Maldene – Synopsis
Maldene is a world of magic and science, wizards and dragons; but home also to an incredible secret. One jealously guarded by History’s most villainous being: Miro. For centuries his presence has been plaguing the nightmares of gods and men; the world is in his thrall, there is no one willing to face him.
Or perhaps there is. The young wizard Sabu, and his elven friend Eldar, lead their companions on a journey to seek a destiny foretold them by a blind gold-skinned gypsy. Fighting a three-hundred foot dragon will be but the beginning of this quest, as they journey the globe in search of answers to the mystery of Miro’s villainy, and uncover the world’s long-buried secrets. For they are destined to lead a new battle against this most ancient of evils, to gather all beneath the banner of a mysterious King and face the unfaceable.
There is just one problem: Miro is counting on their success.
While this first novel of Maldene to a true epic in itself, this is still only the first chapter in a saga that will span the stars and challenge your imagination. Just to put things into perspective, this first full Maldene novel- Volumes One and Two in combination- is on par, in terms of both plot and length, with the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy combined. And this is only the beginning.
Like for any good epic, the end of this novel of Maldene has some extras. The appendices at the end include:
- an alphabet,
- dictionary of local words,
- and some added notes about the world of Maldene
that bring it all to life. For this is more than simply a story, this is… legend.
A full-time author and ghostwriter, Southern California native Mark Anthony Tierno has crafted a truly epic fantasy novel that will take you to the ends of a world of magic, alien vistas, and ultimate evil. He holds a Master’s Degree in Physics, which often plays well in his creation of other worlds, and is the author of both the Maldene series and his Inspector Flaatphut series, as well as others yet to be seen. He has this one problem with writing, though: he can’t stop! When he’s not working on his own projects he’s working on someone else’s, and currently has ideas for a LOT more… if he can just find the time away from the rest of it.
