I rarely, if ever, bother to invest my time into short stories. I only read this one because I didnt notice that it was a short story until it ended! But dang nabbit it was good while it lasted! Now Ive half a mind to find the author and demand they get off their butt and finish it! DMB

Great short story! This story was about 40ish pgs. An old warrior women is faced with a new threat. Will she let others save the village or risk herself? Really well written story. I've read her other stories and they have been well done!

This short story by Bellet focuses on an unusual protagonist: an older woman, who has left behind her life as a mercenary to raise her daughters and grandchildren. Kudos to Bellet for changing up the usual fantasy tropes. Also, the first several chapters of her Welsh fantasy are lots of fun. Highly recommended to fans of Jolene Dawe, Ilona Andrews, and Mercedes Lackey. -- lyradora
