Book launch - Wings of the Overlord - 9 September 2014

Advance notice for

9 September 2014 – book launch of the first in the series,

Chronicles of Floreskand

Wings of the Overlord

Morton Faulkner

 Floreskand, where myth, mystery and magic reign. The sky above the city of Lornwater darkens as thousands of red tellars, the magnificent birds of the Overlord, wing their way towards Arisa.

Ulran discovers he must get to Arisa within seventy days and unlock the secret of the scheduled rites. He is joined in his quest by the ascetic Cobrora Fhord, who harbours a secret or two, and also the mighty warrior Courdour Alomar, who has his own reasons for going to Arisa. They learn more about each other -- whether it's the strange link Ulran has with the red tellar Scalrin, the lost love of Alomar, or the superstitious heart of Cobrora.

Plagued by assassins, forces of nature and magic, they cross the plains of Floreskand, combat Baronculer hordes, scale snow-clad Sonalume Mountains and penetrate the dark heart of Arisa. Here they uncover truth, evil and find pain and death.
Advance reviews:

 A fast-paced fantasy adventure as an innkeeper, a city dweller full of surprises, and an immortal who longs to die, join forces in a race against time. Their quest is to save the red tellars, the giant birds who are the wings of the overlord.

Along the way even the weather becomes a powerful adversary and the three are tested almost beyond endurance. Tensions and evocative language keep the reader turning the pages to the very end!
