Pindlebryth of Lenland
The Five Artifacts

2nd Edition

Pindlebryth, Prince of Lenland, awakens to discover the people of his entire nation have been enslaved by a forgotten enemy. He soon learns it is all but a part of a larger plot by an unknown nemesis to use the mystical Artifacts to remake the entire world in their own image.
Pindlebryth, and Lenland's untried sorceress Darothien, struggle against betrayal, international intrigue, and an unseen puppetmaster, as they race to follow a bewildering trail of ancient clues to locate the most powerful of the Artifacts.

"A highly crafted adult adventure filled with political intrigue, suspense, and an air of mystery. Superbly told and engaging, [Pindlebryth] is a solid entry into fantasy literature. — RECOMMENDED"
The US Review of Books

"This page-turning fantasy combines the intrigue of a gripping spy novel with the heroic action of all great epics."
Plum McCauley, Worthy of Prometheus

"Magic, betrayal, and conspiracy abound in this richly woven, Arthurian fantasy of a Lemming prince in a world ruled by feathered and furred characters."
