A short story from the world of Dirt

Yona is a slave and she is cold. She, her man and others are being held in cold, dark room, hungry and ill. Some have already died. But Yona is about to be freed and escape to start an incredible journey.

This short story is a stand alone tale from the world of Dirt and tells a tale of what happens to some of the characters from the first book of the first series of Dirt. However, you do not need to have read the other books first.

 
 Yona and the Beast (Dirt Universe) by C.C. Hogan

Yona and the BeastFirst off, C.C. Hogan is NOT an author to follow the prescribed outline for fantasy and as the author of the epic fantasy series, Dirt, this short story once again brings his completely refreshing voice to life. Read it before or after reading the first three books of Dirt. Either way, you will find more to love or a fascinating world to discover.

In the world of Dirt, there are amazing races, from dragons to humans to some of the most unusual, yet intelligent creatures around. The Calliston are truly unique looking, and they are said to be related to dragons, but this one may have been tortured into blind compliance. It is the meeting of one young girl, a calliston and the soul-deep friendship that blossomed between them. Yona was a slave, her life is a nightmare of cold and dark rooms, hard work and death all around her. Is she meant for something more? When Yona is freed by a group of rescuers and dragons, she will begin an amazing journey that was destined for her.

This is C.C. Hogan’s brief tale rounding out more of the life on Dirt, the cruelties, the joys and the love that can form even in the worst of times. You will feel the story, the atmosphere and what the characters are like, even as Mr. Hogan makes you smile, cry and crave more from this enchanting author. YONA AND THE BEAST is a beautiful tale that could have gone on for many more pages without losing its charm.

I received this copy from C.C. Hogan in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
