We stood upon the point at the Bright Isle and watched the currocks carry him towards us. A fleet of boats with white sails, and the Oak Seers within them all robed in white too. Banners flew from their masts as they took the tide ebbing eastwards from the Narrow Strait, bringing with it a favourable wind, though one which chopped the sea on this first day of favourable weather since Ambros had passed over. A cold, late Januarius day, but the sun shining. A day filled with good portents.

In the lands once named Britannia by the Empire and its vanished Legions, the Oak Seers’ song-sayers still weave their words into the lore by which everyday life is ordered, into the myths and sagas of hero-tales, and into the very fates that will determine whether the years ahead shall be bathed in shining light or plunged into a terrible darkness.

In his fifth novel, David Ebsworth brings to life the stories of young warlord Ambros Skyhound, and the blind song-sayer, Morgose, told through the words of teacher and mentor Meridden of Sea Fort.
