Description: [edit] [history]

Like Hatchet, but with vampires, witches, and dragons... oh my!

Indigo 'Indi' Adams and her three friends venture into the wilderness for a few days of hiking fun. Indi hopes to capture a photo of the elusive phoenix, and she's determined nothing will stop her.

Not the fact that she's never been hiking before.

Not her deathly allergy to the sun.

Not even the possibility that she and her friends aren't the only ones tracking the phoenix...

But there are others who want their own shot at the bird, and they're willing to kill for it.

This is mostly a fun adventure story with some light horror and action scenes, and probably at least one literal cliffhanger.

For those who have read my other work, Spliced, this work here features some of the same characters but is an unrelated plot and is set earlier than the events in Spliced.

I'm expecting to do 2000 words a day on average and chapters should be about that length (give or take, not counting the prologue) so expect daily updates from here on out. It's probably going to end up more than 55,000 words but I expect to finish the thing by Christmas. Let the Challenge Begin!

BACK IN 5 MINS (NZ time): I'm going bush for a few days, so updates will be less frequent, just for about a week-ish. I've got a couple chapters prepared in advance so I've scheduled those to come out less frequently than usual while I'm away. I won't have internet so will reply to comments and do any edits when I return.

Chapters will be out 2:15am NZ time on the 30th Nov, and 6th and 8th December. Chapters will resume daily from the 11th December, same time, same place.

And don't worry, my adventures should be much calmer than the ones my characters are having, probably.
