Our two French heroes are wandering the country side when they come across Boero, a huntsman extraordinaire and his retinue of retainers. It seems a massive wolf is terrorizing this area and its demise comes with a princely reward. With nothing better to do (and being financially embarrassed) Kozef and Ceinan join up with Boero's hunting party.
However they end up in a situation that is much more sinister than they bargained for.
Some thoughts on "Grey Scourge"...
1.) a well written and interesting read. Hard to put down once into the heart of the story.
2.) two protagonists that it's almost impossible not to like and root for. Both with a touch of foolish bravado and the desire to 'do the right thing'.
3.) <spoilers> some intriguing cave and dungeon confrontations that were wonderfully told, all with a flair for description as well as great sense of pace and timing.
4.) as with all of Ceaney's stories there always seems to be more going on than just that suggested by the title, and this tale is no exception.
5.) cover art... nicely done, reflecting a scene from the tale within.
This is the first of Ceaney's books that I felt started a bit 'benignly' and I wondered if it was going to be on par (quality wise) with the other 3 books of his that I'd just finished. Well it may have started a little slowly, but it delivered a rousing good action tale by stories end.
As mentioned, this is the fourth short story I've read from this author in the past couple days, and none have remotely disappointed me. Two have been in the Kozef and Ceinan line, one a graveyard horror work called "Abomination", and one a 17th century piece based in London, UK, "The Playwright's Woman".
Despite the difference in subject matter, all have featured writing of great quality and that innate and elusive gift of spellbinding story-telling skills.
Hope to see author Ceaney do a full length book sometime in the future.
As it is, for this piece... 5 Stars.
