Hydra’s Wake is an exciting Sci-Fi Fantasy thriller from breakout author Daniel Jones. Available Now, from Amazon in eBook, Paperback, Hardcover, and audiobook.
When dirigible pilot Rogue Whip crashes in the Deep Forest Province of Shell, he takes refuge in an old, abandoned mining camp. However, he quickly discovers the camp is the territory of the four-headed hydra—a rare but vicious creature that mercilessly hunts and kills its victims using its “wake,” an airborne toxin that causes hallucinations.
However, the hydra isn’t the only monster out for Rogue’s blood. The sadistic Lord Albert Richtoff has hired a mercenary to take out Rogue, confusing him with a spy by the same name. As his enemies fall under the influence of the hydra’s wake, Rogue rescues a beautiful but mute woman whom Lord Albert abused and left for dead. To rescue her and survive, the hunted now becomes the hunter. But can Rogue kill both the hydra and Albert, or will they destroy him first?
On the twin planet world of Yeraputs, hydras are considered to be the utmost apex predators. Their ability to regenerate two heads for each one lost is a legendary trait. However, their deadliest trait is a hunting mechanism called Hydra’s Wake. The wake is a hallucinogen they produce from their bodies to disorient prey. This allows the creatures to hunt and feed with ease, contributing to their enormous size. In Humans, the toxin causes paranormal and trans-dimensional effects. Those who come into contact with a hydra and somehow survive the experience are found in a comatose state. All attempts to study them in close proximity have failed for centuries. Attempting to do so is impossible without excessive risk to one’s life. They must be avoided at all costs. – Excerpt from the Bestiary of Yeraputs.
