The Wandering Land

by Jamie Killen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GENRE: Dark Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

On a summer night in a sunbaked desert city, the wandering land appears. A fairytale village nestled in dense forest, it is a place of ruined castles, abandoned treasures, and strange creatures living in the shadows. Brought together by this impossible place are five visitors: failed painter Eli; art professor Amal; young lovers Darcy and Wes; and mysterious, haunted Coyote. Together they explore their own secret village, an entire world hidden in plain sight.

But there is darkness beneath the magic, a force pulling the visitors deeper and deeper into the place’s mysteries. As the boundaries between the secret land and the outside world begin to collapse, each of the visitors is confronted with visions of an otherworldly child, a child whose existence holds the key to understanding everything about the place that has drawn them together.

Who is this child? Why did she choose them? And will she ever let them go?

EXCERPT:

Coyote was in the middle of the grocery store when she heard the voice. She reached for a loaf of bread, the doughy white bread she could afford, just as the whispering started. It was a language she knew and didn’t know at the same time, a trilled guttural r and singsong vowels. She didn’t understand the words, but the meanings flowed before her vision like subtitles in a movie. She swayed, stumbled backwards, and knocked a bottle of corn syrup off the shelf.

“This isn’t fair,” she said through clenched teeth as sticky black syrup oozed against her shoe. “They haven’t even left yet. You haven’t even been alone yet.”

But the whispers went on, low and wheedling and telling Coyote she was the one to bring them back, she was the foundation, didn’t she know that, she had to be a better shepherd, she had to make sure they didn’t go astray—

A growl slipped from Coyote’s throat as her teeth snapped down on the colorful words that were both sound and script in the same instant. She tore through them, and somewhere she heard a little yelp of pain as the voice retreated back to where it came from.
