Bretagne, 880 AD
Alain, the bastard son of the witch of Dead Ox Wood, only dreamt of wielding the magic of the ley lines until the day when a mad spirit threatens his life, and he pierces the barrier to reach his hidden talent. But his new-found skills do not lead to the prosperity of his dreams. Instead, they place him on a path to a destiny he never imagined.
Alain is thrust into the center of a centuries-long battle for power over the Lands of Men. Is he the mage foretold by ages past? Is he the Fair One? His talent draws enemies and allies alike, and pits him against the most powerful mages of this world, and of the next!
In this engrossing novel, the author of the Fallen Cloud Saga and Dreams of the Desert Wind, creates an exciting alternate world that blends magic and politics, myth and history. The Dark Ages come alive with depth and honesty, taking the reader on a journey filled with prophecy, magic, and twists of fate.

"From the Author" Dear Readers: Let me take you back to the 9th century...with a twist. This book is the first of The Ploughman Chronicles. The second and concluding volume, Ploughman King, will come out within a few months. I guarantee it! I've filled this series with some of my best characters, and while yes, the plot is rife with magic and intrigue and destinies untold, it's also a story of love, loyalty, and devotion. So I hope you'll take a chance and give it a try. Many thanks to all you loyal readers! You keep me going! --krag
