The Ghriana warriors poured into the valley between the lake and the cliff, high-couraged and fell, sweeping the troll horde onto the precipice, pushing them over its brink where the waters tumbled. Victory seemed near - the next in a string of crucial victories - when a low, resonant throbbing disturbed the air and shivered the earth. The Ghriana faltered, suddenly weak at the knee and hollow at heart.
The troll horde recovered and, under Regenen Carbry's command, seized the field. The Ghrianan death toll grew grievous, and every conflict since had featured troll dominance, Ghrianan rout, all accompanied by that hideous throbbing groan on the breeze and rumble through the ground. Paitra wanted to see the bounty brought in by the victorious warriors. What was this prize, that its capture should bend the current of the war? She's learning about permaculture gardening and debunking popular myths about food. The Sleeper and the Spindle.

All in all, these are wonderful stories Ney-Grimm's unique blend of Nordic fantasy and fairy tale mentality is a refreshing take on the genre. He could smell them—his prey—somewhere ahead, warm and live and vibrant. My lord Koschey will be pleased with this catch. Pure and piercing amongst the scents of the elders came the perfume of the young one.
Gefnen would secure him first, then the others as chance permitted. But Koschey's deathless essence would expand threefold on the boy's vitality alone. Gefnen glanced at the star patterns in the black sky. Moonrise would come before he reached the travelers' camp, but no matter. His troll blood gave him an advantage in the dimness of starshine, mapping his surroundings by smell alone, while his human foes blundered in the dark.
But they were little better under lunar light. And they would not be expecting him. He felt his lips stretch in a not-smile, their dry surfaces cracking at the center points, oozing fluid. His sweeping tongue caught the droplets before they stained his chin. Slightly salt, strongly metallic.
