The Doom of Eldrid Cole : An Elmoryn Story
"I came to this town to kill my brother. Instead, I find myself weeping over his grave." Eldrid Cole is a man who hunts what other men fear. In a land where the dead don't rest, there are few surprises left for him. But when a mysterious horror begins preying on the villagers of the northern coast, the carnage is worse than anything Eldrid has ever seen. Determined to put an end to this murderous rampage, Eldrid pursues the nameless thing in a bitter race from one shattered town to the next. As Eldrid draws ever closer to his goal, the ghosts of his past loom large. Can he overcome the pain and regret of his memories and face this most terrible foe? Or will he succumb to both and be lost to death or madness? Includes a special preview of Alan MacRaffen's novel: Carnival of Time. The Doom of Eldrid Cole is set in author Chris Philbrook's world of Elmoryn: a vast dark fantasy playground where the spirits are ever present, and the dead ever hungry.
