From Winter of the Wolf: After leaving Kendryk in the lurch last week, I figured it would be mean to leave you hanging too. So here’s some more of the desperate fight with the soldiers who’ve attacked his camp. And don’t forget to check out the cover below!
Someone pulled on his leg and he slid sideways off his horse. He kept hacking away, and whoever had grabbed him vanished.
A huge fellow appeared before him, a grin revealing blackened teeth. He stood a head taller than Kendryk, but Kendryk hoped he was faster, and jabbed his sword at the giant, then backed up quickly as the big man swung a huge mace down. Kendryk sprang aside as the mace crashed into the ground next to him.
He wondered where Anton was, but couldn’t look away from his opponent. The mace came down again, and Kendryk jumped away. But then someone grabbed him and pulled him into the dirt. Too late, Kendryk reached for his dagger. His arms were pinned to the ground, and ropes tightened around his legs.
