This week’s Notable & Quotable, as I’m sure you would assume, comes from Fires that Forge.
“I think it’s time we had a word,” came from the dark corner near the iron stove.
Silas was innately calm however he calculated that startlement would serve him best. He allowed himself a slight squeal and jumped as he turned to face the voice. A figure emerged from the deep shadow there, impossibly unfolding, until it stood the height of a grown man. A man dressed in one of the Sanctum’s nurses’ coats.
“Your father and I had business,” the figure said. “Unless you prove to be a complete fool, I see no need in that business waning.”
“How did you get in here?”
“I have my ways, ways that you would not understand.”
“I might surprise you,” Silas said.
“You have, Young Steward Silas of House Morosse, you have.”
“Let’s not get caught up in that while we have business to discuss.”
“Did you kill my parents?” Silas asked.
That question was answered with a genuine laughter seemingly born of complete surprise.
“That you should ask me that,” the figure said as he emerged fully from the shadows wearing the face of a nurse Silas knew well. “That is quite funny. More surprises yet. Rest assured, I know who killed Steward Killian and Lady Helena. Let us not speak of such mundane topics. Let us get to it as the miners say.”
Another audiobook fresh out of the recording booth is Kim Vermaak’s The Fire Within The Storm. Give it a listen. This week we also have a great fantasy tale from R.A. Lewis, Born of Air, which is also available as an audiobook through Audible and Amazon. “The dragon riders disappeared the year she was born.
Kalina is a nobody, an orphan whose only remarkable trait is the silver hair she is forced to hide. But when she overhears that she might be a child of the Valdir, a silver-haired race of dragon riders that disappeared sixteen years ago, she chooses to leave her old life behind and venture into the unknown to discover who she is and where the dragons disappeared to.”
As to life here in our little corner of the world, we are all doing well. This past weekend I continued the tutelage of young Master William, my great-nephew, in the wonderful world of fantasy RPGs.
Pinker has also stepped up her game in regard to our morning routine. She knows that when I put on my boots, I’m leaving the house (maybe to be gone FOREVER!). Thus, she will either bring me a fetch toy to drop at my feet while I’m trying to get them on or she will lay on the bed giving me hurtful looks. She has now stepped up her game. When a 110-pound dog doesn’t want you to put your boots on, it becomes quite a task.
