The Sword of the Guardian must be forged of perfection.
Kantal is a fighter, and he sings the warrior song. He has had to. Born with nothing more than a girl's name, he has endured a life of torment. But large obstacles do not imply small expectations. Quite the opposite in fact.
And his country has long suffered too, investing five hundred fruitless years in trying to retake rich lands that were stolen by invaders from the sea. But that may be about to change. Kantal is destined to become guardian of the crown.
Because Kantal has a talent, and he has a plan. Now all he needs is to be heard. Can he finally ride the tide of his hard fought reputation, and succeed where all others have failed? Can he finally sing his warrior song?
More on this fictional sword fantasy for boys, girls, or young adults of any age.
This is a novella and the prequel in a YA Sword and Sorcery series: The Age of Ku. It consists of a story in a story, so it is perhaps a little unorthodox. The inner story is the story of Kantal's childhood, and his path to learning the warrior song. The outer story covers his time as guardian of the crown, and acts as a prequel to another series. I really enjoyed exploring Kantal, and I hope you do too!
This book will be perfect for anyone who enjoyed:
- Kel Kade's Kings's Dark Tidings series;
- Duncan M. Hamilton's Wolf of the North series; or
- Philip C. Quaintrell's Echoes of Fates series.
