The Scrolls of Nef

a novel by Gary Glickman

US $26.95

ISBN: 978-0-9720718-9-5

Forced to flee the Godlian Invasion, two princes of Korshan are flung to their separate destinies. The warrior Prince Talland to seduction and betrayal by the Godlian Questioner’s beguiling daughter, and dream reader Prince Orland to his mother’s birthplace of Nef Island: where Godlian clerics are secretly burning the ancient library, and where no one of the royal lineage should ever feel safe.

The Godlians see themselves as saviors of a decadent, primitive culture—chosen by Divinity to rid two continents of women of power, torturing indigenous Celebrants of the Old Ways. Exiled among healer-women condemned as witches, warrior Talland must learn from them enough courage and wisdom to create and lead a rebellion. Dreamreader Orland must somehow escape Nef Island with the ancient wisdom scrolls safely aboard ship. Hiding in the northern mountains or on the southern archipelago sea, two royal brothers must learn to embrace each other’s opposite natures in time to outmaneuver a brutal fundamentalist empire.

At last, a novel of heart! This is an enchanting, enthralling book that, by some magic of story-telling, let me understand mysteries of my own life. Tyrant princesses, estranged queens, a warrior brother and a young hero surviving adventures that threw a brilliant light on my own passage in the world. A cross between the fast-paced fantasy writer Ursula K. LeGuin and the keen psychological witnesses Jane Austen and Marcel Proust, Glickman pulls you into his dazzling world so entirely that you will want to stay up all night reading, and saying thank you.”
