From the Author
The first thing that readers will notice about Legend of Shadows, is that dragons, elves, dwarves, orcs, and most other commonly recognised fantasy races have yet to be discovered... especially by the reader. Everyone loves a beginning, hence the popularity of prequels. But more importantly, there is a certain magic to first encounters, to discovering something for the first time. In legend of Shadows, this 'discovery' concept is taken one step further due to the central protagonist having lost his memory at the start of book one (Brokentide). Through the eyes and actions of the central protagonist (Nathiel Maudin), readers are subject to the wonders and mysteries of the atypical fantasy world, as though for the very first time.
