Book 1 of the Willden Trilogy.
Ryallon is a vast world surrounded by chaotic energies. Humans live on a few of the continents separated by massive oceans, but many areas of the world are unexplored and filled with enormous forests, endless deserts and majestic mountain ranges. The light of two moons, Siahray and Piohray keep the night skies bright.
Tathan left home at the age of fifteen to travel the world. He found adventure along the way, but it wasn’t always the sort a young man dreamed of. Most of it was much darker with dark alleys, knives, and a primal struggle for life at the lowest levels rather than dragons, maidens, knights and treasure. Fourteen years later, he has come home to the valley where he grew up.
Liselle is a young woman of seventeen years whose parents wish her to marry soon. However, marriage is the last thing on her mind when she has never seen anything beyond the lonely valley where she lives. Liselle spends much of her time talking to the flowers about how she feels. They listen intently to her every word.
Vevin is . . . well . . . something else entirely. His home was recently stolen from him by a terrible creature who hurt him badly. Now he is searching for a new home. Preferably something with a large area to keep his treasure . . . once he acquires some.
Sir Danth is the greatest of the ancient Knights of Morhain . . . Of course, he’s the only Knight of Morhain still alive . . . sort of alive . . . only different.
Rumors are spreading about a new race called Rojuun. They appeared from the depths of the mountains eight-hundred years ago with the intention of taking over the world. It is their understanding that humans exist to serve them, but are disappointed that humans don’t seem to be aware of that fact.
The companions are charged with finding out more about this race of Rojuun. Will they be entranced by beautiful music flowing through the air, or will they die a horrible death in the darkest depths of the world? And exactly who, or what, is Vevin anyway?
The Willden Trilogy is an epic fantasy that follows the adventures of Tathan and his companions through the Willden Forest and into the depths of the world. A new race called Rojuun has appeared in the world and is threatening to make humans their servants. It is the companions’ task to learn more and perhaps rescue a princess if they have the time.
One of the best books I've read in a long time! It had touching moments, tense moments but above all it was filled with humor and surprise!!! Can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy!
So Much Fun!
This trilogy is the most fun I have had reading in a long time. The first book starts off a little rough with the character Tathan seeming overly damaged and brooding but stick with it because the story quickly transforms into a non stop action yet somehow light hearted adventure.
The characters are wildly entertaining and I constantly disturbed my family by laughing out loud. I loved it.
I enjoy books with humor and fantasy combined and this book did it well. Am looking forward to reading the rest.
