Heart of the World

The Heart of the World is a land in strife. For fifty years the Holy Empire of Mann, an empire and religion born from a nihilistic urban cult, has been conquering nation after nation. Their leader, Holy Matriarch Sasheen, ruthlessly maintains control through her Diplomats, priests trained as subtle predators.

Ash is a member of an elite group of assassins, the Roshun. Forced by his ailing health to take on an apprentice, he chooses Nico, a young man living in the besieged city of Bar-Khos. When the Holy Matriarch’s son deliberately murders a woman under the protection of the Roshun, he forces the sect to seek his life in retribution.

So begins Col Buchanan’s novel Farlander and his epic fantasy series Heart of the World.
