Of Ghosts and Storms, a novella set in the universe of Mancinelli’s epic fantasy series A Hallow of Talons and Tears. A fantasy with horror undertones, LGBT+ representation, and French-inspired lore.

Following the execution of his mother, Ghost becomes a servant in his own house. Zander Rochelac, his father and Lord of Noirmont, sees him as nothing but a curse carried by Ghost’s given name. Isolated from the rest of the world, Ghost is close only to his half-sister, Loveleen, heiress to Noirmont. Until he gets to know her custodian, Favian Belmont, better.

“You are but a specter.”

The story of how Ghost became who he was, uncovered Noirmont’s secrets, befriended Larcel. And died.

Note: This novella can’t be read without reading The Empress of Beasts and Mist first.
