An adolescent escapes a youth labor camp and finds himself in a mysterious land teeming with strange creatures, intriguing characters and a dangerous quest.
Pinch, a resourceful youth who makes a desperate escape from one of the Emperor's press gangs, encounters a world of wonder waiting for him to explore. In a realm where danger lurks at every turn, unexpected friendships are made and enduring pledges are kept as our unlikely hero seeks the answers to mysteries that lie within as well as without.
Futhark is a world that redefines the traditional understanding of fantasy lore. Abandon all preconceptions of pirates, magicians, wizards, sorcerers, druids, dragons, ogres, trolls, gnomes, dwarves and more. It is an epic saga that defies all expectations of standard literary fare in these regards.
It is my hope that this unconventional means towards a familiar subject compels you to remain with Pinch on his journey long after you've turned the first page.
