Reckless Kingdom

All Rights Reserved ©


Nobody is more unstable in life and emotion than Pippie. Banished from tribes, hanging around dangerous friends within the darkness, and getting wasted off the potent drinks of the Lands, he was as reckless as they came. All he had left now was the different bodies of the females in his bed, himself, and his expensive trades. He needed no one. Until someone needed him. A young ten-year-old boy claims that he is his brother after his mother left him in the same way she did Pippie. He realizes that the hero he was hoping for wasn't a hero at all, so he finds someone else, someone new, and that is the woman who will travel with them across the Lands outside of the tribe. Who is more interesting than the new human violinist from a significantly wealthy background that quite literally walked into Syriya after years of nothing? As for Pippie, he is not yet sure of the journey he is about to take. Not just one about transporting items or dodging the dangers of the wild. He might start to change himself. After all, the world did just get a little bigger.

“Are you sure that it is this way?”

The deep throaty voice sounded unsure hidden underneath the thick cloak. Its features are hidden from the world. It looks forward while it spoke to another shorter figure by its side who wore no cloak but only a smile staring into the vast plains seeing the jungle just shy out of reach to the naked eye.

He took out a small object and held it up to his eye for a closer look at the vast land before them that was silent underneath the three bright moons and the stars. The sight was new to them and it was breathtaking. The boy’s smile only brightened, “That has to be. I told you this trail would lead us to it.”

“To what, exactly? You never told me what you are searching for.”

“Not what I’m searching for,” he lowered his small yet powerful spyglass. “But who.”

“Then who?”

He didn’t answer. He adjusted his dark leather hat and reached his hand behind him to grab the ropes attached to the Ruchin pulling the nearly empty carriage behind him. His cloaked friend didn’t press further with the answer to the question but instead asked another, “tell me where we are going again?”

“Uh...” The boy held a puzzled look before shrugging. “One of the passing traders of this place said that if I am to find who I want to find is to be at this certain village within the Jungle, they say. I have never been in one before. I’m excited! I forgot the name of the place but the traveler was nice enough to mark it on my map.”

“And you trust that?” he saw the boy pull out his map to show his friends the black ink like markings and a circle of where they needed to go. The map didn’t show much but only where to go towards this part of the Lands. Everything else that was drawn on was added by him himself and he kneeled on the flat ground to display it more to his unassured friend.

“I think that if we keep going we can make it there by sunrise,” his eagerness showed as he looked ahead in the direction they were meant to go. “I do not doubt this.”

“You should go ahead and I will find somewhere to stay. My visit to the last village was...” The memory was still fresh in his mind. “Unwelcoming."

The boy’s smile went away at the memory as well. They had gone by another village that didn’t allow them to enter because of reasons unknown to them. The traveler they spoke to before left pretty quickly once they saw his friend. “That was that tribe though... This could be nicer.”

“I do not want to keep you from-”

“Stay calm,” the map was rolled back up and he stood and grabbed the rope to the still Ruchin. “We will figure this out."

Claire Olsen: Excellent plot, nice exploration of emotions, and lovely elements of intrigue. The writing style is lovely for the most part, but I struggled with the way it flipped between first person for Jessie and third person for Jason with no actual delineation to define it. There were times that it flippe...
