A Cold Cry
A lone man, a great evil...
"Etyr fyn edyn abh-lídyn fyn húr calodha thíythef."
There are those whose life endures for many ages.
Of old, the Rodronians called them 'legaeësser', and the Thiredanians 'cer cidraedre', and many aided men, but some became dark in their thoughts, and were full of malice towards all.
A brief story, archaic in style and rich in description and metaphor, A Cold Cry will appeal particularly to admirers of J.R.R Tolkien, as well as any who like high fantasy, adventure, and a sense of mystery.
"I was enthralled throughout! The language creation and the vocabulary...it was all very magical...And the plot never ceased to amaze me! Intense and intriguing!" - Mishi_And_Books (author of 'The Elphen Volleys')
"I so love this made up language. So Tolkien/ GRR Martin of you 😘" - Dante_Greywolf ('A New Dawn')
"Exciting. I can't wait to read more. Honestly, everytime I read your writing, I feel that I am learning more about how to be a better writer myself." - pastelpumpkin ('Was it Just a Dream')
"Everything you write reads so well, even though it feels like I'm standing in some otherworldly place and ancient time. Incredible choice of words and arrangement." - LuckyPlum ('Lord Vane' and 'Brittle')
"Carras makes my heart hurt. I love him to pieces though [...] The title references are spot on." - mossfire946 ('From the Darkest Depths I Rise')
