Beyond Thundering Waters

A Modern Norwegian Folktale

by Georgina Jeffery

A dark fairy tale in a modern Norwegian setting. Ida, a young girl grieving the loss of her mother, is wandering in the snowy wilderness when she meets the mysterious Maja - a huldra from myth and legend. Taking comfort in Maja's kind arms, Ida makes a desperate wish for her family to be whole again... and gets far more than she bargained for.

With the huldra's meddling, Ida finds her Pappa's life is suddenly at stake. To save him, she must battle against the wild valley she calls home and find the strength to confront the huldra before time runs out.

This is a standalone short story of about 8,700 words, and is the first installment in the Dark Folklore series.
