Overview

Chilled and cowed by the violent fate of Garren and Katrin Yarrance and the mysterious disappearance of Farnor, the villagers can only stand by helpless as Rannick, increasingly unstable, and with his terrifying powers growing daily, turns his ambitions towards the land beyond the valley.

But in the wake of the plunder and captives brought in triumph to the castle by Nilsson and his men, confident and arrogant again, comes a shadow from their past...

Meanwhile, in the Great Forest, Farnor has survived his flight from Rannick's ancient and unholy companion with the help of the Valderen. But his soul is consumed with anger and hatred, and an overwhelming lust for vengeance darkens all future paths.

Despite their care, the Valderen fear him. As do they to whom the Great Forest truly belongs. For they sense the power that he unknowingly possesses. And they call him to the place of the Most Ancient...

Valderen is an independent novel set in the world of "The Chronicles of Hawklan". It continues the story begun in Farnor.

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.
