THe Hound in the Heather
A Fantasy Adventure Novella by C.J. Heckman
Eamon has not slept since the day his little brother died. Wracked by guilt and crippled in his right leg, he spends his youth caring for his ailing father in their decrepit family home. When a sorceress suddenly appears claiming to serve a mysterious deity, he is called forth on a journey to lay his brother's soul to rest. Eamon sets off with her, hopeful for redemption, but quickly finds the world has only grown darker and stranger since he last left the comfort of home. If Eamon is to succeed in his quest, he will have to come to terms with the guilt that has haunted him all these long years.
