Harbinger, Book One of Northern Fire

By Ian McKinley

Fantasy | Paperback, eBook


Rulla, Rulla, Dealer of Fates, bestows Her blessing on four babes - Cairn, Lars, Lora and Thay - for they are all born on the same night to different mothers. The birthing is stranger yet, for once they are safely delivered, the village seeress falls into a trance and chants a verse that hints at future glory. At sixteen, they are offered in tithe to the Sea Wolves, the clan that defends the folk, sails the world’s seas, raids foreign shores and brings back plunder. Their spirits are high as they venture through the Demon’s Teeth and discover the world beyond the Boldring Mountains. Ah, but other Gods also have a role to play in any great saga and Tanat the Rogue turns their world on its head one afternoon. The youths are cut-off from their new clan and must survive on their own wits. As they make for home, they encounter Elkor, a mis-shapen outcast who forces them to re-evaluate everything they ever understood about their identity.
