Daoine Maithe Book 1
Unable to prevent the abduction of his fiancée Elena and her sisters, Kelian son of the King of Alkira, defies his father and accompanies elite soldiers in pursuit of Nandul of Tarl, dangerous leader of the treacherous and vengeful people known as fallen. Though once guardians known as Daoine Maithe, the fallen no longer possess the gifts or power of their guardian kin, having forsaken these abilities to obtain their freedom. Obsessed with regaining lost gifts, Nandul seeks to make a child with one of the guardians. Elena’s sister Louisa becomes the target of his obsession.
The most dangerous of fallen warriors, Milgorry of Tarl is unable to bear watching the captives as they suffer hunger and abuse. Deeply in love with Louisa, he contrives their escape but they are recaptured and taken to the village of Weema in Nyinaku.
Kelian and two gifted guardians, Timbul and Araas, pass the burning sands of Sheldon’s Quest and head for Weema in search of the captives. He is pursued relentlessly as he treks over the Ice Mountains facing overwhelming obstacles in his attempt to reach his goal.

Kelian returns to Castle, learning that the attack is not related to his recent venture into Nyinaku, the land of the Fallen, but contrived by ancient enemies of the Guardians; a flesh hungry race known as Nailmarni. The Nailmarni lay siege to the city, forcing those trapped to furtively evacuate. Kelian flees into bush land.
