Gatekeeper Book I – Empire of the Ulfair
The summer of 1900, an English schoolboy
named Peter de Soto vacations in northern Spain at the home of his cousin,
Bonifacia Espasande. While chasing a butterfly for Bonnie’s collection the pair
stumble upon an underground passage linked to a treasured family heirloom. They
investigate, only to find themselves trapped on a distant world with a number of
baffling connections to Earth.
Mired in a
shattering civil war, the cousins are driven apart and forced to travel starkly
different roads. The Duke of Menom uses Peter to further his political ambitions
by passing him off as the “lord arbiter imperial,” a long dead blood relation.
Peter is quietly befriended by a Bakan archer in the duke’s service and is
guided by Joshkar through his first brush with battle.
In due course, Peter learns that his only real
hope of ever returning home lies with an elusive “wizard” named Thomajun and
that he must trek to Bakus Sura to seek him out. His life takes an even stranger
twist when he finds himself saddled on this perilous journey with a great
responsibility—the safety of Princess Aixûs,
last of the Ulfair royal house. Bonifacia, meanwhile, is rescued from the duke’s
clutches by a common soldier named Henrik and aided in her own struggle for
survival by an acquisitive Gno’man named Gemesh. Captured by fiendish Og’yre and
traded to the seafaring Weshnut, Bonifacia and her two companions face a
seemingly dark and uncertain future.
