Availability: Ready to download

Part 2 of a short story series set in mythic Viking Age Finland. Autumn has come and carries with it a sad note for Vierra's tribe. As gloomy as the tidings are, they bring forth the direction of Vierra's future — but only if she has the courage to fight for what she believes to be right. All this, in the midst of a cold autumn rain that is ready to put out all flames, both Part 2 of a short story series set in mythic Viking Age Finland. Autumn has come and carries with it a sad note for Vierra's tribe. As gloomy as the tidings are, they bring forth the direction of Vierra's future — but only if she has the courage to fight for what she believes to be right. All this, in the midst of a cold autumn rain that is ready to put out all flames, both internal and external. We welcome you to step into the dark northern forest. A place where no plow had touched the ground this far in the wilderness. Where the tall shapes of Viking ships struck terror and awe everywhere they set their sails. This was the age of dreams and legends, of powers now long forgotten. Tales carried by whispers in the cold wind in this dark land. Vierra is a young woman among the Kainu people, a tribe of age-old traditions and ways. Hers is the grim and solitary existence of a woman cursed with greatness and destiny. Can she break her path painted in stone and find a place for herself in her tribe and in her turmoil-filled world? Or will she become 'the Fargoer?' Fargoer is a series of fantasy short stories that draws its power from the harsh yet beautiful nature and folklore of Finland. The combination of fast-paced action and wonder for the long lost worlds of yesterday borrows heavily from pulp-literature of the 1930's... with a bit of human touch and drama in the middle.

    Autumn Flames is the second in Petteri Hannila's Fargoer series, and again I have no hesitation in suggesting five stars. Having read (and reviewed) the first part, Fargoer 1 - End of Innocence, a little while ago, it is a great pleasure to follow on with this sequel. Prospective readers should be aware that the Fargoer stories recount a series of closely related but discontinuous episodes. As I hoped on finishing the first, this story introduces us to other facets of the society. Autumn Flames i Autumn Flames is the second in Petteri Hannila's Fargoer series, and again I have no hesitation in suggesting five stars. Having read (and reviewed) the first part, Fargoer 1 - End of Innocence, a little while ago, it is a great pleasure to follow on with this sequel. Prospective readers should be aware that the Fargoer stories recount a series of closely related but discontinuous episodes. As I hoped on finishing the first, this story introduces us to other facets of the society. Autumn Flames is mostly set in and around the community settlement, and we are brought into contact with the ways in which life and death are recognised and respected. Both the splendour and the fragility of life in these northern forests is portrayed vividly by Petteri's writing. Another new major theme concerns the ways in which this community establishes its place in the wider world. We are introduced to other groups, who organise their society along quite different patterns. Coexistence is not always easy. The two women who were the central characters in the first story continue in focus here. Their relationship continually slides between cooperation and rivalry, but the sense is growing that their futures may well diverge rather than converge. As before, I find myself appreciating both the story itself and the mode of presentation. Story number 3 (Of Fire and Stone) awaits!

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Petteri Hannila.) Vierra rescues a strange man in the forest from a Turyan man who seems to want to kill him, and a new chieftain is chosen. This short story continues the story of Vierra and Aure from book 1, and shows how they have grown up and who they have become. 6 out of 10.
