The Fire Witch's Tale

Horror / Fantasy

The Hound

Her name is Eva.

I am The Hound.

Don’t let my appearance fool you. I know I look like a wolf, but I am a hound. I go by many different names in your land and your people talk about me in myth and legend, but I am not a myth or legend. I come from the Underworld – a place of great sorrow and pain for your people. Your kind say only bad people can go to the Underworld, but no. All of you will venture into the Underworld on your way to somewhere else.

You call the Underworld your hell or your purgatory. Uffern or inferno. But no.

It is the Underworld.

The Underworld was here long before your hell. It was here when the land was only ice, when the first men trekked north into this land and before the Celtic tribes inhabited it. It was here before the Roman, Angle, Saxon, Viking or Norman invasions, before the Christians came and the Pagans disappeared, and it will be here still after your people are gone. It was the first to be here and it will be the last. It is older than Annwn or Avalon, and any other godly otherworlds the many gods and goddesses created.

But I am not here for you, I am here for her.

She is Eva and she will be delicious.

She thinks she is safe, but she is wrong.

The king of the Underworld has a plan for her.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too.
