Anwar Montan, an orphaned product of an illicit fourteenth-century love affair is exiled from an aristocratic family by a grandfather who wants him dead. He is an outsider, growing up facing hardships and fighting for acceptance at a school for troubadours. Armed with no more than a thirst for knowledge of the world and a curiosity about his place in it, he enlists in his mentor’s pursuit of the most important challenge of his young life – to help uncover evidence of a nefarious cabal’s plot to oust Queen Joanna I. Anwar learns to interpret the puzzles and patterns in the world and becomes an elite code-breaker with help from his mentor, archivist Master Henri Gérard, who has been robbed of his own family’s legacy by the conspirators. Anwar and Gérard’s mission is abruptly interrupted when Anwar is unjustly conscripted into an indenture with the mercenary brigade of the leader of the cabal, Enis Charbonneau. Anwar finds love with Charbonneau’s private nurse while convalescing, but shortly after finding this hope for a life worth living, Gérard is murdered by the cabal. Anwar is framed, forcing him to escape and leave behind the woman he loves in order to avenge Gerard’s killing. He must outwit the conspirators before they have murdered everyone else that he loves and dethroned the Queen.
THE CHRONICLES OF TALA – BOOK 1
Glorhelm, the exiled elven prince; Carant, the wry druid; Rozeka, the mysterious witch; and Anagil, the dour dwarf. Unlikely travelling companions, they are nonetheless thrown together through various quirks of fate, and when they stumble upon news of a strange quest, at first it seems to be nothing more than another way to make a living. Along with some new companions – a priest, a princess and a thief – they set off in search of five precious and rare artefacts that will save the life of Princess Faro, sole heiress to the ancient throne of Lerwichamian. Of the Seven Magic Kingdoms of Tala, a land now ravaged by the consequences of a violent and deadly war, only Lerwichamian now remains; but it is diminished, the line of Kings broken, and under the rule of the amoral Baron Fro.
As the party journey through Tala, subtle clues begin to emerge that embroil the party in a tale far more important and desperate than they could have realised. Why has Kajan Thar, the Baron’s Chief of Staff, chosen a greenhorn such as Baranil the inexperienced priest to accompany them? Why has the Baron not been seen in public for months? Who is this curious necromancer who has allegedly ensnared the Princess in her sleeping state? Can they really trust the seemingly kindly Payadanian, head of the Church of Haltor? And then there are the secrets held deep inside the members of the party themselves…
