Valley of Embers Publisher's Summary

In a world of darkness, only the Landkist can stand against the power of the Sages.

For hundreds of years, the flame-wielding Embers have been the last line of defense against the nightmare creatures from the World Apart, but the attacks are getting worse. Kole Reyna guards Last Lake from the terrors of the night, but he fears for his people's future.

When Kole is wounded by a demon unlike any they have seen before, the Emberfolk believe it is a sign of an ancient enemy returned, a powerful Sage known as the Eastern Dark.

Kole has never trusted in prophecy, but with his people hanging on the precipice, he reluctantly agrees to lead the Valley's greatest warriors in a last desperate bid for survival. Together, they will risk everything in search of a former ally long-thought dead, and whether Kole trusts him or not, he may be the only one capable of saving them.

The Landkist Saga is the epic new fantasy series readers are comparing to Hayao Miyazaki and Steven Erikson. Valley of Embers is the first of five planned volumes.

    For Kole, Linn and the newly-minted heroes of the Valley, their recent victory is short-lived in light of new revelations. The King of Ember is alive. But the man who once led his people against the forces of darkness is changed. His path now takes him to the north and a land called Center, where he intends to bring his power to bear against another would-be God. While Kole and Linn gather a small company to follow the King, another group heads for the northern deserts, intent on discovering what power the Emberfolk left buried in the sands.

    Kole, Linn, and their companions have survived the wilds of Center, slain another Sage, and put their world on a path toward salvation. Or so they think. But the Eastern Dark has returned and laid claim to the power of T’Alon Rane, making the King of Ember his dark servant once more. Now, their ancient enemy marches across the frozen wastes of the north, seeking to end the life of his former ally and the last true power that can stand against him. With the last two Sages on a collision course that could decide the fate of the world, the Landkist of the Valley have a choice to make.
