The Forbidden Ground – A Death Before Dragons Story
Lindsay wrote this story to stand alone (so if you’re a new reader, you can jump in and enjoy it), but it does have some spoilers for the earlier books. It takes places between Books 4 and 5 in the Death Before Dragons series. She also has other free ebooks in her list of works, so feel free to check her website. An excerpt from her online fantasy story..
The beat-up orange camper van chugged down the interstate, getting passed by semitrailer trucks, Volkswagen beetles, and motorcycles with dogs in the sidecars. As a begoggled husky looked over at us, I rubbed my face and wondered if other assassins traveled by such means. Hollywood was convinced every gun-wielding independent contractor made millions, but it didn’t work that way when you worked for the military. Or maybe the problem was that people are willing to pay more to have government dictators killed than they were man-eating wyverns and murderous vampires.
My mood brightened when the exit sign for Gold Hill, Oregon, came into view. Almost there.
“Thanks for the ride, Dimitri.” I nodded to my driver, forcing myself to sound suitably appreciative. “Maybe we can get done quickly and drive back to Seattle tonight.”
