In a world reminiscent of northern Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire, this historical fantasy series explores the meaning of loyalty and love in a rapidly changing society. Following the protagonist, Lena, over a period of four years, from the day a soldier rides into her small village with an audacious request – that women learn to fight – to a last, desperate battle to save her land – Empire’s Legacy considers the impact of war and violence on men and women, and the price we pay for freedom.
How far will you go for love? Oraiáphon and his lyre braved the underworld to charm the gods into returning his beloved, a story known to all musicians. A fable…until music is the last offering Sorley can make to save the man he loves.
