The Runespell Trilogy
This is the first trilogy where the story
of Caspar, Brid and Hal begins. Caspar is the only son of a powerful
baron, ruler of Torra Alta a frontier castle on the northern border of the
wealthy country of Belbidia. Climatic changes have forced the barbaric
northern hordes southward to attack Belbidia and, whilst refusing to follow
his father's orders, Caspar is taken prisoner by the enemy.
It is a time of conflict when faith turns
countrymen against one another yet only faith can save them.

The Book of Önd
- This is a story of wolves, legendary beasts and destructive
necromantic powers. The people of Torra Alta, the northern most barony of
Belbidia, struggle to prevent a plague of fearful beasts from overpowering
their country. The Druid’s Egg, known also as Necrönd, is the talisman that
contains the breath of life of all creatures banished to the Otherworld.
- The story follows Caspar, Hal, Brid and May as they
struggle through both the world of man and the world of spirit to
find the Maiden, who is, they believe, the only means to control Necrönd.
It is also a tale of ambitions and responsibility and how man’s ability
to control the savage side of nature is ultimately destructive.

The Book of Man
The world created
in the Runespell Trilogy and the Book of
Fifteen years have passed since Caspar set
foot in Torra Alta. He has spent his time devoted to his two children and
his wife, Queen Ursula of Artor. But after Ursula's death he returns home
to claim Torra Alta for his own so that he might pass his birthright on to
his troubled son Rollo. But the youth is deeply resentful of his father's
actions and abhors the decision to return to Torra Alta, where hobs and
dragons scheme to oust man from the bountiful baronies of Belbidia.
This is a story about identity and the
search for self-awareness and understanding. Rollo's torment and
self-loathing give it particular poignancy.
