Season 3, Episode 6 - The Blue Flame of Vengeance

Art by Gary Gianni

"The Lord hath led my feet into many strange places, and over many queer paths," said he sombrely. "Some were fair and many were foul; sometimes I seemed to wander without purpose or guidance but always when I sought deep I found fit reason therefor. And harkee, lad, forbye the fires of Hell there is no hotter fire than the blue flame of vengeance which burneth a man's heart night and day without rest until he quench it in blood."

"It hath been my duty in times past to ease various evil men of their lives - well, the Lord is my staff and my guide and methinks he hath delivered mine enemy into mine hands."

Hello fellow travelers on the path of vengeance! Today we present unto you the Solomon Kane tale, The Blue Flame of Vengeance. Join us for a swashbuckling tale of civilized savagery, smuggling, the knife fight to end all knife fights, and of course, that constant companion, Death! Luke finds beauty in the humanity of Solomon Kane while Josh and Jon wonder if there isn't something supernatural about the man.  

Tune in and also let us know what you think of the tale down in the comments!

Our next tale of savage and bloody vengeance will be "The Hills of the Dead" (Read it on Project Gutenberg Australia.)
