The Mkalis Cycle

By Kerstin Hall
The Mkalis Cycle by Kerstin Hall digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

This ebundle includes: The Border Keeper and Second Spear.

Nommo Award Finalist Kerstin Hall's novella series, The Mkalis Cycle, introduces readers to an epic, action-packed fantasy world.

The Border Keeper, the first book, tells the epic tale of a Byzantine bureaucracy of hundreds of demon realms, impossible oceans, hidden fortresses. What Vasethe discovers in Mkalis threatens to bring his own secrets into light and throw both worlds into chaos. In book two, Second Spear, warrior Tyn grapples with the knowledge of her identity, and unleashes her frustrations on all the wrong people.

“Quiet but intricate, shored up by rich prose. . . The tangle of love, loss, grief, and regret that is gradually exposed as the book’s emotional core feels tender and profound.”—Publishers Weekly

The Border Keeper: She lived where the railway tracks met the saltpan, on the Ahri side of the shadowline. In the old days, when people still talked about her, she was known as the end-of-the-line woman.

Vasethe, a man with a troubled past, comes to seek a favor from a woman who is not what she seems, and must enter the nine hundred and ninety-nine realms of Mkalis, the world of spirits, where gods and demons wage endless war.

The Border Keeper spins wonders both epic—the Byzantine bureaucracy of hundreds of demon realms, impossible oceans, hidden fortresses—and devastatingly personal—a spear flung straight, the profound terror and power of motherhood. What Vasethe discovers in Mkalis threatens to bring his own secrets into light and throw both worlds into chaos.

The Second Spear: After surviving the schemes of a vengeful goddess and learning some shattering truths about her former life, the warrior Tyn feels estranged from her role guarding her ruler. Grappling with knowledge of her identity, she unleashes her frustrations on all the wrong people.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
