Sellsword and the Reindeer is not a book. It is a Christmas Calendar with twenty-four chapters, one for each night of December, culminating with the last story and conclusion of the complete tale on Christmas Eve, the night Greenlanders celebrate Christmas.
Inspired by the Scandinavian and Greenlandic Christmas Calendar tradition, this Jack Londonesque story is intended to be read through the long, dark days and nights of December, transporting the reader to the far north of Greenland where the sun has already set, and the only light is from the moon reflecting on the sea ice and snow, and the Northern Lights carpeting the black night sky.
Sellsword and the Reindeer features David Maratse, the quiet, simple, but resourceful constable who first appeared in The Ice Star and Seven Graves, One Winter. The tale told in Sellsword and the Reindeer is set prior to these books, as we catch up with Maratse early in his career as he struggles to balance his sense of duty with the wild call of Greenland.
If you like adventurous tales with a criminal twist set in remote and challenging locations, then Sellsword and the Reindeer is for you.
Please remember, Sellsword and the Reindeer is not a book. For Maratse’s sake, don’t read ahead, pace yourself, and maybe, just maybe, all will be resolved by Christmas.
Pick up Sellsword and the Reindeer and spend Christmas with Maratse this December!
