Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Outcast Chronicles follows the fate of a tribe of dispossessed mystics. Vastly outnumbered by people without magical abilities, they are persecuted because ordinary people fear their gifts. This persecution culminates in a bloody pogrom sanctioned by the king who lays siege to the Celestial City, last bastion of the mystics. When the city falls, the mystic leader negotiates their surrender and her people are exiled from their homeland.

Imoshen: Her birth was hidden by her father, the ambitious leader of a great brotherhood. She was raised by covenant breaking T’En warriors and only just escaped with her life at eighteen. Seeking sanctuary in the Celestial City, she is voted its leader when the city is beseiged.

Tobazim: Inspired by tales of honour and glory, Tobazim went to the Celestial City, hoping to win statura and rise through the ranks of his brotherhood. But he finds the city besieged and vastly different from the stories.

Ronnyn: a pure-blood mystic to half-blood parents and only 12 years old. His gift will surface but there is no one to teach him how to contain his power and harness it. Ronnyn would do anything to protect his family, even if it means leaving them.

Aravelle: Ronnyn’s sister. Clever, but fated to serve because she was born a half-blood. Her parents lives are never ending drudgery, scraping a living from the sea and their island home’s poor soil. She fears what will happen when Ronnyn’s gift starts mannifesting. Do her parents have a plan? Will her family have to go back to the Celestial City? If they do, will her parents be punished for running away from their brotherhood?

BOOK THREE: SANCTUARY

For over 300 years the mystics lived alongside the true-men, until King Charald laid siege to the mystic’s island city and exiled them. Imoshen, most powerful of the female mystics, was elected to lead her people into exile. She faces threats from within, from male mystics who think they would make a better leader. And her people face threats from true-men, who have confiscated their ships. They must set sail by the first day of winter. Those who are left behind will be executed. Once they set sail they face winter storms, hostile harbours and sea-raiders who know their ships are laden with treasure. Imoshen relies on the sea captain, Ardonyx, for advice and Sorne, the half-blood mystic, who has lived among the true-men kingdoms of the Secluded Sea. But Imoshen knows the mystics can’t run for ever. They need somewhere to call home. They need... Sanctuary.

Synopsis:

Book three of The Outcast Chronicles; the thrilling story of Imoshen, Tobazim, Ronnyn and Aravelle, continues.

This persecution culminates in a bloody pogrom sanctioned by the king who lays siege to the Celestial City, last bastion of the mystics. When the city falls, the mystic leader negotiates their surrender and her people are exiled from their homeland. 

     Banished and forced to set sail on the first day of winter, Imoshen’s people are packed onto seven crowded ships, where Tobazim must control violence-hardened warriors. Meanwhile Ronnyn and his sister, Aravelle, have been separated, just as they feared.

     With the overcrowding, winter storms brewing and sea-raiders drawn by rumour of great wealth, tension grows on the ships. In desperation, Imoshen announces they have been offered sanctuary with the Sagora Scholars. But, although she sent the Sagoras a message, they haven’t replied. Ronnyn and Aravelle thought they would be safe once they joined people, but they face storms, raiders and an uncertain future.

Synopsis:

The mystic Wyrds have been banished by King Charald, whose descent into madness grows ever steeper. Exiled and forced to set sail on the first day of winter, Imoshen’s people are packed onto seven crowded ships. Tensions flare under the pressure and the all-fathers and all-mothers are put to the test controlling their hardened warriors. Ronnyn and his sister Aravelle have been separated, just as they feared, and look to an uncertain future. Sorne is betrayed and captured on the seas. Tobazim faces a confrontation with the bloodthirsty All-father Kyredeon and his notorious assassin, Graelen. And, while Imoshen has promised the T’Enatuath a home with the Sagoras, the enigmatic scholars have not yet replied to her plea for sanctuary. This is the thrilling climax to The Outcast Chronicles.
