Product Description

Product Description

An independent novel set in Hawklan's world. Since their leader Petran died, the Guild of Dream Finders have been timid, and their ancient craft has fallen into disrepute. Petran's son Antyr, young, grief stricken and only part trained, could not begin to fill the vacuum left by his father. Increasingly he has become a bitter spectator, with neither the cynicism to become rich by pandering to the whims of the wealthy, nor the courage to offer them his skills honestly and without fear. His nightly visits to the alehouse have resulted in a dwindling of his customers, and the quarrels with his strange Companion have grown increasingly unpleasant. Then mysteriously one night, Antyr is taken to Duke Ibris of the City of Serenstadt, who has been troubled by mystifying and unsettling dreams. It is the beginning of a journey that leads inexorably to a terrible confrontation with a malevolent blind man possessed of a fearful otherworldly sight, and Ivaroth, a warrior chief determined to conquer the Duke's land and all beyond... 221000 words.

More About the Author

I was born in Heywood, Lancashire, and now live in the Wirral. I am a chartered civil and structural engineer, a pistol, rifle and shotgun shooter, aikido instructor/student, a loud and alarming piano player, and a really bad guitar player.

I have written thirteen epic fantasy novels and a book drawn from my thinking about aikido. The novels are best read in the right order which I have set out below as it is different from the Amazon display.

The Call of the Sword
The Fall of Fyorlund
The Waking of Orthlund
Into Narsindal

Dream Finder
Farnor
Valderen
Whistler
Ibryen
Arash-Felloren
Caddoran
The Return of the Sword

The Keep

Aikido - more than a martial art

The first four are known as the Chronicles of Hawklan. Dream Finder to Caddoran are 'stand-alone' works though they are set in the same world as the Chronicles, follow the events there and contain some of the main characters. The Return of the Sword draws them all together again.

The Keep is more recent and is a very strange book.

While all the above wanted to be written, the aikido book demanded to be written. It is philosophical in character, dealing with matters which are important not only to martial artists of any discipline but to any inquiring mind. It has been called 'The Book of Five Rings for the 21st Century'

All the books are available in Kindle versions and other e-formats via Mushroom Publishing. All except the aikido book are also available in paperback (Bladud). Make of them what you will, but if you buy them I hope you enjoy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars R&R Review 23 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In one of my critics to the Chronicles of Hawklan I wrote that Taylor must still find the golden path of epic fantasy writing. In Dream-Finder he found definitely this path. Although the story is told rather detailed, you do not get the felling to be filled up with unnecessary sidelines or episodes. The step size of telling is very regular. This book is witness of Taylors talent to build solid dramaturgy. For fans of the Chronicles of Hawklan the Dream-Finder is a lose extension to this chronicles. The Mantynnai and the Counselor of Ibris are some of the leading officers of Dan-Tors Mathidrin. Jadric and Haster are Orthlundyn. The Dream-Finder play in a land neighboring the countries of the iron ring and plays in a time there Hawklan is still alive. Ivaroths white eyed partner is a minion of the destroy Dan-Tor, trying to reach the old level of power. The figure of duke Ibris is very good developed. Ibris defense of the Mantynnai (in the Sened) is noble. The counselor-chamber (parliament) of the city Whendrak and the tumult there is nicely written. The fighting of Arwain's Troops in front of Whendrak is white hoot story telling. It is the lack of any unregularities that makes the book a masterpiece. For all who suffering at the inadequate writing of some bestseller authors this is the right medicine to cure the wounds.

Excellent book - beautifully written - great storytelling. Loved the characters. And Mr Taylor has written loads of books - there's nothing like finding a good author that's new to you. Will share the knowledge with my fantasy loving family too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 26 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you want to read about political intruigue, invasions, dream travelling, and more, this is your book. I think what I like in this book best is the deep characterization - you get to know each character very very deeply, and none of them are shallow. Written superbly, and very original, a must read for all fantasy lovers.
