Captured – Curse Breaker

Captured – Curse Breaker

~ ~ ~

Captured by tree roots,
dragged away from Rangers grim;
the forest wants him.

“Look out!”

Sarn halted. He heard a ripping sound followed by scrabbling and lots of shouts. None of that made sense. His hearing was damaged in one ear and that damage garbled some of the warnings.

“Get down Kid!”

“Someone grab the Kid and get him down!”

Someone slammed into Sarn and bore him to the ground. Something else wrapped around his forearm and yanked on it, dragging him a man length in the leaves.

  1. Great action, Melinda. For a second I was reminded of the Whomping Willoewin Harry Potter, only this one seems far meaner.

    1. 😀 that makes me so happy to know that! I wanted to publish the entire first book by the anniversary of my sister’s death but I’ve been working too much unpaid overtime these last few months and I still haven’t written those three missing chapters…I’m now hoping to publish book one by my birthday in early March.

  2. I liked the action and the movement between scenes. The only suggestion is increase the showing – like at the start with Sarn’s hearing being damaged. You didn’t have to tell the reader that it was damaged as we would have gathered that from your previous sentences. Just a suggestion.

    Asides from that interesting story and look forward to more. 🙂

    1. Thank you for your feedback. I had shone his hearing difficulties in an earlier part of this story. I didn’t want to take time away from the action to do it again here but I am rethinking that now. I do hope you will have a chance to read the 10 parts that preceded this one, there are things in there that will be become important as the story continues. You can find all the parts in order on its TOC page:
