Overview

The Travalaithi Empire is in a state of unrest, and the sleepy frontier town of Widowvale was meant to be a refuge far from the looming civil war. But when the local militia’s hunt for a lowly poacher turns up a mysterious child at the heart of an unreliable prophecy, the town’s fortunes are transformed forever, and the deadly troubles of the outside world are brought home for the harvest.

Coming of age in this uneasy world was hard enough as a simple farmer. But when Aewyn’s heroic destiny comes crashing home, and her ancient mentor stands accused of treason, the supposed Chosen One faces a choice of her own: will she fulfill the destiny she’s been given—or sacrifice it all to save her town and her friends?

This moving and poignant “small-town epic” is Cynehelm Press’s first book, and the first entry in its flagship fantasy series, the Travalaith Saga.
