119: Critique of a short story or opening chapter up to 5000 words + signed copies of HIERATH and THE FELINE QUEEN by Joanne HallPosted: March 13, 2011
Hierath – In this thrilling fantasy novel, the world stands on the brink of peace, the first peace for a thousand years. A fragile alliance has been formed between the New Kingdom and Telesia, and they have agreed in principle to set aside their centuries-old quarrel over land and culture. The deal has been forged by the efforts of Alex, the peace-loving newcomer to the throne. But things are about to change… Alex meets and falls in love with Lydia, a fisher’s daughter from the east, to the displeasure of both his family and his friends. His aunt has already arranged for the alliance with Telesia to become a permanent and marital one, and the sudden arrival of Lydia throws all her carefully laid plans into jeopardy. And then an horrific act of betrayal plunges the world once more to the brink of war…
The Feline Queen is a collection of short stories by Joanne Hall, to be published by Wolfsinger in the next few weeks.
