Blurb: I, Ervyn Morryés of the Black Mountain clan, know all about control.
As the only fair-haired Dark Elf in the Highlands, I had to learn to control my fists and my temper in the face of derision.
To become the best archer amongst my peers, I had to learn to control my breathing and my movements.
But the day the half-breed called Lochan Féyes arrived at the training camp, my discipline faltered. Because—sweet gods—when I am around that aloof, blue-eyed assassin, my need is uncontrollable.
Review: Kasia Bacon has created a wholesome, intriguing world and has managed to capture the reader’s attention in just a few short stories. In less than fifty pages, she is able to present a complete universe with new languages, dialects, customs, traditions, history and beliefs. Her talent shines through, and it’s impossible to miss it; she manages to draw your interest and make you care for her characters and their world.
In this first short story in The Order series, we meet a Dark Elf with fair-hair named Ervyn Morryés, and the maternal half-breed Elf Lochan Féyes, who grew up amongst humans. Their full story is in the making, but the author decided to release a few short stories that feature the early days of them being together while she writes their novel. In The Mutt, we see the beginning of them and are introduced to their world. The POV is Ervyn’s, and it’s captivating to be in his head as he admires the new trainee from afar while searching for a way to approach him.
A great introduction to a new fantasy world with great potential and the promise for more to come.
