His name is Farden.
They whisper that he’s dangerous.
Dangerous is only the half of it.
A spellbook has gone missing from the libraries of Arfell – a very old and extremely powerful spellbook from the time of dark elves and demons. Five scholars are dead, the magick council is running out of time and options, and the Arka are once again on the brink of war with the Siren dragon-riders.
It falls to Farden the Written Mage to keep the world from falling into chaos. Entangled in a web of lies and politics, Farden must recover the spellbook before an ancient enemy rises, even if it takes journeying halfway across icy Emaneska and back.
In his fight for answers, Farden will unearth a secret that not only shakes the foundations of his world, but threatens the entire future of Emaneska. Sorcery, death, drugs and the deepest of betrayals await him.
Welcome to Emaneska.
The Written is the first volume in The Emaneska Series, written by dark and epic fantasy author Ben Galley. Described as “Die Hard meets Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter meets Sin City”, The Written is packed with magic and monsters, gods and demons, perfect for fans of Brandon Sanderson, Robin Hobb, and George R.R. Martin.
