Chaya and the Spider Gem
By H.L. Rankin
“OOWww!” came the pained cry, and the white cloak reared up. It shook itself and the top of it resolved into a pair of pointed ears and a muzzle full of indignantly bristled whiskers.
“What in Lady’s name are you playing at?” growled the catman, rubbing at the tugged spot which Chaya had relinquished with alacrity.
Flattened against the opposite wall, the normally erudite juggler gaped, noting almost subconsciously the slitted pupils, the irritably twitching tail, and that the ‘fur mitts’ worn by the ‘man’ were in fact paws, belonging to...no, it couldn’t be... “Y-you’re a Freyani! A real one!”
After being rescued by Blancheur, a Freyani, Chaya and her new friend embark on a quest during which they battle thieves and soldiers, and encounter monks, trolls, dryads, and zombies as they set out to rescue the dwarf wizard, Malthor, from the Crimson Keep. But Chaya is caught and while she is left to face death as a sacrifice to evil, Blancheur races to assemble a force to free his friend and destroy the castle in which she is being held.
