Songs of the Amaranthine is a collection of short stories set in Forthright’s Amaranthine universe. Before the Emergence, the clans were nothing more than whispers and mysteries and legends and lore. But every so often—in out-of-the-way places or shockingly close to home—an unsuspecting person stumbled into a fateful encounter with someone who was decidedly other. An eclectic collection, spanning continents and centuries. Tales of adventure, discovery, friendship, rescue, belonging, and love. Each short story stands alone and can be read in any order.
One sister, a pure light that beckons,
the other, a fierce light that burns.
Followed by Thunder. Fira and her sister are chased out of another village. Fleeing on foot across the empty moors, they’re caught by a storm that roars like the monsters ever in pursuit. But the wind changes and the thundering brings a stampede of defenders who carry them off to a secret place. Where mares dance and rabbits mine. Where the lost clans hid a lasting treasure. Where the girls’ curse is considered a blessing.

- This short story should start showing up on Goodreads and Amazon very soon, so you’ll be able to shelve and pre-order it.
- Yes, it will be available on other platforms as well. (And yes, we’re working on getting Marked by Stars added to them, as well.)
- Yes, this story will eventually be in print. Once I have enough, I’ll collect four short stories into an anthology … an illustrated anthology. (Lookit me, startin’ rumors!)
- You can ask me stuff about the story (it never hurts to ask), but I usually don’t say much. I’m a big fan of letting my stories speak for themselves. ::twinkle::
