Vashnar is the Commander of Arvenstaat's Wardens. Ambitious, ruthless, and weary of the antiquated and irrelevant proceedings of its government, the Moot, he plans to seize power and reestablish the ancient rule of the Dictators.

But, in a terrifying confrontation, his messenger, Thyrn, a young inexperienced Caddoran, sensitive to the point almost of telepathy, reads the intentions beneath his words and flees in panic. Accompanied by his uncle, three Wardens and Endryk, a shoreman, Thyrn is driven into the Karpas Mountains by Vashnar's relentless pursuit.

There, however, a darker power begins to reveal itself: a power which has waited for time beyond knowing for such as Vashnar, a power that will drive his ambitions far beyond the boundaries of Arvenstaat, a power which, apart from Vashnar himself, only Thyrn can sense and oppose.

But by any measure, Thyrn is no warrior, and his companions are too few to stand against Vashnar's vicious Tervaidin...

Caddoran is an independent novel set in the world of "The Chronicles of Hawklan".

About the Author

Roger Taylor was born in Heywood, Lancashire, England and now lives in the Wirral. He is a chartered civil and structural engineer, a pistol, rifle and shotgun shooter, an instructor/student in a highly personalised form of aikido (heavily influenced by tai chi and systema) and, not least, an enthusiastic and loud but bone-jarringly inaccurate piano player.

Ostensibly fantasy, his major work - the twelve books of the 'Chronicles of Hawklan' - is much more than it seems and has been called 'subtly subversive'. He has also written Aikido - More Than a Martial Art, the fantasy novel The Keep, Newman which he describes as 'odd', and Travellers which is science fiction.

Taylor writes amazing epic fantasy that is often contained in a single book and this is one of them. He weaves a complex world that you can see as a possible otherworld but you can also see some of his weaknesses and commonly used character types.Thyrn is a young in-experienced Caddoran, a group of people within this world who can relay messages exactly as said, from their ability to encompas the message and somewhat get the thinking behind the message this leads Thyrn to see too much into the mind of Vashnar, the commander of Arvenstaat's Wardens. This leads to Thyrn running from the world he knows, but his path will lead him back to fight against the evil that Vashnar has embraced.The ending is very rushed and maybe it would have been better served by being two books instead of one.
