The Blaukenev clan wanders across Tilzam, one end to the other and back. Each wagon carries history, love, laughter, pain, sorrow, and secrets. Their greatest secret of all: Chavali, the clan Seer.
Spirits use her. Spirits damn her. Spirits save her.
Because of her gift, nothing surprises her anymore. No one keeps secrets from her. She, on the other hand, hides more than enough: secrets of her own, of her clan, of the world. Secrets she even keeps from herself.
Someone always wants secrets. At any price.
The Fallen tells the first story of The Greatest Sin, of a world adrift from its God. A world willing to do anything to get Her back. Hurled into this struggle, Chavali finds her once-sheltered life ripped apart and burnt to ashes.
Kort and French insightfully explore staple fantasy elements, such as telepathy and resurrection, to luminous effect...[the authors] are daring storytellers who aren’t afraid to yank the rug from beneath the audience’s feet. A fast-paced series opener that will make readers eager to know Chavali's next move.
