This Blog post is a book review of a short story The Army of the Night and this short story is available to download for FREE. So a major bonus for you all there.
This is the short description from Smashwords.
It’s 1813. Napoleon’s army has to retreat from Spain to France, but the main pass across the Pyrenees is within reach of the British forces. In his search for an alternative route, Alaine Bellanger discovers more than just an ancient mountain trail. High in a cleft between two peaks, he finds something very strange — and someone even stranger. But who can he tell? And who would believe him?
The short story is written by Paul Collis and I downloaded this book from Smashwords myself.
I hadn't read any spoilers (I as you may know I never give spoilers myself - because they SPOIL it) so, all that I knew was that it was in the genre Paranormal fiction.
A lot of historical, action and adventure story with a large helping of paranormal to boot. A great deal of research and detail has been put into this piece of work, resulting in a very gripping tale indeed. This kept my interest throughout. My only disappointment was that the book wasn't longer.
I have given this short story an extremely well deserved 5 stars, and I will certainly be seeking out other works by this author.
The story is mentioned in his story The Scottish Movie available also on Smashwords or in print from Amazon
My next short story will be a return visit by Sarah and her friends so keep watching this blog.
