About the Book:

Two of the world's greatest adventurers have disappeared, and it falls to their heirs - Jake Warbler and the half-sprite Noxie - to retrace their steps and understand these dark, mysterious vanishings. The only clues point to history's most famous work of unread literature: the Last Tragedy of Coeldoetta of Jueln. But the Tragedy has eluded all seekers for nearly fifteen hundred years. Can Jake and Noxie succeed where so many others have failed? And can they do so while outpacing a bloody-minded cult that seems to have undone the two most powerful figures in their lives? The Last Tragedy is a sweeping work of adventurous fantasy, set in a world of skyships and floating continents, brimming with magic and full of peril. It pits heroes of wit and skill against villains whose striking depravity will not soon leave the reader's mind.

Author's Note:

New draft. The first two chapters here represent a dramatic reduction in the text I'd previously posted. The next three are the original version, for anyone who wants to compare. The new chapter two is basically the old chapter three. I've self-published this book, to uniformly positive reviews on the sites where it's available. But sales are going nowhere, so either my marketing or my writing isn't connecting. The new draft is an attempt to start with more focus and get to the action more quickly.)
