A beautiful short story about the slave called Yona and a huge Calliston, from the World of Dirt.
Yona was cold and so were all the others. Shut in a freezing room in a hall buried in a gorge in the North Hoar Ridge, she knew she had two possible fates: She would die here or be forced to work in the mines. That much they knew.
But then, as those around her were beginning to succumb to the cold, a young man smashed down the door and told them they were free.
So begins the incredible tale of Yona and the Beast as the slaves escape across the huge continent of Bind on an incredible Calliston, a giant beast.
This short story relates what happens to a few characters that we met briefly in Dirt, book one of the Dirt Fantasy Epic. But you do not need to read the main books to enjoy this small offering. It is completely standalone and can be read on its own.
About the Author
CC Hogan is a writer and old muso that loves nothing more than cuddling up with an idea, a glass of wine, a pot of hot coffee and chucking words around happily. Alright, he also just likes cuddling, but that is less interesting.
He is a Londoner born and bred but dreams of a tiny cottage by the sea.
At the moment he is buried in a world called Dirt, a huge fantasy that spans a thousand years and is a tale of love, war, family and dragons. Unsurprisingly, in the book can be found a cottage by the sea...
CC also likes to write poetry and is trying to learn how to draw. He is always happy to answer questions, though the quality of answers may depend on time of day, wine quantity, full stomach, lack of money and so forth...
