Free short story The Soothsayer now available

Posted on November 15, 2015 (Subscribe to Blog)

With the release of Mountain of Whispers in audiobook format, I was inspired to take a peek at the soothsayer who's popped up once or twice in the series. The first time was outside Dr. Kessler's house after Miss Simone was stung by a manticore, and it was the soothsayer's warning that inspired the shapeshifters to go to Whisper Mountain.

Can anyone remember the next time he showed up and what he warned of? ;-)

The Soothsayer
The old soothsayer has been around a very long time, cursed with premonitions. He usually keeps them to himself, because his dreams come true no matter how much warning he offers. But sometimes a dream is too important to ignore.

This latest short story – which as always is more of a single chapter than a self-contained story – follows the soothsayer one morning after a fairly significant dream. Call this a companion piece to the "Unicorn Poachers" story that I posted a couple of months ago, which in turn means it's another hint at the brand new shapeshifter series starting in the new year.

Read The Soothsayer and other short stories, and look for another next month!

You have no idea how much this story, and the first bit of the new book are making me want to read the new book. Do you know when it might be out? I love the IOF series and can't wait for the new book[s?]!

Ha! It's early days yet, Hunter, but I'm aiming for March 2016. Glad you're liking the teasers. :-)

It's in the works, Rosamund. :-) I'm looking at March 2016 for a release date. Can you hold on until then? Ha!

I'm not sure if I can hold on!
