From the Author
This, my fourth novel and fifth book, tells the story of a young man seeking a better life. Struggling against superstition in a pastoral society, he must find his own way in the world. Kevin takes a journey to discover the true history of the planet Farthrow, and unlock the mysteries of the past. In dealing with not only his own people and their enemies, but also the mysterious and ghostly 'shades,' Kevin journeys to all corners of his world with one clear goal. Against tremendous odds, he must reunite his people with the ancient legacy of their forefathers, all the while discovering how much of what they knew of their history was a lie.
The fate of his planet and his people rides heavy on Kevin's shoulders in this adventure of lost peoples, lost knowledge, and the ever present threat of the loss of humanity.
I hope that you choose to read this novel, and enjoy it as much as I did.
