What's new with Shona Husk



Free novella

An Elemental Tail is free at the moment.

Four hundred years ago, Nik was tricked by his lover and left stranded as a powerless, but immortal, human. Now he craves only one thing: to reclaim the book that was once his tail and become a water Elemental again. Unfortunately, he can only locate the book when someone touches the pages. This time he won't be left high and dry.

Isla is left a beautiful leather-bound book in her great-aunt's will, perfect for using during her life drawing classes. However, she can't bring herself to mark the translucent pages until a compelling crimson-haired stranger strips for art.

Nik is torn. Years of enforced humanity have given him a conscience. Despite his best efforts at remaining a heartless water Elemental, he is failing. He is falling for Isla, who has no idea she holds the power of the oceans, and his heart, in her hands.

Her time in the mortal world is running out…
After fleeing Annwyn three centuries ago, Ella built a life in the mortal world making gowns for European royalty and playing in mortal intrigues.

He’s been dreaming of the coming battle all his life…
Isaac Norton is a returned soldier. Now home, he’s restless and his recurring dream is becoming more frequent: he’s fighting on a snow-covered field stained with blue blood. When he sees Ella, he knows she isn’t human. And she knows what he is, a changeling.

Excerpt:

An Elemental Tail
Chapter 1
Nik dug his toes into the grit that passed for sand on this miserable island called England. The waves smacked his rolled-up jeans and sucked at his feet, as if the sea could draw him in and pull him home. If it were that easy, he wouldn’t still be trapped in a human body. He sighed through clenched teeth. Four hundred years of treading land and breathing air, and he still missed the ocean.

The gray sea swirled around his ankles, and he couldn’t feel it. Oh, it was cold and wet like water should be, but he couldn’t feel it. The pulse of the waves no longer echoed in his blood. The pull of a hurricane half a world away now passed without his knowing. Currents swept across the globe, but he didn’t revel in the eddy of power. He felt nothing from the water. He closed his eyes and inhaled the damp-salty scent of the sea, the element he had once been.

The wind caressed his cheek, tugging on his crimson hair until the strands whipped around like seaweed in a storm. Above him the heavy clouds promised rain. No, too cold for rain. Sleet. Except for him, the beach was deserted. Sensible people hid from the wild whims of the elements. But Nik had been called to the shore by the alien joy and wonder flooding his veins. Someone had touched the flesh that had once been his tail.

Without his tail he was powerless, an immortal human, rejected by water. This time he wouldn’t fail. He would reclaim the book made from his body and be whole. Elemental. His eyes snapped open, fixed on a point in the distance too far for him to see.

Once he would have crossed the distance as a mer with a flick of his tail, or as water, one with the Atlantic Ocean, depending on his mood. Now he would have to fly to America. Nik shuddered, but not from the cold. He raised his eyes to the clouds, and the wind giggled at his dilemma. Air and water didn’t mix. Nik glanced back over the choppy sea. A ship would take too long; it might be years before he got another chance at finding the book. He waded back to the shore with leaden legs. He had a plane to catch.
