[Wattys2018 Shortlist] The realm called The Squareworld is created and maintained by a supreme being known as The Mind.
In The Squareworld, where blood is water, and there are no celestial bodies, threads of fate bring three individuals together.
Squinty, an orphan girl with mysterious past destined to become one of the fiercest Vigils, War Dog Riders.
Drian, an abbot dissatisfied with his way of life, who is thirsting for adventure.
Nalina, a wayward princess on the run, sought after by an entire kingdom in order to be executed.
This unlikely trio is bound by one secret: they are The Etched Ones.
Their bodies harbour the mysterious power never witnessed before in The Squareworld given to them by The Etchings.
