This short story is a fantasy world set, Indiana Jones style that packs a hell of a lot into its 21 or so pages.
The hero of the story is a thief, down to
his last few silvers who hears talk of a temple and treasure in the nearby swamp
and decides to have some of the bounty for himself.
The story has huge
possibilities for a follow up and I hope to see much more from this author
I got through this story in one sitting but when I got out of bed just now I decided to have another read over coffee and biscuits, and it's even better second time around. There is a hell of a lot of world building for a short story. This author is surely going to be one to watch.
And it only costs 77p (I think that's a dollar and change in the USA but don't quote me on that)
