Dark magic, darker geology (or at least uncooperative rocks), a old wolf, and a Texan.
Empires came and went, but little seemed to change until an oil-field survey crew from Houston arrives on the Polish-Ukranian-Slovak border. The Galician oil fields had played out . . . or had they? And what brooded from the top of the mountain that wasn’t there (per GPS)?
Linda wants oil. Gregor and the Elect want freedom and revenge.
A dark fantasy with strong romance elements. 28K words.
Very Good Read!
“Dark magic, darker geology (or at least uncooperative rocks), a old wolf, and a Texan.”
My money is on the Texan.
Ox not damn fool.
Texan can probably cure anything with sufficient dynamite. 🙂
Read it last night, and will re-read tomorrow, both times letting heat work on sore shoulder. Well done! Definitely a romantic fantasy, with all elements in harmony. Thank you for an absence of bodice-ripping, highly impractical dress, or bizarre situations. Any location where empires overlap already has enough bizarre.
Typo: the word “lunched” appeared; was this meant to be “launched” or “lunged”? It broke my concentration for a moment.
“Lunged.” There’s always one tyop that somehow manages to escape and evade until publication. SIGH. Thanks for the catch.
A slight delay in reaching the UK store but I have it now Thankyou
Will be purchased in a moment. Looking forward to the stort.
Speaking ot typos. “Story!””
Bought it, read it – with a bobble, for a while I only a bity on the kindle, had to re-download. It was good to see a vampire treated as a monster. And I liked Gregor and Linda a lot.
Couple typos to report; “She water dripped”. and “more that could be said for some of the mangers back home.”
And I think the story says she was only there one night for the climax, but I think I counted two. Someone double check me?
It should be two. Once the ‘Zon settles down, I’ll upload the corrections and catches that I’ve been getting. (Not this week. This week is . . . busy.)
Read it! Enjoyed it very much and will be reading it again soon.
