Set in the Archipelago, the first book in THE ALDABRESHIN COMPASS tells the story of Daish Kheda, ruler of a peaceful southern domain. From the outer islands comes the news that a powerful sorcerer is wreaking chaos and destruction. But the locals are wary of magic and refuse to fight fire with fire.
His own family and domain threatened, Kheda resolves to defeat the unknown power of the south - a decision that will lead to battles of sword and wizardry, and the discovery of a magical force the like of which has never been imagined.
The Aldabreshin Compass is a major epic of empire and intrigue from an author whose storytelling has set fantasy fiction alight.
In these four stories, Juliet E. McKenna revisits the fine Victorian
tradition of the monster mystery. Drawing on the works of Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stephenson and the sadly neglected
Bertram Fletcher Robinson, McKenna brings her own take to tales of
hunting down that which should not be.
The book is illustrated with pictures by Nancy Farmer.
