The Sword and the Boy (528 pages) is the first volume of The Sword of Anatolia trilogy. I expect to have The Sword and the Song out by November 2022. It is written and just needs a little editing.
This story is actually about two boys. One is a gifted artisan, who knows intuitively how to forge weapons. The other is a passionate and intense young man keen on proving himself. When they meet, anything is possible.
But the story starts in another part of the galaxy, where we learn about a creature who seems to enjoy evil for evil’s sake. He believes that pride is the universal currency, and he is destined to rule, because he is so full of pride. When pride smashes into humility, sparks fly.
