A fierce host rides across the winter sky at night
In wild pursuit of whoever crosses their path
Peals of thunder follow the horses as they gallop through the clouds
Fire flashing from their hooves
The baying of the hounds echoes across the sky
Their sharp teeth glinting in the light of the moon
The Huntsman blows his horn, and the Fae ride behind him
Their faces both beautiful and terrible to behold
When the nights are long and the winter winds howl, stay inside
Lest you cross the path of the Hunt...and become their prey
The Wild Hunt contains thirteen stories based on the wide and varied folklore of the Wild Hunt. In some tales, the leader of the hunt is Odin; in others it’s King Arthur, Herodias, or Herne the Hunter. Sometimes the riders are Fae; sometimes they are specters, or skeletons, or strange beasts never before seen by mortal eyes.
But no matter who the hunters are, you definitely don’t want to be the one they’re after...
Let the Wild Hunt begin!
