Haunted by his past. Hunted in the present. Uncertain what is real.
Athson has seen things that aren’t there and suffered fits since being tragically orphaned as a child at the hands of trolls and Corgren the wizard. When a strange will mentioning a mysterious bow comes into his possession, he’s not sure it’s real. But the trolls that soon pursue him are all too real and dangerous. And what’s worse, these raiders serve Corgren and his master, the hidden dragon, Magdronu, who are responsible for the destruction of his childhood home. Athson is drawn into a quest for the concealed Bow of Hart by the mystic Withling, Hastra, but Athson isn’t always sure what’s real and who his enemies are. With Corgren and Magdronu involved, Athson must face not only frequent danger but his grasp on reality and the reasons behind his tragic past.

Reviews for The Black Bag:
“P.H. Solomon envelopes you in a world of witches where we wonder if the young girl can weave her way out of wicked trouble.”
“The Black Bag is a wonderful fairytale that introduces us to a young woman, Coryss, who has gotten herself into trouble with a gaggle of witches. As she stitches the burial bags for her mother and father, she faces a crucial decision. Does she stand and fight, or does she flee. The author has created a vivid world where you feel the sense of hopelessness when Coryss faces not just her enemies, but also those who may be able to help her. A well woven tale!”
“I love finding a short read on occasion, and this one was good. No big twists, but vivid images and a fun character. Easily read in one session is a bonus for me.”
“This is a great short story of 23 pages. It has it all: magic, witches, a need for revenge, and suspense. Well worth the 99p I paid for it So, if you’re in the mood for an entertaining quick read, do yourself a favour and buy this book!”
