I thought it was cool and different reading about an ex warrior Usually it s about a teen learning how to fight or about a young assassin, so this was different We learn a little bit about the MC Ysabons past but not the whole thing, which I would ve liked to have know I guess the only thing I had a hard time with was with the names I suck at pronouncing names and these were some names I never heard of before I don t know how I feel about the ending, I wanted to know what happens, is there a hap [...]
What a brilliant short story Just as you were getting into it the story finished.For me it s a shame that half of the download was 5 chapters of another book It s a personal thing but I tend not to read snippets if I haven t got the actual book Still has 5 stars as the story was engaging.
ShortShort and sad but so good Size a bit misleading as first 5 chapters of another book included I did not read them as I prefer complete books and stories.
This was a short book.It s kind of an odd book It kind of left me wondering what happened to some of the characters though
I enjoyed this short story It was interesting and left you hanging which makes me want to read of her books to find out what happened Has action and suspense Nice writing style.
I liked this story a lot It has a nice idea and story line, not too complicated That let s the author develop the character fully, so I d classify this as a story about a character than about the plot A fun, quick read.
Ysabon is an ex fighter She s retired and gone home to live with her adult daughters and when a band of men appear out of the snow and ask for her help she says no she s too old to fight The men warn of a pack of creatures widowhulks that will target the town They want to go to the nearest fort and ask for help It s a good plan But when only her nephew makes it back alive, the plan has to change This is a short story that was free on Kindle as an intro to the author It is only a third of the fil [...]
An aged warrior living at a forge with her family learns that villagers are in danger because of roving bands that come down from the mountains She goes to work repairing her sword to come to the aid of villagers.The frozen world is so well described the snow falling from branches, the sound of skis and the main character is so compelling She s different than other fantasy heroines an older female, retired soldier, has her own family but is made of stern stuff I would love to read a full length [...]
This is a short story, but oh, how I wish the author would have created a regular novel I want So much depth is in steeled from the characters to the details of the story Ysabon learns a large pack of Widowhulk have come down from the mountains, traveling further than is the norm and have attacked and killed many kinsmen The garrison across the river must be warned For a short story, it s epic in the size of the tale.Eery still winter that causes tears to freeze as they fall, horrifying Widowhu [...]
Short but sweet.A great high fantasy short that feels like a prologue to a much larger novel.The story was left with an indescribable ending that wrapped up the epic short telling.
An elegant fantasy short story, crafted through strong characterization and character interactions rather than spells or swords A simple plotline builds to an inevitable conclusion, as an old warrior shakes off retirement and age for one last, necessary battle Five strong stars.
A Story of Wales That Never WasThe short story of A Winter s Bite was exactly what I love in fantasy fiction The characters were real, and the monsters were intense I look forward to by the author, and highly recommend it
A short story to make want to read the series.Unexpected Well written and a possible ending to a main character From a set of stories featuring a main character Adventure and other realm evils Great fantasy.
This is the first story I ve read from Annie Bellet and it turned out to be an excellent book I love authors who take pride in their work and not only tell great stories, but write them with the spit and polish that a good book deserves Will be reading of this author s work very soon.
A Great ShortstoryI was reading the 20 sided sorceress series and wanted to sample Annie s other work This is a great story of an aging fighter and her last stand for hearth and home Great read.
Very good, very sad, fantasy story about a retired mercenary who picks her sword back up.
Short, but excellent.
I really want to know what happens next and with it being a short story, I m sure it could have been added Suspenseful.
Great short story Much too short in my opinion only because it left me wanting a lot .
Just a fun little short story that leaves you wanting just a bit .
A different kind of adventure Some will like others not Found it an interesting read Like authors style and would definitely read writings.
