Wick often imagines exploring the legendary Infernal Isle during the long days spent in a musty library as the scribe’s apprentice. He continually recites his late father’s tales of the place, stories that both thrill and frighten him. He spends almost all of his meager free time studying everything he can about the Isle and pouring over ancient maps and treatises describing its expanses. He even dreams of the place, feeling an undeniable attraction to go and unveil the Isles secrets himself.Dark times ensue once King Saedis is crowned and he orders a purge of those deemed undesirable from his realm. Wick finds himself among the persecuted, and must decide between an inevitable and grueling death working the King’s mines, or banishment to the Infernal Isle. There is really no choice, for with exile comes a chance: cross the Isle in five days and a ship will carry the survivors home to receive a royal pardon and celebrate at a feast fit for heroes.However, Wick knows only one person has ever returned from banishment; the Isle, once the seat of an empire that spanned the globe, is now covered with overgrown ruins. Worse, it is infested with preternatural beasts and the Restless: cursed men trapped between life and death. Wick soon finds himself stranded on the Isle with other desperate exiles, and with minimal supplies they struggle to survive in defiance of the odds. Though young, soft and inexperienced, Wick soon finds he knows more about the Isle than anyone in the group, which wins him a few stalwart allies. He’ll have to come of age quickly by using all of his wits and guile, not to mention unexpected courage, to cross the savage wilds and dangerous ruins of the Infernal Isle to claim his salvation.The Infernal Isle is the first of a planned trilogy, to be followed by The Infernal City and The Infernal Curse. This series marks the debut of a brand new, original fantasy world that will serve as the backdrop for many more Tales of Olde.
