Y’Keta (The Sky Road Book 1)
A young exile finds a place to belong, only to find his new home threatened by secrets from his past. If Y’keta reveals what he knows to the villagers, it will tear their history and traditions apart, but sharing his secrets may be their only hope for survival.
Y’keta is an epic fantasy set in an ancient world, where legends walk and the Sky Road offers a way to the stars.
A coming of age story with colours reminiscent of the early works of Guy Gavriel Kay or Piers Anthony.
