I was given an advance review copy of Bleizgeist by the author, who is a friend of mine - but I would have enjoyed this novella anyway!
In the town of Ingary, wild magic still lives on in the blood of a few, but while the memory of the ancient ties with nature are still venerated, anyone who displays such talents is shunned and feared by the rest of the people. Marishka is such a woman, living on the fringes of the town, bereaved by the death of her parents and now abandoned by her lover. The

This book is a fantastic one.

Literally. :)

The people here are as harsh as the landscape, but they're not without their warmth, and in a land of perpetual winter, warmth is important. Heck, even in a world not cursed with perpetual winter, warmth is important. The warmth Marishka finds is not exactly conventional, which makes her story all the more intriguing.

How do you survive as an outcast in a place as harsh as Ingary? Beyond that, how do you thrive?

Read this book and find out. Seriously, read

I really enjoyed reading this. It's so well written that I fell into it and didn't climb back out until I'd finished.

The story is a realistic one - loss, love and betrayal in a world full of sheep and wolves. The twist is perfectly wound into the rest of the story - you don't see it coming at all.

It's only short coming is that it's too short! I want to see more of Marishka and her pack...

“Before long, the smokey spectre appeared, as I knew it would, the barest whisper of a shadow, inky and incandescent. It darted forwards, then back, closer, then ppfft, it was gone in an instant, only to return, darker and more substantial. As ever, it grew bolder, and bolder, until finally it dared to drift through the window and into my home.
Every night I had lain here, the geist had come.”
“Without Bardawulf's pelt about me I felt naked before the crowds, yet I knew what I would invite if folk saw me wearing it. The whispers would become shouts, the shouts accusations, and finally cries of terror, and even if they did not whip me at the post or burn me for my gramarye, the fear would swell within their minds. Their thoughts would focus on naught but me. And I would find myself at the mercy of an onslaught of geiste from which even Lynae would be unable to defend me.” 0 likes
