Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 153065162X, Paperback)The kingdoms of the Northwest were once unified under a single crown, but treachery split ancient Westervael in twain. Now, in a land long-divided by war, two kings chase different dreams for their people. The Black Falcon seeks compromise, independence, and loyalty to tradition. The White Falcon longs for reunification of the Brother Realms, no matter the cost. An attack by assassins shatters a fragile peace, and caught up in the maelstrom are twin brothers: Kieryn: awkward, absentminded, bookish. When voices in his head begin to whisper of murder, Kieryn fears he’s going mad. He soon discovers, however, that he is a vessel for powers that have lain dormant in his family for generations. While his family marches to war, Kieryn must turn his back on those he loves and muster the courage to enter a forbidden world. Crossing beyond the Veil, he encounters the Elarion, the Goddess’s proud, enigmatic First Children. Among them, Kieryn is a spark that awakens ancient memory and smoldering hatred. Yet only the Elarion can help him uncover his family’s past and his hidden gift, though his efforts may cost him his sanity and his soul. Kelyn: a charming knight-in-training and his father’s ideal. Yearning to follow in his father’s footsteps, Kelyn is put to the test when war breaks between the Brother Realms. He soon finds himself an invader on foreign soil, where his preternatural foresight in battle earns him the king’s favor and a reputation as the Swiftblade. But a knight’s vows are easier spoken than kept. As the armies of the Falcon Kings meet blade to blade, lines blur between courage and madness, honor and self-delusion. In this war-torn realm where bard song seals a man’s reputation for all time, Kelyn must choose between personal glory and the lives of his countrymen. Can he become the knight his father hopes he can be, or will his actions threaten his family’s honor and the lives of thousands? (formerly published as Blood of the Falcon, Volume 1)
