Book Description

Bonds of Blood and Honor

Jelena is a fiery castanic warrior guarding a lonely pass at the frontlines of a war for the survival of her world. She goes to the rescue of Elleon, a high elf officer, and fights at his side to defeat their enemies.

Elleon orders Jelena to accompany him on his mission to enemy territory. Together they penetrate the twisted domain of the argons—the mechanized invaders who threaten to destroy all life—and establish mutual loyalty and fierce rivalry as they battle argon foes and reanimated horrors to discover the truth at the heart of the invasion threatening their existence.

But Jelena is a loner, and she likes it that way. When their task is done, will they go their separate ways? Or will the mutual respect and attraction between them lead toward a new future together?

Set in the world of the next-generation online role-playing game TERA™, “Fire and Ice” combines the thrill of battle with the epic clash of two potent personalities in a landscape of total annihilation.

This action novelette by R.K. MacPherson is a great way for readers to experience the world of TERA.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable action-oriented story May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In terms of someone new to the game, this read was more about observing the chemistry between two strangers with a healthy dose of stealthy action stirred in for good measure. But with an eye toward the higher levels of TERA, to understand how the Argon work is a useful insight toward someone who enjoys the story and likes to roleplay in MMOs.

3.0 out of 5 stars TERA Fire and Ice Review March 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story itself looks like an excerpt from Leander's brother in the story line of TERA. As a fan of the game series I enjoyed being able to recognize the words and ways of the game and it fit well into the story. The author did a good job conveying the world as the denizens themselves would see it.
The story itself did well in showing the lore and using what we know to spin a tale of might and magic without being over the top and reducing the hero and heroine into bland, dull, super-beings that could do anything they pleased. It fit in well with the series and is definitely worth the read for any fans. The characters were well-explained, even with the quick introduction and limited space the author had to work with.
While it's worth taking a look at for anyone willing to read it, this is not a Jack London or Mark Danielewski book. There are little 'blurbs' in the writing that could use some work ("She backflipped... came up in a guard position"), and repeated words that seem to hurry the scene along rather than transition from one point to another. The only time I frowned was when (I'm not spoiling anything) a physical condition didn't seem to alter the flow of action at all, which in reality, would have drastically affected the character in question once you learn about it.
In short the characters aren't bad, the action is present and a bit of story for anyone interested in the lore. While it has drawbacks it's a good read for anyone familiar with the franchise and wants a brief glimpse into the world of TERA. Don't take my word for it, it was well worth the Washington to pass time.

I play Tera with friends from work and my son. I am familiar with both characters in the book from the game and wanted to see what it would add to my Tera lore.

It's a little unfortunate that it ends too soon. I would have like to have known more about Jelena and Elleon

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Improvement from Earlier Novel April 29, 2013
By Irena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was originally kind of put off by the first novel of the Tera short stories, but this brought a hint of romance to the norm of hack and slash fighting. I thoroughly enjoyed this little story.

More About the Author

Reading both The Hobbit and The Bourne Identity in kindergarten set R. K. MacPherson's mind permanently in the clouds. Spinning tales just came naturally after that. He wrote his first novel to impress a girl in college, which failed to win her heart, but kept his mind thinking about "What if..."

R. K. MacPherson draws upon a wide array of crazy adventures and careers in his writing, hoping to add as much authenticity as possible. He received his B.A. from Pacific Lutheran University and did graduate work in anthropology at Eastern New Mexico University. He has traveled and worked around the world, lived aboard a sailboat for two years, and is inordinately fond of spicy food. He currently lives in Japan where he's working on his next novel.
