Frank Penny and the Last Black Stag
by Jeremy Elson
Book 3 in the Frank Penny series.
They’d never catch her.
She’d skirted the edge of the pine forests and the grey empty foothills of the Longshadow Mountains to keep them off her tail, and now the oppressive, cheerless backstreets of Alsha Kar were a full day’s ride behind her as she neared the approach to her solitary escape route – the narrow bridge that spanned the River Jixx at the deep gorge of Deadman’s Scar. From there the border beckoned, calling her safely beyond their grasp, never to return. They’d never catch her.
Power is not for the weak or faint-hearted.
If Frank, Cas, Gabby and Anya want to find the next two guardians of the Simbrian and keep them safe, they need to journey across the dangerous borderlands and into the dark and shadowy world of Kzarlac, sworn enemy of Byeland.
Ruled by the fearsome Etamin Dahke, Kzarlac is no place for four naïve teenagers. Keen wits and a large helping of luck are no guarantee they will succeed and return safely.
Driven by their desire to protect the delicate peace that has existed since the time of Kester, their quest is about to take a deadly turn, and the exposure of an unconceivable secret may make Frank regret ever having started.
Frank Penny and the Last Black Stag sees the story take a darker turn as Frank and his friends find themselves more deeply embroiled. They also uncover some surprising and shocking truths that so far have been kept secret.
