Tachyon is proud to announce our new release of Charles de Lint’s classic fantasy novel EYES LIKE LEAVES. We are joining Charles and his partner MaryAnn Harris for a special giveaway on Facebook. By joining the novel’s Facebook group, members are entered into a March 7th drawing to win copies of the novel and signed CDs of Charles and MaryAnn’s music.
EYES LIKE LEAVES, called “an enchanting epic fantasy” by Publishers Weekly, is a tale set in the mythical Green Isles, where the summer magic is waning. Vikings in snake ships pillage the coastal towns, driving the terrified Dathenan from their homes. There is a growing chill in the air even during the longest days of the summer solstice. The priests pray for deliverance, but to no avail; soon the isles will be encased in permanent frost. The harpers tell a tale of two feuding siblings: Hafarl, the Summerlord, has grown silent, his staff broken and his power dwindling. His brother Lothan, the Icelord, hunts the Summerlord like a hound, bringing chaos in the guise of the marauding ships. The Oracle at Pelamas Henge has decreed that the Summerlord’s staff must be restored. Their hopes rest upon a mysterious old dhruide, his inexperienced apprentice, a naïve young woman, and her adoptive family of tinkers and musicians carrying the magic of the Summerborn….
EYES LIKE LEAVES is available now at Amazon.com.
