Six Sentence Sunday



This SSS is the second book in my enchantress series, Sorceress from the Sea. This book is about Alfwyn and sorceress he rescues from the sea, only a dark demonic warlord is tracking her and Alfwyn has to protect her and his land from the demon's plague.

The setup is Alfwyn is walking along the cliffs at the edge of the sea and he spots something adrift on the water:

It was a funeral barge, a custom among the people that dwelled at the edge of the sea. Poor soul. Alfwyn wondered briefly about the occupant, watching as the waves tossed the barge closer to the rocks. He couldn’t tear his eyes away as it jostled around like a feather in the wind until it crashed against a promontory of rocks,
splintering into numerous pieces. Then there was a bloodcurdling scream.

Dead men don’t scream.
