On the world of Allden, life...has become cruel.

The encroaching desert swallows whole cities.
The anarchists and the lawless wander the wastes.
Nothing is sacred and no one is truly safe.

For this reason, the Nomads were created.

Fantastic wooden sailing ships and their crews that ply the currents above the barren lands, bringing order from chaos, hope from despair...

Yet even they are powerless to stop the threat that looms before them all...a portent of doom that will shake the very foundation of the world and its people...

The sun is collapsing.

Time is running out. Who, if any, will survive?

About the Author

David Buchannan has been writing short stories in the science fiction and fantasy genres for over thirty years. His first novel, entitled Do the Gods Weep As Well?, was published in 2000 under the name, "J. David Watson", and spent two weeks on the Forbes Book Club recommended reading list. It is available for purchase online in both trade paperback and e-book formats.

His current work started quite literally from a dream that he had many years ago. In it, he was piloting what would become the sandships of the world of Allden, in which the Pridewar universe is set. His hand was resting upon the planchette, as in this book, and he guided it across a vast desert through manipulating it forward and back, and side-to-side. While not mentally connected to the vessel in the way that the Navigators are, a sudden remembrance of this dream became the catalyst that began this series.

David has stated openly that it felt more as if he were "channeling" the book, rather than merely writing it. He began with absolutely no idea of plot or vision, nor character definition or even the remotest idea where he would take the story. "It just sort of evolved," he said. "It was more like I was transcribing what someone else was telling me."

David's other interests and occupations include sailing (for which he is a certified instructor), children's science education (with emphasis on watershed ecology and conservation), gourmet cooking, photography, videography, digital art, drawing, and musical composition and recording.

He lives now upon the waters of San Francisco Bay aboard a 32-foot sailboat called "Serenity" with his wife, Kellia, an investigative journalist and author in her own right, and one supremely hyperactive cat named Zoey.
