Publisher’s Description: When I crashed on this planet fifteen thousand years ago, I thought that my friend—the living spaceship Sleipnir—was destroyed. But it turns out the mysterious signal I’ve been receiving for the past nine years is his cry for help. It’s led me back to Romania, back to the mountain I almost died on, and—just maybe—back to the legendary being who once saved my life.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words…spoilers. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
This is a mind bending series. I’m just gonna start with that. Next, I’m gonna tell you to scope out the author’s web page. It will clue you in to what started this whole adventure of the Stone Born. Normally, I really don’t mention much about the web sites, but this one is rather cool. Anyway, back to the series. It’s got time travel, a spaceship, supernatural creatures, ancient beings and mythological connections-pretty much something for everyone. That’s the series, though. The short story is a short adventure to retrieve something very important and is only a tiny blip in the whole big picture.
This short comes between book 1 and book 2, but please, for goodness sake, DON’T start the short first! This is not one of those series that you can just hop in the middle and think it’ll be ok. It’s a twisted tale with a puzzle beneath the surface as well as one wrapped around the outside. It’s reading time well worth spent, that’s for sure.
Like I said, it takes place right after the ending of The Wanderer Awakens. It sheds a little more light on the living spaceship that is bonded to Viktor. The story explains what Viktor is looking to retrieve to hopefully help Sleipnir mend. It’s a well written quickie that will leave you wanting to quickly move on to The Storm Bringer, which, trust me, is something you’ll want to do.
