An act of compassion ruins Alam's life...
Alam is an oddity. Not merely because he is taller, and darker, than anyone else in the clan. And not because he is a foundling. On the inside he feels different to those around him because, despite being trained from childhood to be a warrior, he feels that he lacks the courage and conviction to kill.
Alam's clan lives on the wide steppes of The Endless Plains. It is a harsh land of long winters and warring clans. They have a fragile existence. With little land, and meager wealth, their survival depends on raiding caravans.
In the aftermath of such a raid a dying holy-man begs Alam to return an engraved, unopenable box to its rightful owner. Out of compassion, Alam accepts. Doing so puts him, his friends, his entire clan, in the path of world shaking powers well beyond their ability to survive, powers willing to slaughter everyone between them and the box.
Alam must decide. Should he give up the box, fulfill his promise to seek out its rightful owner, or somehow open it himself and discover why it is the center of so much destruction?
Engraved is a completed fantasy novel full of adventure, action, and more than a hint of romance. Chapters with be released multiple times a week.
