From the author of The Longsword Chronicles, The Shi'ell, and The Six Concentrics, comes a new Fantasy series: A Newland Tale.
Yaran, a thoughtful and hardy young man from the small east lobe farming village of Bolsunder. His one goal: to rise above his humble beginnings, perhaps to find a wife, and through hard work and study become just special enough that when the time comes, his own children might have a better start in life than he had.
Alas... As his old teacher often said: Things happen, some we like, and some we don't. Fate has something special waiting for Yaran, and for those he'll meet along the way.
And chances are, he, and they, really won't like it.
