Book 1 of The Hope of Memory
The Perils of Intimacy:
"Do not attach yourself to any houlf. They are beasts. No good comes of befriending one. Though they may speak our words, their intentions are false."
- from Keryca’s Treatise on Breeding
Two hundred years ago, Orland and his people fell from the sky. They arrived on lightning and scorched the center of a great forested continent. The houlves fought these humans, fought against their enslavement and the destruction of the land.
Ever since then, humans have bred houlves in Orland’s Clear, the great city in the west. Ever since then, the Moon Star has made its way across the night sky, a bluish, broken star, perpetually falling. Ever since then, memories have been lost, have been forgotten, have faded away.
But there are some who still remember.

Bonebearer (Sep 2011)
$1.99 eBook | Kindle | Nook
Kother is a young Yanai boy that lives in the jungles of Kounna. He grows up learning the ways of the jungle and what is expected of a Yanai male, though with his own private doubts about the accepted traditions and rituals of his people.
When he embarks on the male Yanai "coming of age" mission to retrieve his soulstones, he realizes that he is not fit to be a Yanai, and has no true desire to be. This realization leads him on a quest beyond the jungles of his homeland, through deserts and tundra and mountains, encountering strange peoples and customs, searching for the meaning behind his existence.
What he finds is disconcerting... and what he eventually becomes is even more disturbing, for deception lies at the core of all things.
