Our journey begins in a parallel world, deep in the vast Forest of Norrast. Soon the tribal people living there are joined by a Stranger from the world we know, a Yorkshire lad from Queen Anne's England. From the Norrung capital of Vorthall this unlikely youth and his companions set forth on a classic quest to save their world from a demon. They are joined by a wolf, a sorceress, a blustering aristocrat, some thieves, and a princess.
My greatest joys in writing come from rich texture, relationships, and character. Nothing is written without topographical maps and genealogy charts that help me visualize a world of imagination. Only a few of those make it into the text but they all underlie a saga that spans centuries. I hope readers will enjoy this adventure.
With a little luck the first volume will be available in about a week and I hope to publish the second volume before Christmas.
