In ASRAI’S CURSE, the third installment of the MYTHICAL MENAGERIE series, Ambrose Davids races against the clock to try and find a cure for the curse that is turning his veins to ice. He travels to Cardiff, land of daffodils and dragons, chasing a slim hope of finding a relic that could save his life.
Cardiff, capital of Wales, is a city close to my heart, since I spent two years living and working there many years ago. I wrote about my most recent visit on my travel blog here, and those of you who’ve read the novelette will recognise many of the sights Ambrose encountered in one memorable day I’ve had. It’s a city many neglect when they visit the United Kingdom, but it’s one of my favourite places on earth.
Here are a few of my favourite images from across the web showing scenes of Ambrose’s Cardiff to get your imagination going. Enjoy!
