9781419691744: In The Shadow of Mountains: The Return of the Sixpack

Slide-Rule had been their strategist. She had taken the beaten armies of Falonbeck to victory over the Sullenfeld Hordes and now even the Dragon Prince of Halafalon wouldn't stand in her way. And if she could keep Sir John L'Crue on side, what she wanted she would get. Bus-Pass was one of their best fighters. She was a thief who made an art out of her trade. But her frequent confrontations with the Sheriff of Jasanta had instilled an admiration that went way beyond mere professional competition. Chalk-Dust was their scout. Thoughtful and methodical, she could find anything anywhere. But what she had stolen from the hidden tomb of Edred the Mighty would have to be returned before the Sullenfeld Hordes caught and skinned her to get it back. Blue-Tack was their leader. Strong, intelligent, and a fierce fighter, she had only one true enemy, an enemy who had taken away the only thing she cherished. And she lived only for the day when she would finally get even. Gym-Slip was the thorn in their side. Always full of the joys of life, she was a trickster, a comedienne who found fun in everything they did. And what she told Bus-Pass about the Sheriff was just low-down dirty rotten. Buy-Row was their biographer. Quiet and shy, she was a romantic book worm. She read everything she could find about lost cities and hidden tombs. And what she learned she told Chalk-Dust to find. They had spent a lifetime together on Ellerkan. It had been a lifetime of adventure, robbery, mayhem and sex whenever they could get it. Now, after twenty-eight years came their reunion. The flesh may have been weak, but the spirit was still willing, and what happened was what always happened when the Sixpack were around -all Hell let loose. And into all this came Johnson Fold. He was only interested in a little horse trading. Ellerkan was just the sort of backwards planet where his skills and artistry could be most fruitful. And as he often said to his partner, Sinita Khan, "What could possibly go wrong?"

From the Author:

The Return of the Sixpack is the second part of a two part story under the overall title of In the Shadow of Mountains. The first book, The Lost Girls, introduces the main characters and places, setting up the world they now live in and the events that forge their futures. The Return of the Sixpack deals with the girls when they are all grown up and in their forties, and although it is a sequel, it can be read independently of the first book. Now the girls are fully fledged women and warrior thieves. The adventures they have had, and continue to have, are rich, violent and exciting. There are also some humorous moments and characters in the stories as counter points to the battles, witches and feuding Knights. All this is mixed in with hard science-fiction giving the background, characters and events a more firmer footing in reality. I like things in my stories to work for justifiable reasons, but I don't give everything away too easily.

In this story the girls have grown up to be badder than ever. Robbing tombs might be fun, but having an angry witch and the entire Sullenfeld Hordes trying to skin you can be a downer. Mind you, bumping into the General you once went to school with could be worse...

About the Author:

I was born in Manchester in the North West of England in 1957. Although I have moved around a bit, Manchester is still both my physical and spiritual home. I am a Northerner. I am also married to Rosanna, and have been now for twenty-one years. I have an imagination that began when I was very young and never waned. I also like reading and so it was no surprise I suppose when I started writing. Because I am an unknown who has never been picked up by either an Agent or mainstream Publisher, I am a bit of a one man band. I even do my own covers and have become a bit of a digital artist as a result. I started writing when I was young and very bad. Now I am older and a lot better. My writing has improved too. I write science fiction, fantasy and romance stories. I also like to mix and match with romance in science fiction and so on. Female characters feature very prominently in my stories, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The reason for this is that I like women, a lot. In fact I adore everything about them, so it is no surprise that I enjoy reading stories where women feature prominently and that I should also enjoy writing stories where women feature prominently. It gives my stories a female bias, but I think they are better for it. I also like every character, even the monsters and villains, to have a realistic reason for being and doing what they do. Like reality, everything blurs. There is no right or wrong, just different viewpoints that lead to conflict. But I also like my out and out villains to be really bad. If you like science fiction, thrillers and romance stories with particular emphasis on leading female characters that are exciting and adventurous, look no further.

Descripción Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 648 pages. Slide-Rule had been their strategist. A planner, a plotter, devious, cunning and most probably the best military mind that anyone had ever seen on Ellerkan. She had taken the beaten armies of Falonbeck to victory over the Sullenfeld Hordes, and now even the Dragon Prince of Halafalon wouldnt stand in the way of her secret plan. She could have been the Queen of Falonbeck, but she wanted more. And if she could keep Sir John LCrue on side, what she wanted she would get. But it would be to Ellerkans great loss. Bus-Pass was one of their best fighters. Athletic, tireless, she was a thief who made an art out of her trade. Her long standing adversary was the Sheriff of Jasanta, and the frequent confrontations between them had instilled an admiration for one another that went way, way beyond mere professional competition. But while the Sheriff most definitely wanted to lay his hands on Bus-Pass, did she want to be caught Chalk-Dust was their scout. Thoughtful, skilled methodical, and with the ability to find anything anywhere. What she couldnt track just couldnt be tracked, and what she couldnt find just couldnt be found. The hidden tomb of Edred the Mighty was no different. But what she had stolen from there would have to be returned before the Sullenfeld Hordes caught and skinned her to get it back. Blue-Tack was their leader. Strong, intelligent, and like Bus-Pass, she was a skilled and fierce fighter. She had only one true enemy, an enemy who had taken away the only thing she cherished. And she lived only for the day when she would finally get even. Gym-Slip was the thorn in their side. Always full of the joys of life, she was a trickster, a comedienne, she found fun in everything they did. She had a lust for life that was only matched by her lust for men and robbery. If she couldnt steal it, she could lay it. And if anything went wrong, she was always at the heart of it. And what she told Bus-Pass about the Sheriff was just low-down dirty rotten. Buy-Row was their biographer. Quiet and almost shy, she was a romantic book worm. She read everything she could find about lost cities, hidden tombs and secret treasures. And what she learned she told Chalk-Dust to find. A constant scribbler, she wrote everything down. It had started as Soo-Kais journal, but now most of it was about the adventures of the Sixpack. They had spent a lifetime together on Ellerkan. It had been a lifetime of adventure, battles, war, robbery, mayhem and sex whenever they could get it. Now, after twenty-eight years came their reunion. The flesh may have been weak, but the spirit was still willing, and what happened was what always happened when the Sixpack were around all Hell let loose. And into all of this came Johnson Fold. He was only interested in a little horse trading. Ellerkan was just the sort of backwards planet where his skills and artistry could be most fruitful.
