A brand new, never-before-seen Aerdhverse novella is available via my Patreon for subscribers at the $5 level and up! For information about Patreon subscriptions and the reward tiers, go here. If you subscribe now, you will also get my previous releases, “A Matter of Circumstance” and “The Adviser and the Diplomat.”
In The Company of Strangers is directly tied to both Ariah and “A Matter of Circumstance.” While you don’t have to read either of those to read In The Company of Strangers, it will probably be a richer experience if you do. Here is a blurb for the novella!
All Sorcha and Shayat know about Ma-Halad is that Ariah might be there. They walk through the tall gold grass with a skeleton of a plan, a handful of food, and lies on their tongues.
But Ma-Halad is ruled by The Butcher of the East, an ambitious general facing down impossible orders from the Emperor himself. Sorcha and Shayat are marked the second they appear in town. Ferreting out Ariah under The Butcher’s watchful eye will be no easy task.
