Background Notes:

From inception to completion, this story took less than a month to finish, of which I am rather proud. The initial concept behind it was to act as a kind of prequel to Tears of the Mountain, the novel currently being worked on, and also to function something like a pilot to the time period of the setting, to hopefully gauge interest in it.

The story takes place prior to the events of Tombs of the Tagosa Kings and Tears of the Mountain and explains how Halir went from being a trooper in the Hussars to being a professor.
