Book Description

In 'Grave Gold', when a hole is uncovered after a mudslide Cassie, a university student, and Anna, her archaeology professor and lover, begin exploring what appears to be an ancient man-made cave. However, they quickly begin to suspect that this may actually be the grave of the famous Boudica. As their exploration continues Cassie begins having vivid dreams about Boudica and cannot escape the feeling that what Anna hails as academic research is actually the desecration of a sacred burial site.

In 'Dream Walker', in order for summer to arrive and the darkness of winter to depart, a village performs an annual ritual under the guidance of the grandmother who is the dreamer. The villagers know that if the ritual is performed incorrectly, or the sacrifice is not willing, then the buds of spring will never grow into the summer.

In 'Pantera II', set in Hyrcania AD 57 this short story gives an insight into the culture and society of an ancient city and provides a glimpse of Pantera's past through the eyes of the narrator Demalion of Macedon.

This exclusive short stories bundle is part of the Storycuts series.

Delightful tasters of her full length books, Manda Scott never disappoints in the sheer quality of her writing. A treat to read, like little jewels. I always look forward to more.

Once again, M.C. Scott has proved that she is the Queen of Fictional History - even in short stories - her imagination combined with historical events is superb!

I'm not generally a short story fan but these three were well written and covered interesting subjects. They'd tempt me to try one of the authors novels.
