The Twilight Dragon & Other Tales of Annwn
Upon finishing his debut novel, The Dark Thorn, author Shawn Speakman knew he would return to its world of Annwn. He does that here in The Twilight Dragon & Other Tales of Annwn. Four short stories anchor this collection of magic and darkness, conflict and shadows: Where an ancient dragon seeking a cure for his dying race returns to the Misty Isles of his birth--to devastating result. Where an unfettered knight enters Rome's Vatican to end the threat of a vampire--who bears the darkest of secrets. Where an Arch Druid tracks a witch--who in turn chases a thief who has stolen dangerous books of shadow magic. Where a musician is coerced to return to a past she abhors--to confront a shattered gargoyle whose past is just as hated. All four short stories play a role in and are preludes to The Everwinter Wraith, the sequel novel to The Dark Thorn. As a bonus, the first three chapters of The Everwinter Wraith are also included in this collection. Annwn will never be the same again.
