An evil omen clouds the sky. A song of power returns. Can one man's quest save the world?

Voran, a young warrior of Vasyllia, lives in a dying world. As blight ravages the countryside and darkness covers the sun, he can't avoid hearing the rumors of an ancient spirit that devours souls. He feels powerless to fight the oncoming devastation until a mythical creature entrusts him with a long-forgotten song. Legend has it that such a song can heal the masses, overthrow kingdoms, and raise humans to divine beings...

Armed with the power of the song, Voran must hunt down the dark spirit before it achieves its goal of immortality. His quest takes him through doorways to other worlds and puts him on a collision course with seductive nymphs and riddling giants. With each step of the journey, the strength of the villainous spirit grows, as does Voran's fear that the only way to save his world... is to let it be destroyed.

The Song of the Sirin is an epic fantasy retelling of the Russian fairy tale Prince Ivan and the Grey Wolf. If you like complex characters, creative twists on mythology, and cinematic world-building, then you'll love Nicholas Kotar's sweeping tale.

About the Author

I've been fascinated by fairy tales and fantasy since before I could read. My earliest memories involve riding the backs of wolves and running away from hags riding pestles. My mother has repeatedly tried to explain to me that these things never actually happened, but I still don't believe her.

When I was old enough to write, my friends and I created an alternate version of Narnia, called Wreathlea (I don't know? It had a lot of wreaths maybe?), with a Stone Witch instead of a White Witch, and an enchanted princess who had been turned into a Golden Evergreen. Instead of playing with toys, we would go outside and look for cloud formations in the shape of lions (Aslan, you know). Except in our version, he was called Seaze. You can imagine what a silly picture we made, standing outside, staring at the sky, screaming "Seaze! Where are you?" with all our might...

Other derivative masterpieces of childhood included "Duels of Space" which started as a standard Star Wars ripoff but eventually included ninjas riding the backs of warrior bears...

Come to think of it, not much has changed. I still have warriors riding bears in my books!
