Leiyatel's Embrace
by Clive S. Johnson

An Awesome Indies Approved novel - your guarantee of quality writing.

At the end of a long, slow decline, the huge castle realm of Dica seems to be drawing close to its final days, but few of its remaining inhabitants are aware of this. Even when stirred into some ineffectual action by the arrival of an unexpected army - amassed before its gates - the true meaning of what's really happening only comes slowly, and only to a small group of oddly assorted characters. Follow their journey as they travel the realm's vast and convoluted ways, as they eventually unearth a complex and strange past, and much about themselves.

This is the first book of the Dica Series, a leisurely introduction to much of the weird and wonderful that marks this out as a unique ‘created-world’ story. This is, however, a world wrought with mystery, a world of the unexpected, a world of vast vistas and intimate observations. It's also a compelling tale, one that builds to a most unexpected and thought-provoking conclusion. At times lyrical, the rich prose will steadily draw you into a totally fresh yet seemingly familiar place and time, one that will stay with you forever.
