The Vampire Bat – The Butterfly Princess

Karalis-promo-title

KARALIS The cave’s damp stone walls arched upwards. Amongst the giant stalactites, a colony of vampire bats blanketed the ceiling.

Something Wicked This Way Comes – The Butterfly Princess

Merchant-promo-title

THE MERCHANT The filthy white mule’s nose practically dragged along the ground. An unusual collection of cages hung from the wobbly wagon’s canvas tent, banging into each other.

We have company.” Two cave trolls sat on the ground outside the ravine. “Oh boy,” Rose whispered. “My brother and I call them Fart Trolls.” “Fart Trolls. That’s a good one.” Fischer pressed close against the rock, his long ears flat against his back. “They come north of … Read More →

Cave Troll – The Butterfly Princess

Troll-promo-title

THE CAVE TROLL “Looky here.” A cave troll stepped from the shadows, his massive hand crashing down. “A little white bunny.” A hungry grin revealed uneven rows of sharp teeth. The over-sized incisors glistened with drool. The beast held its catch by the scruff of the neck and released a deep, guttural laugh. A fog of troll spittle rained down.

Two Rooks – The Butterfly Princess

Rooks-promo-title

PHILLY AND SHU A voice filled Philly’s head, but it wasn’t his mistress’s. It wasn’t painful like hers, but if he listened, it could be just as dangerous. Promise me.

(excerpt from The Butterfly Princess) THE … Read More →

Kuda – The Butterfly Princess

Kuda-detail-2

Unlike their relatives, tree trolls were renowned for their gentle disposition, intelligence, and relatively small size. They preferred privacy but tolerated the inevitable intrusions by other creatures seeking their wisdom. (excerpt from The Butterfly Princess)  THE STORY … Read More →

The Dragon – The Butterfly Princess

Dragon-promo-title

THE DRAGON’S EGG “Look,” I breathed. A crack appeared in the egg. Another crack— then another. The egg wobbled. A chip of the egg’s shell came off. A coal-black eye appeared at the hole. It inspected the new world, blinked, then moved away from the crack. The egg shuttered. Another chip broke free. A claw poked through. Then Golden Hill’s first dragon popped out of its egg. (excerpt from The … Read More →
