Fionúir’s Mural

Fionúir’s Mural is a coming of age story in the swords and sorcery genre, an unforeseen hero’s quest set in a world called Eilir. It is the first of the Purification Trilogy that I’m writing. Its just been uploaded to Smashwords, so it will be available as an e book in just a few days. I’m in the process of proofing a print copy, so by the middle of February it should be availabe as a print on demand book from Amazon’s Createspace.

This is the story of a 13 year old boy in exile and out of favor who discovers himself the subject of a 250 year old mural painted by the prophetess Fionúir, depicting two famous historical battles and one that has yet to occur. It is about the boy’s quest across foreign lands to discover who the other figures depicted alongside him in the mural are and what part they play in his life and in Fionúir’s prophecy. It is about the boy discovering who he truly is and what he is capable of and mastering that knowledge to face his world to overcome adversity and defeat the enemies who would see him and his family dead. He is helped by a dream companion who has been with him since his youth, a mentor, who turns out to be the spirit of one of the heroes of the first battle depicted in Fionúir’s Mural. It is about breaking with tradition and doing what works, blazing a trail instead of following the beaten path. It is about perseverance and honor. It is about finding true friends and true love. The time for the final battle of Purification approaches. It about who dares… wins.
