Book One of the Fallen Lands Trilogy
With a single, desperate cut of the knife, naïve and reckless Cat Calhoun finds himself forced into an unfamiliar landscape of intrigue and danger. Caught between a murderous giant and a hardly helpless pirate girl, Cat's split second decision leaves him adrift in the Fallen Land's shadowy world of sea-robbers, madmen and cutthroats--a place where politics and prophecies collide. Now, the further he travels from the mundane comforts of home, the deeper the mystery grows around the untested farm boy and the Shadow staining the land from Sturmgard to the Summer Coast and beyond. The Fallen Lands Trilogy can be described as a coming-of-age story where love and loss shape characters and destinies. Unique to this series is the role of the Archtypes. In the books' mythology, the Archtypes are the physical embodiment of the familiar elements driving modern narratives. The Hero, Shadow, Oracle and Trickster are all at play, struggling to understand their purpose and place, while caught between free will and pre-destination.
