From Milla Vane—a warrior princess must tame The Beast of Blackmoor to earn a place among her people. But she quickly discovers that the beast isn't a monster, but a barbarian warrior who intends to do some taming himself.
This is a short piece that I wrote for a blog and features Mala's cousin, Laina, who was mentioned in "The Beast of Blackmoor." This takes place after that story but there are no spoilers for it.
Wow, I really enjoyed both of these! And yeah that we're going to get more with at least 2 full length books, because these were both under 150 pages combined. I need more of this world, and I can't wait to learn more!
Beast of Blackmoor, well, this book was graphic, both with the violence and with the sex. Both of these characters are warriors, and they live life large in both of those arenas, so it makes sense. And I think we'll be seeing a lot of that in this series!
I was rooting for the both of them. Mala was on her quest to tame the beast, who happens to be Kavic, and if she succeeds, she gets the strength of 10,000 warriors, which her country needs for the return of a great evil. If she loses, she's outcast. So there's a lot riding on this!
Kavic on the other hand, has a pretty rough past, and made a poor decision to anger Mala's goddess, who told him that the end was near when the red lady came. The red lady being Mala. So yeah, there was a lot of complex, fun times, because the taming, he has a pretty different and negative thorough about it than what Mala intends! Made for fantastic reading!
Silent Night is a short scene, and we get to see Laina, Mala's cousin. And it is so short, I want to know what her main quest is, and why she can't speak because of it. Maybe this story is part of the reason why, but I hope that we learn more in the full length book!
Really enjoyed the both of these, and I can't wait for more!
