Krella the Red is wagering some of the silver she earned on her last posting, and looks to have quite a pot in the corner of the tavern. When the dice come up in her favor, one of the losers gets violent. He nearly loses a hand for it, and Krella catches a young musician trying to sneak off with some of her money. Rather than cut him, though, she takes him up to her room to make him pay off the debt he incurred.
Cross decides to take on the fantasy genre, combining the eroticism of the Amazon with traditional sword and sorcery elements. Krella the Red is a definite throwback to characters like Red Sonya and Conan the Barbarian, and while we see her in plenty of action, there’s a lot left to the imagination. Who is she really? Where does she come from? And what awaits her when she next picks up her sword?
