Exiled from his homeland, never to return, Brandyé Dui-Erâth finds himself lost in the wilderness on the coast of a black sea, with the influence of Darkness closing in around him. Here, he learns the true meaning of solitude, and begins to discover that he indeed has an influence on the world that is beyond the natural.
Soon, he finds he is not alone in the greater lands of Thaeìn, and is captured and taken in by the Cosari, a seafaring nation whose delight is in battle, glory and death. Thus begins a new chapter in Brandyé’s life, one that will lead him from the rocky islands of Cosar through the dangerous forests of the Trestaé Mountains, and ultimately to the greatest kingdom of men in all of Erâth.
Along the way he discovers old friends and new enemies, and learns ever more about the world of Erâth, its history and its future, and the role he has to play in its fate.
About the Author
Raised between the soaring peaks of the Swiss alps and the dark industrialism of northern England, beauty and darkness have been twin influences on his creativity since an early age. Throughout his life, he has expressed this through music, art and literature, delving deep into the darkest parts of human nature, and finding the elegance therein. He met his wife in England, even though she grew up in New Jersey. A dedicated scientist, she makes sure that he brushes his teeth and cleans the dishes even when he wants to write. Together they have an eleven-year-old son. Now residing in northern New Jersey, he still enjoys walking in the woods and taking pictures, and sometimes still writes music—when he's not absorbed in the world of Erâth.
