A mysterious and powerful man. A scared and dangerous child. Winter, snow, cold, and death. Bring to a simmer, stir, add salt to taste. This is going to be good.

Magical orphan heroes are so abundant these days, some worlds have started trading them as currency. ("A whole Luke for that old goat? Cor, that ain't worth half a Kvothe! But tell you what, throw in the cheese wheel, I'd be willing to pay eight Eragons or so. Final offer.") And here we have Magz, the ghost child--a little gem, rough and unpolished, but make him shine and we'll be able to tell his value.

The Ghost Child: A Carnage Novelette (available here on Smashwords) by Goodreads author (and friend) Simeon Stoychev, is a very strong beginning to a (hopefully) much longer and grander tale. It stands alone quite well, with enough mystery to keep you hooked--I know I am. Keep writing, sir! This Goodreader demands more!
