Just when things slip beyond Tenet's control, Ambush!
Tenet, cursed with seeing The Truth of Things, meets Timothy Hammer, reporting for New Dawn magazine, 2001, Bakersfield, California. Questions arise about the Shadow People, those who have existed among us since shortly after the Fall of Man, as detailed in chapter three of Genesis, as you already may know.
Young Timothy is stunned to hear that a faction among these mysterious beings are actually seeking revenge upon him, personally, because of actions taken by his own ancient ancestors, the Sons of Hamor. Tenet draws Sicol, his silvered katana blade from Beyond, and wades into battle as prepared as he can be for such confrontation.
As they say, if things are going well, it's entirely possible you're walking into an ambush.
Fast-paced, mysterious as every Tenet's Tale has been thus far, Ambush kept me on the edge of my seat and tense for the entire story. I can't fault this story for anything other than being so short and leaving me wanting more. Definitely, and highly, recommended.
