Death Comes On The Wind (Fell’s Hollow), by A.J. Abbiati

Rating – 4.5 stars

Genre: Fantasy with strands of mystery and adventure.

Fell’s Hollow: a refuge for the unscrupulous and home of some nasty creatures.

The first short in this set tells the story of Chibb – a young boy new to the sea who’s already found time to break the first rule of his ship: ‘Don’t get friendly with the captain’.  As strange as this may seem, I loved the foreword to this story, a semi-fantastical background which I couldn’t quite decide was real or not.

On the whole it was well-written, imaginative, and short enough to finish in one sitting.  A warning however; it does end on a cliffhanger, but then for serialised work that’s almost to be expected and this first piece shows great potential for a set of serialised short stories some of which are already available:

The Belani Assassin (Fell’s Hollow)

Daemons and Rings (Fell’s Hollow)

The Soldier and the Son (Fell’s Hollow)
