Title: Just off the Path
Author: Weston Sullivan
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing: Fire Light
Release Date: Sept 5 2017
Hansel never asked to be a hero. He never wanted to fall in love with Rapunzel, Queen of the East. He didn’t ask to be raised by Gothel the Wretch, and he certainly never wanted to be credited for her arrest. But more than any of that, Hansel never wanted to lie: but he did. He lied about everything. He thought that he was done with it all when he and his sister Gretel retreated into the woods to reclaim their land, but he should have known better.
Years later, Rapunzel’s guards knock at his door, and they say the words he hoped that he would never hear: Gothel has escaped. As he and Gretel take refuge inside Rapunzel’s castle in the eastern capitol of Hildebrand, Hansel is thrust back into everything he never wanted in the first place: his lies, his legend, and his lust. In the wake of it all, he knows that Gothel has escaped to finish what she started. She is out to make sure that the Sleeping Beauty never wakes, and that Grimm suffocates under her blanket of thorn and vine. In order to find Gothel and save the kingdom, Hansel and Gretel must look for fact in a land of fairy-tale by following a trail of grisly murders, a girl in a red cape, and a powerful little man who can’t stand the sound of his own name.
As they search for answers, Hansel finds that he isn’t the only liar in Grimm, and that there may be a traitor among them of royal proportion.
Pre-Order Price $2.99 Regular Price $4.99

Hansel could have thought about Rapunzel the rest of the way into the city, but his reverie was abruptly interrupted when Gretel recoiled and grabbed onto his arm in fright. Ahead were three horses, tied to a thick tree trunk, picking at what was left of the grass beneath them while their riders kneeled on the ground beside them, examining something? Bystanders from the village just outside Hildebrand crowded around the horsemen, who were dressed similarly to Klaus, horrified by the sight on the ground.
The horses were oblivious to their surroundings. All they knew was that there, the spot to which they were bound, lacked the hay they needed to survive. Hansel didn’t want to look down as they passed the scene. For the first few seconds, he looked at the horses, and then he looked at the people. People knew murder when they saw it, horses didn’t. He thought that must have been the reason why they all looked terrified, while the horses simply looked hungry. It wasn’t that the horses were stupid, but murder didn’t exist in the horse world. Horses knew what hay was and what wasn’t, who could get close to them and who couldn’t, and when they were or weren’t tied up. He envied that about them—they didn’t have to worry about murder or winter. They simply existed in a world where awful things happened.
The only reason Hansel looked at the body was to ensure that it wasn’t Ceara. It wasn’t. A middle-aged man with a white shirt turned red was lying on his back. According to the man, death wasn’t as peaceful as Hansel thought. His face was twisted into a horrid U-shape, his mouth wide open as if he’d died while screaming. His skin was splotched in black-blue bruises near the stab wounds, and his intestines poked out from a thought back to his cottage. Their food supply consisted mostly of cucumbers that were waiting to be pickled so that they would last the winter. His stomach growled. He could practically smell the roasted venison being cooked below. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d had seasoned meat.
