THE SERPENT OF THE LAKES

THE SERPENT OF THE LAKES


MEL ODOM


HERE’S THE WORD FROM MEL ABOUT HIS NEW STORY . . .


I just posted a 10,000 word novella on Amazon. The story is an American Indian fantasy that involves a young brave fighting a monster for the return of his lover. There's a bit of history in the story, but it's mostly fun and a lot of action. I really enjoyed getting to write animal spirits as characters.

THE SERPENT OF THE LAKES


When Taregan's Algonquin village is attacked and left destroyed by a rival tribe, the young brave takes up the hunt for his missing love Kaliska. She has been taken by the Serpent of the Lakes, a monster that has preyed on the lake tribes with impunity.


Enlisting the help of the Three Sisters, magical beings that watch over the People, Taregan pursues Kaliska. He's joined by Beaver, Turtle, and Bear, three spirit guides with powerful abilities.


To find and rescue the woman he loves, Taregan must venture to the bottom of the deep lake and face the monster in the dwelling he has constructed from the bones of his past victims.
