Blood Ties is the first volume of the Castings Trilogy.
In the Eleven Domains the Travellers are the despised, displaced remnants of a people displaced by invasion. For 1,000 years the conquering Warlords have ruled unopposed. But opposition comes from an unexpected direction, driven by an enchanter bent on revenge. In a land where ghosts walk for those who can see and the gods talk to those who can listen the future is uncertain and driven by a bloodsoaked past.
Deep Water is the second volume of the Castings Trilogy.
Just what did happen 1,000 years ago when Acton's people came through Death Pass? Wild magic gives Bramble some unexpected insights into a history which may not be completely accurate. And why did Ash's father not teach him the secret songs of the Travellers? Why do the Dead walk in ever increasing numbers? The ultimate answers are hidden in time and lie in deep water.
Full Circle is the third volume of the Castings Trilogy.
The Dead are devasting the Eleven Domains until even the mage who brought them forth begins to wonder if he did the right thing. But it looks to be too late. Yet the answer to the Dead lies in death and in rebirth and in the sacrifice of those who live and those who have already died. In the words of the Well of Secrets, the evil dead shall triumph over the evil living. If we're lucky.
