The Neekin Chronicles

by D.K. Latta

Read about the author here.

A blend of sword & sorcery, sensuality, and horror.

"Neekin...is an addiction quickly succumbed to..." ~
Daniel E. Blackston - reviewer and editor (Pitch-Black Publishing)

Neekin is a beautiful -- but fierce -- young warrior fired by wanderlust, roaming through the wild kingdoms and untamed jungles of pre-history, her feral nature often at odds with the "civilized" lands through which she sometimes travels. Firey-tempered and sensual, Neekin is a pulp-style heroine...for today!

These stories are suggested for mature readers.
