A riveting tale of growth and redemption by a master storyteller
Tamison is a flightless falcon: a worthless man who cannot even work to feed his family. Once a miner like the rest of his family, he lost his nerve after a cave-in trapped him and killed his father and brother. Discovering his wife and children have vanished, stolen away by the Brotherhood, he renames himself in their image: Sueldan. A ratty stray dog joins him, then a fortune teller with a magical ability, a guard whose own sister was lost to the Brotherhood and a mysterious conman who knows more than he s letting on. But if Tamison/Sueldan is to rescue them from slavery, he must discover his own wings and take flight.
A man with nothing left to lose must discover his own hidden strengths if he is to save all those he holds dear
