Beyond Falcon's Reach has found a home with Nuff Said publishing, a vibrant new speculative fiction publisher based in Tampa Bay, U.S. We're looking for release date around June 2018, so watch this
space. Meanwhile here's the current version up to Chapter 7, and subject to further edits.


With the ancient blood-pact between landfolk and mountain-people at a precipice, Mourde Cullis buries himself into torturous experiments, seeking a mythical elixir of near-immortality. Only the
daughter of a powerful Landmaster can realise his goal, but the aristocratic loner soon discovers her gift to be laced with dire consequence. As an ice-age converges and the landfolk must leave
their famine-stricken homes, a terrifying new order in Farr City is hungry for the Mourde’s dark legacy. Blood must flow freely, as it did long ago, without limits and by the sword.
