The Girl With the Bow

Vival is a knight whose talent for putting up with hardship brings him into contact with a young, dark-skinned girl from Under the Mountain on Veer Isle.  The girl, Nyla, can neither say where she belongs or how she got there.  But she's ready to leave.

Unfortunately, Vival's boat has been smashed to pieces by a mysterious storm.  Now Vival and Nyla must seek help from two misfit criminals named Chere and Sherluck who seem to hate one another, even though they're never in the room at the same time.  Yet as the small world of the island seems to collapse around them, the only thing that can save them all may be Nyla’s undiscovered talent.


In this first installment, Adam Cole follows in the tradition of C.S. Lewis and Phillip Pullman in unfolding a rich fantasy world for children and adults.
