Ah, well this one has got me well and truly hooked -- or should I say 'clawed'. Brilliant descriptions, perfect action and that magic....no one can do this quite like you. I know I have been really lax in sticking to the books, but this one I shall read all the way.

Thank you so much,
The good news is that its just three chapters long, so not that much of a grind.

I hope you do. I have to say, Malachi is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.

May I suggest that you read my short story,
The Egyptian: The carnelian heart before Malachi, Wolfmoon, its a bit of a prequel and sets up the story.

thanks' again for your continued support for my writing, it is much appreciated.

Hello my friend!

This introductory chapter is greatly written, with beautiful descriptions and imaginative methaphors! I like the superstition-ess of this tale, the Witch and her cat-army terrorising a little, unsuspecting village :D Can't wait for Malachi to beat the crap out of that heathen with her cannibalistic tendencies! :D

I quickly found the groove for this adventure and loved writing it.

I thought it was time to delve deeper into Malachi's past anfd give him a bit more dimension, other than the fearsome killer. I do have more plans for him and Esteban in a couple of future tales.
