What’s Jessa’s story, “A Veil is Parted,” about?
Simith of Drifthorn is tired of war.
After years of battle between the Thistle court and the troll kingdom, even a pixie knight known for his bloodlust longs for peace.
Meeting with the troll king in secret is the only hope for a ceasefire. When the trolls ambush him instead, Simith flees through a doorway hidden by magic into another world.
Wounded, he’ll need to defeat his pursuers and get home before anyone realizes he’s gone. If his commanders find out what he’s been up to, the trolls will be the least of his worries.
In Skylark, Michigan, Jessa leaves a party after some devastating news. Cutting through her neighbor’s sunflower farm, she runs into a fight between creatures straight out of a fantasy novel – only the blood is very real.
When one of them falls to his attackers, Jessa decides to intervene. She’s known too much death to stand idly by, but what does a poet like her know about fighting?
As their weapons turn against her, Jessa realizes how much she stands to lose, even for someone who’s already lost everything.
