Midwinter At Bhisho
by Earl T. Roske
When the Hospitallers land on Abira, things don’t feel right. And it’s not just the constant, falling snow. Bhisho’s townsfolk are nervous. This makes the Hospitallers wary.
Then, thieves come in the night. But the thieves are citizens of another town in the valley. Their people are starving, too. Imara and her team are charged with escorting supplies, through the hard falling snow, to the other town.
The welcome here is more chilling than at Bhisho. Imara is certain more is going on than just a shortage of food. A passed note confirms her suspicions. Now, Imara has to warn the rest of her company, even if it costs the lives of her team.
Midwinter on Bhisho is the first story in the Seasons of War on Abira series. Follow Sgt Imara Fermo as she not only deals with her own demons but struggles to understand the layers of deceptions that drive the civil war on Abira.
