Pages: 384

Genre: Fantasy

A kingdom in danger. A prophecy that will change everything. But will
they understand it in time? The old world is gone, and barely even
histories remain. But something from that time is returning. The closing
lines of a farewell poem, written centuries ago by the last great king
of the age to his slain wife, might be more than just a poem:

The world and all its light shall fade,

I’ll stay with her beneath the shade

And wait until the world’s remade…

Join us in this epic fantasy adventure as three friends plunge into
the great mystery of their age, twelve centuries in the making. A
mysterious fog blankets the forest just outside the sleepy town of
Suriya. A dark plot unfolds as Durian and his friends discover ties
between a strange wanderer and the warlike barbarian kingdom far to the
north. Are the mysterious things happening in the forest a prelude to
invasion? What happens next will propel Durian and his curious friends
into the middle of the oldest riddle in the history of their kingdom, a
dozen centuries old.

Cavanah, the fairest slain;
Who met
her last and final day
When all

Now bitter

Benjamin Mester is native of San Diego but can often be found
wandering the woods of northern Minnesota.  He fell in love with
language at an early age – the eloquence of poetry or the grandeur of an
epic story.  Fantasy is his favorite genre, crafting new and magical
places of heroism and adventure.  When he isn’t writing, he’s often
taking long walks through nature or wondering about his place in the
wide world.

Benjamin is the author of The Banished Lands series.
