He has a settled life working in the Great Library as a slave of the Kareshian Empire. He feels lucky: he is looked after, fed and sheltered and has the prospect of advancement through the ranks. He asks no more from life other than to learn to read. That is until he turns fourteen and his life turns upside down. Horrific dreams start to disturb his sleep: scenes of a land under military occupation where torture, brutality, murder, child abduction and even sorcery are the norm haunt him relentlessly. A series of seemingly chance events: meeting the spoilt daughter of the Emperor, Princess Skylark Garesh-Far and her bodyguard nurse, the Lady Narine- the sudden appearance of Daniel, an enigmatic overseer who introduces him to the concept of slavery and freedom, leads him to question his life for the first time – is Karesh really the benign state it appears to be? Is there more to the world than the Library? Does he actually have a family out there somewhere, beyond the city and the vast desert that surrounds it? Tazmand is catapulted into a decision that will change his life forever – together with his friends Dharma and Salt, the Princess Skylark and with the help of the Lady Narine, he plans a daring escape from Karesh city into a world that none of them have ever seen, that they know little about and none of them is prepared for.‘Tazmand’ is book one of the new ‘Bloodstone of Cardemont’ series. It is only the start of the adventure...
