The Black Tide Trilogy
This is a three-part fantasy series set in the kingdom of Dhuggerham and the Nagessan Empire, following the adventures of our heroes, Mark and Leaman.
Book One - The Maw of the Moon
The adventure starts in the city of Dulleth where Mark, a young wagon captain, lives. He enjoys his work; driving around the kingdom, buying and selling goods and sharing the profits with his employer,
Barl. He feels he has spent his whole life sidestepping danger, but it's an ability that deserts him the day he meets Leaman. There is something about the tall Veltai warrior that Mark feels drawn to, something he can't quite put a name to.
When he agrees to drive a wagonload of Veltai woman and children north to their home in the Given Mountains, he imagines it will be just another job. When the Veltai are arrested at the city gates, Mark must either leave the group to their fate, or help them. His decision has danger riding roughshod right over him. He becomes a hunted fugitive, fighting friends and foe alike.
It's a journey of discovery, and one where his sixth sense for trouble is tested at every turn. With Leaman at his side, he battles overwhelming odds to prevent a power-mad sorcerer from bringing back the hidden gods, gone for many years. For most men that would be excitement enough for several lifetimes. Unfortunately for Mark, this is just the beginning.
