This is my first novel, and I am sending my beloved characters out into the wide world with a mixture of hopefulness and trepidation. "Lord of the Waters" is a different kind of fantasy novel--realistic, gritty, philosophical and political. My fervent wish is that when readers immerse themselves in "Lord of the Waters", the world and its characters will become as real to them as it is to me.
Lord of the Waters
Jahan A'kel. Son of the Waters.
"That was a very good story. You must put it with our other stories and keep them always. Do not forget them. Do not forget our people."
"Never, Mama. I will never forget."
At first, it was him and Mama.
All he wanted was to take Mama home, back to their people, but somehow it has all gone wrong.
Now there is only the water, and where it is taking him he does not know.
Alone and adrift, Jahan must find his way in a new world, a world that is utterly strange to him--the world of men.
This is Jahan's story, the story of a boy becoming a man...and a legend.
