"Intrigues and political machinations kept me guessing and the more weighty themes were countered with a sense of fun and adventure. Vikse has offered another dynamic and compelling tale that leaves me counting the days until the next installment is released. Exhilarating." - RDaug (Amazon Review) * * * * *
Far to the north of Tranthaea, across the Sea of Nalani, lies another continent: one that has never felt the power of the Keepers. Welcome to Nua Verden, home of the Terrian Confederacy.
Growing up with professional criminals has its pros and cons. For sixteen-year-old Auric Foundling, life with a crew of master con artists is all he knows. But when the promise of the biggest score of their lives appears, Auric and his best friend Pan have to rely on their crew, training, guts, and instincts to survive. The crew’s mark – a young and newly-minted Baron named Dominik Varas – may be the target for a number of schemes, not all of them aiming to take only his gold.
High in her palace tower, Genna Tosetti wishes that she could escape the life set before her by her father, the Lord Regent. Day after day it seems her future holds only tedious parties with dreary bureaucrats, but when she happens to cross paths with street urchin Auric, their worlds collide. What starts as a simple con quickly escalates as Auric intrudes into the highest social circles of Nua Verden, unaware of the powerful currents of greed that swirl around those nearest to the throne. Each imbued with a desire for a life far different than their own, both Auric and Genna must decide who to trust as they navigate the complicated political and criminal underworlds of Fanvalor. But how can you trust anyone when everyone you know is a professional liar?
Come explore this brand-new land in J.R. Vikse’s Tranthaean Adventure series. Filled with diverse and exciting characters, elaborate con games, and chilling new villains, The Golden Fleece will remind you why you’ve longed to return to Tranthaea.
