The Springs of Malun – The Blood Son

A world that’s coming to an end, a ruthless ruler, and two women, who rebel against all Conventions

In the world of Ruann, the water is drying up. It withdraws deeper and deeper into the earth so that it becomes increasingly tedious to pump it through the tunnel systems, a fact that condemns people to hunger and thirst. Alia is a slave in Farua, which was subjugated by Sapion, a great Empire addicted to expansion.

The Faruanian slaves live in a state of abject poverty and Alia tries to alleviate her neighbors’ misery at least a bit, as her late mother taught her the art of healing. One night, when she takes care of a terminally ill man, she finds - hidden in his cabin – a strange calendar. Alia, who is one of the few slaves that learned how to read and write deciphers the meaning of the symbols that give a hint as to why the water disappears from Ruann – and what could be done to propitiate the gods and reverse the deadly trend. Alia conceives a bold plan. Together with her younger sister and her fiancé, she decides to escape from the slave camp and search for the myth-enshrouded land of the gods, Malun, the land of the thousand springs, the last region in the world where the water is still as alive as it used to be in the old days.

For all fans of the television series „Game of Thrones“

A fascinating fantasy trilogy by an experienced author
