I’m in an aww state at the moment. I just put my little one down for a nap and sneaked in a few minutes of reading before taking care of the mess in the kitchen (it’s still there *sigh*) and opened Blessing and Light by Kasia Bacon – yes, Ms Bacon this week too. Last week I read A Late Bite to Eat.
Blessing and Light is a 15-pages long story taking place during the Night of Winter Lights. Sæbastyn Hyago is watching his Captain work, happy to be there with him instead of being part of the celebrations, but then everything changes and Sæbastyn biggest fear threatens to come true.
For such a short story it’s packed with emotions, and I tiptoed out of the bedroom with a smile on my face. Blessing and Light is part of The Order series, and I haven’t read it, so they’re definitely going on my to-read list.
Blessing and Light is a free read so check it out if you’re curious!
It’s the Night of Winter Lights.
Heedless of the holiday, the Commander of the H’Aren fortress, Captain Torýn Torhdhar, seems to find his satisfaction in work.
Such occurrence hardly surprises his Orderly, Sæbastyn Hyago, even though the young Lieutenant has spent a silent, aching decade wishing his superior officer would pursue pleasure elsewhere—specifically in his arms. But as the evening continues, nothing about it meets Sæbastyn’s expectations. Will the Lieutenant see his secret desires realised, or his heart shattered?
This alternative winter holiday short, which is a standalone set in the Order Universe.
