"One of the little buggers shoved it's head in his mouth and he felt them pushing into every opening his armor would allow them...."
I actually jumped in my seat like WTH?? Like oh crap, that was intense! I could only imagine going through that.
So, let me go back and introduce you to General Foxwise Penny-Thorn. He's the leader of Queen Corydalis's honor guard and General of defenses in the Lurr Forest fae. Thorn along with, Bristle, and Barb have been charged with the retrieval of the Falriggin's Shard. "You need not know why, other than this: the Heart Tree and the future of the Lurr Forest fae is at stake..."
What I like is that the development of the characters moves at the pace of the action, Barb is to me like Natasha Romanov, a.k.a. Black Widow of The Avengers. Tough, smart, beautiful, and deadly. Foxwise is great because he is not the typical Captain America, Jason Bourne type, rarely hurt, and without any fear. Fear keeps you on your toes. Not that he is a wimp by any means, just not stoic. Bristle the elf reminds me of Gimli the dwarf warrior from LOTR, a fun, loveable, onery character.
I like that Author M.R. Mathias is not afraid to introduce the reality of loss in battles and quests. And though this story was short it never lacked movement. In contrast, I read Mathias's Sword & The Dragon preview, which I felt lacked the approach of "Foxwise"; being too wordy for my taste, although "Points of Purchase" has left my mouth at least a couple times a day since. :) I just expected it to move a bit faster. Mathias has a voice of his own and seems to have a never ending supply of stories. He has created a vivid world, that lives and breathes in a digital space. I am starting the next one...now.
If you haven't read anything of this series yet, this will give you a nice short story that leaves you wondering what part of a greater adventure this could possibly be from. It also had me wondering if any of these characters might be involved later in the overall Vanx Malic quest. This story is estimated at only about 28 pages yet it will give you a feel for the intensity, suspense and some of the horrible evils being faced in this environment.
This short tale just made me want to get started reading the next book in the series right away to see if any of this was indeed related to the main story. So as requested read this small tale before reading 'That Frigid Fargin Witch' (Malic Series Vol.4 ) and this mini-quest may become even more meaningful to you later. (Now remember I only said 'may'). And even if you do nothing else, you will still get to read this very short and exciting adventure tale for free. Now that isn't so very bad is it?
