The Transformation of Gerick Bare-Skin

A Novella by

The lands of Nimm are threatened by bestial marauders. In the borderlands of Clan Thyrrim where the harshest incursions are happening, only the shape-shifting warriors of that clan can keep their family freeholds safe. In their werebear forms, these doughty fighters are a terrible force in battle.

But Gerick, a young warrior and the headman's own son, has a problem: of those thought to have the were-gift, only he cannot change shapes. When his fellows fall before enemy magic, it is up to Gerick to protect their home and loved ones. But what can one shape-shifter do, when he cannot leave the form of a man?

"The Transformation of Gerick Bare-Skin" is set in the Duchy of Nimm, a northern, forested land that plays a prominent role in the author's earlier fantasy novel, The Truthsayer's Apprentice. This short story is the first tale to expand the Loregiver Series story arc in a decade. In addition, the marauders featured here were first introduced in Christian's novel Kar Kalim; this is their first appearance in related fiction. This story will be a welcome read for fans of Christian's novels, and for readers who enjoy heroic fantasy
