-new novellas of the supernatural and steampunk kind...
"THE BLUSHING BOUNDER" by Meljean Brook
A Tale of the Iron Seas - While the search for a killer puts Constable Newberry’s life in danger, he faces a danger of another kind: to his heart, by the woman forced to marry him. What will it take for this prudish bounder to convince his wife to stay? -read an excerpt
"VIXEN" by Jill Myles
Miko’s denied her were-fox nature for far too long and turned her back on her vixen heritage. But when she meets two very sexy cat-shifters, she has to decide if she truly wants to give up on her frisky side, or embrace it. Because the were-fox in her doesn’t want to choose between both men…it wants them both.
"KITTEN-TIGER & THE MONK" by Carolyn Crane
A Disillusionists Novella - Sophia Sidway, Midcity’s most dangerous memory revisionist, seeks out the mysterious Monk in the wasteland beneath the Tangle turnpike, hoping for redemption…but it turns out that the Monk is not all that pious, and the turnpike is no turnpike at all.
