Four short stories focusing on certain key characters from the novel DARK OF WINTER have been brought together for the first time, along with a bonus never-seen-before first chapter from Christopher Percy’s new dark fantasy novel SINCE NEVER, Book One of The Turned Trilogy.
They were tales that were lost to the world of snow and ice in the northern territories. No one knew about them – until now.
These short stories shed some light on the inhabitants of the village of Sumner and the mighty King. Learn how it all begins… before the DARK OF WINTER strikes.
