Do you love to read but do not have the time to read a very long novel? Do you enjoy reading a series that always is more enticing the longer you read it? Then you’ll love Rooksbridge. Rooksbridge is a fantasy series, a serial series. It is a fantasy story without the agony of holding a thousand page hard-bound book that is impossible to carry.
Rooksbridge is a chapbook series that is available online at rooksbridge(dot)com. The installments are of the future, online. They are downloadable as various files: PDF or mp3. These stories are still yet to go online, meaning, there are additions to the tale every month. However, one can follow the author, Josh Roby, on an RSS feed or on podcast previews.
As of right now, Rooksbridge has six installments.
Roosbridge starts with the first chapter, “Dirty Work”. “Dirty Work” introduces the town Guilford and Dame Sophia, a leading lady in a caravan passing through the town. She has natural authority over the group.
The second chapter is entitled “Getting By”. In this segment, royalty is introduced, making it clear that in this series there will be serfdom.
“The Divide” is third in this series of installments. This chapter takes place in a river, where the men at hard labor discover that the island in the river is not one at all, an interesting, intriguing way of maintaining power.
“Ravens, Rooks, and Crows” is next, an introduction of a mysterious rider who turns out to be Dame Sophia’s brother. He is on a mission to, what he believes, will help her, but Dame Sophia knows better. Her brother’s innocence of thought is revealed through her cold, accurate, logic.
“Where there is Smoke”, there is another installment. The Baroness Bramwood is another powerful lady who is introduced in this chapter.
Finally, “Goodwill, Bad Blood” is the last segment of this series currently out. Dame Sophia’s troupe travels to another town named Rudwell.
This series holds much promise to be a great epic. I await the next chapter next month.
