An Answer from the North by Sarah A. Hoyt
Beautifully written, and heartbreakingly told. Simple as that.
A short story by award-winning author Sarah A. Hoyt.
There is an intruder in the kingdoms of the Fey. He came to the realm of king Albric, finding the invisible palace without difficulty and marring its magic with his iron spurs.
Albric has three days to surrender or die. He’s sent for help from the queen of the Northern Lights, of dark elves and evil magic. Will she answer in time and bury their quarrel to defend the land from a worse threat?
