The Bronze Canticles are an expansive new saga chronicling the world-altering changes that take place in three connected universes that are slowly drawing together-the human world, the goblin world, and the faerie world. The story of Book 1 will mostly focus on the changes to the human world, which will be influenced by catastrophic events taking place in the other two worlds. Young Galen Arvad has a beautiful new wife, Berkita, and a thriving job as an iron craftsman with his dwarf friend, Cephas, in the small town of Leeside. But Arvad guards the ugly secret of his own magical ability. The community views magic powers as a sign of lunacy, and at a yearly ritual they offer up their local crazies to the Dragon Priests, who take them away to the city. This year, Berkita and Cephas are devastated to see Arvad being hauled away with the other "insane" and vow to follow and rescue him. Arvad, meanwhile, arrives at a camp outside the city where he learns all the new draftees are to be trained in the arts of war. But Arvad soon realizes that the "war" is a sham-the Dragon Kings have genocidal plans for their magical subjects.

The first book is stunning! The worlds are crafted with the finest care and are delicately connected. The appendices in the back of the novel are a great and wonderful addition as well! I can't wait to read the other books in this series. :)
