It has been six hundred years since Imoshen the First, Causare of the T’En, brought her beleaguered people across the seas to Fair Isle.

The magical folk mixed with the natives, bringing culture and sophistication, and made the island one of the wealthiest, most powerful nations in the known world.

In one night, all is lost. Imoshen, namesake of the first Empress, is the last pure-blooded T'En woman, left behind when her kinfolk went to die in defence of their homeland. The savage Ghebites, barbarians from the warm north, have conquered Fair Isle, and their general, Tulkhan, claims her as his right of conquest.

Proud and fierce, trained in arts of war and possessed of extraordinary healing gifts, Imoshen must choose to submit to the barbarian soldier and save her people's heritage... or to die in a futile gesture of defiance.

Fair Isle was once legendary among the lands, a place of wealth, elegance and culture. Now it lies blackened and despoiled, its barbarian Ghebite conquerors trampling places that, for centuries, had known only peace and beauty.

Imoshen, one of the last of the T'En—legendary for their magical powers and their ethereal grace—carries the Ghebite General Tulkhan's child, but she must still battle to defend both her position in his new kingdom and her people's lives and futures. Tulkhan himself, bewitched both by her fierceness and her country's ancient heritage, fears and resents her even as he grows to love her.

And something else threatens Imoshen's safety in this new world. For there is one other living T'En - Reothe, a prince of her people, and once her betrothed - who means to reclaim his country and his throne once more; and Imoshen besides...

Desperate Alliances

Fair Isle has found a new ruler, and a new way of life. Tulkhan, the Ghebite General, has long severed ties with his brother the King, and is forging a new country, bringing the best of his people—their ferocity, courage and passion—and the people he has conquered—their culture, sophistication and egalitarianism—together in a nation that will change the world.

His bond-partner—never a Ghebite "wife"—Imoshen, last of the pure-blood T'En women, with her wine-dark eyes and silver hair, rules by his side. What began as a political alliance has blossomed into love, for one another and their newborn son.

But even as differences still cause trouble between the Ghebites and the people of Fair Isle, Imoshen's past tears her in half. For Reothe, once her betrothed, once so great a threat to them and now crippled by her powers, still seeks to draw her away. And the lure of the mind-touch—the magical intimacy that she and Tulkhan can never share—is one she cannot ignore...

Tobazim arrives in port, to ready the way for his people, and finds their ships have been stolen. Sorne, the king’s halfblood advisor, needs to find his sister and bring her to safety. Ronnyn and his family, living peacefully in the wilderness, are kidnapped by raiders eager for the reward.

It has been six hundred years since Imoshen the First, Causare of the T’En, brought her beleaguered people across the seas to Fair Isle. The magical folk mixed with the natives, bringing culture and sophistication, and made the island one of the wealthiest, most powerful nations in the known world.

But all glory is temporary. The Ghebites, savage barbarians from the warm north, have rolled over the mainland, conquering all in their path, and now they have taken Fair Isle. Imoshen, namesake of the first Empress and the last pure-blooded T’En woman, is all that survives of that great heritage. Now, just seventeen years of age, she must offer herself to the Ghebite General, Tulkhan, and do what she can to ensure her survival, and that of her people.

One other T’En survives: Reothe, Imoshen’s betrothed, newly returned from adventuring on the high seas. As the T’En warrior foments rebellion against Tulkhan in secret, Imoshen must choose, both as a woman and as a leader, between a past now lost and an uncertain future…

Featuring three-books-in-one and beautifully packaged in a stunning cover from series artist Clint Langley, The Fall of Fair Isle offers incredible value as a standalone single volume trilogy collection. Taking place six hundred years after the events of Daniells’ popular The Outcast Chronicles, The Fall of Fair Isle will delight both fans of Daniells’ previous titles and lovers of great epic fantasy.

Unavailable in North America for over ten years and never previously released into the UK or Europe, The Fall of Fair Isle is the eagerly anticipated lost treasure in Daniells’ impressive catalogue of writing, and the perfect introduction to her incredible world building for readers coming to her works for the first time.
