It’s taken longer than it should have but, finally, it’s here: A Taste of Steel, the third book in the Hollow series is finished and ready to purchase.
In this book Drome gets caught up in a mutiny against the queen of Kyro – the country neighbouring Glaskwall – and is soon up to his neck in hot water (literally!), threats, plots, executions, revenge, murder and a host of other nasty business.
It’s not that he wants to be involved, but he just can’t help rubbing people up the wrong way.
What a shame he boasts to the leader of the mutineers about how much steel there is in his village. It’s not as though he didn’t know that metal is scarce in Hollow… but sometimes his mouth says things before his brain catches up.
He’d better hope that Neve can help out, because if she can’t save his skin then no one can.
As for his village, Amblesby, with three armies on its doorstep, all there because of a slip of his tongue and all wanting the precious steel lying around, what chance of survival do the villagers have?
