"Queen of Dust" Coming Along Nicely

Prologue: Goat Horn Woman

            Hear now the words of Matawai….
            I am who am Matawai am Demon of the North.  Queen of Antwari, Queen of Kuwari, I have taken a jewel of the mountains.
            There will come a time when scholars will speak as though I were a sorceress, capable of turning dust into gold.  They will say my name as though it means death and recount with horror the blood I’ve shed.
            This is not new.  I am a goddess of rumors and speculation.  Listen in the marketplace; you will hear the frightened chatter.  Sit in the temple halls, hear them whisper my name.
            For I am the Goat Horn Queen of the mountains, forged from barren rock and brittle furs.  I have redrawn the lines of Anseti, and now not even history dares deny me my fame.

Book Review: Hunter

This is a fantastic book series that I highly recommend everyone get. For 4 dollars, you've got a nice, light read of about two hours that introduces the reader into a brand new world of fantasy that isn't the same old, tired, Tolkien-based stuff that litters the market these days.

The growing friendship between Inya and Selo is wonderful as each learns about the other and their bond deepens, and much like the 90s fantasy TV favourite,
Xena, it keeps this relationship at its core while also expanding on the world it's in. People aren't who you think and even those who you've met before end up surprising you.

In short, it's 4 dollars for a great read and with more to come!
