The Outlaw and the Upstart King
"As it is inked, so shall your oaths and bindings be." Tattoos are the only law on the Island of the Free, and there can never be a king. Every clan agrees on that. But a returning exile has smuggled something across the water that could send the old ways up in flames. Elias wants revenge on the men who severed his oaths and made him an outlaw. But, if his wealth and honour are to be restored, he’ll need help from the most unlikely quarter – a mysterious woman, landed unwontedly on Newfoundland’s rocky shore. "I love that these are great adventure stories, but also have a more thoughtful side to them – the worlds we visit are all very different and flawed in very different ways, but inhabited by people who have been shaped by the nature of those worlds. It’s very clever, but also very engaging – I find myself completely drawn in, unable to predict what will happen next. I also have a strong sense that there is an overall plan to the whole series – this is building into a fantastic overall tale. Really looking forward to the next instalment!” – Clare Littleford, author of The Quarry
