I'm not a big big fan of fantasy, but I do like a little gore, and this story was really a mix of fantasy, horror, and gore.
A king covets power, so he sends an expedition to an island that his counselors sais had power, but when everyone gets there, they're attacked by monsters, some of the people turn into monsters, and their ship gets destroyed. Even the sun stops coming up, so the main warrior, Jorunhaal (if I spelled it right) and the wizard Wilheim trek underneath the island through some ruins or something, really just trying to find a way off the island.
In a way, there really isn't much to the story. It's basically a massacre, and the characters try to stay alive, but wha was cool, what I did like was just how different each character was and in the span of just a short story. Overall it wasn't bad.
