I, Ervyn Morryés of the Black Mountain clan, know all about control.
As the only fair-haired Dark Elf in the Highlands, I had to learn to control my fists and my temper in the face of derision.
To become the best archer amongst my peers, I had to learn to control my breathing and my movements.
But the day the half-breed called Lochan Féyes arrived at the training camp, my discipline faltered. Because—sweet gods—when I am around that aloof, blue-eyed assassin, my need is uncontrollable.
Point of view:
First Person. All from Ervyn’s POV.
While some of the shorts in the Order Universe are stand alone – The Mutt is one of several connected tales that should be read in order.
This is a cliffhanger. The Mutt is a really short story (less than 30 min to read), but enjoyable. Ervyn is obsessed with and pursues his fellow Elvin warrior, Lochan. Kasia Bacon’s writing style packs a delightful punch and it is so easy to fall into the world she’s created. The book ends with a steamy encounter and Ervyn deciding to alter his future plans for Lochan.
I’m diving right in to The Highlander.
