Maldene is a world of fantasy and science, a world of fantastic creatures, characters that range from the crazy to the wise, and home to many astounding secrets. It is also home to the most villainous evil known: Miro (Pronounced MY-RO). It is said that even the gods fear Miro, though they aren't saying why, and stories of this evil wizard go back many thousands of years.
Into this, Sabu and Eldar lead a band of mercenaries for the alleged reason of raiding one of Miro's old abandoned labs, yet several in this group have ulterior motives. For Sabu and Eldar, this would be what a blind old gold-skinned gypsy had told them about a destiny and the third of their number they would meet. Making it through the hazards of this old facility only starts them on a road that will take them across the farthest reaches of Maldene, through it all ever the dark hand of Miro in evidence. Everywhere save with a mysterious King who seems the only one willing to stand up against the forces of Miro, as Sabu and Eldar find that they and their companions have been recruited for a battle against the most evil being ever known.
The Maldene series spans several continents of this giant Earth-swallowing world, crosses to other dimensions, and later on in the series other worlds and even far distant periods in its history. But it all begins in the first book (currently published as Volume I and Volume II), in which we follow Sabu, Eldar, Sindar and their companions on a search for secrets, destiny, and discovery of what Really goes on in the world. Three different continents, journey to a second world, the Sea of A Thousand Islands, Tedelnosho (The Great Whirlpool), the mysterious King who is the only one willing to stand up to Miro's forces, over a dozen main characters, several alien races (from the sea-going Thirdocians to the avian-evolved Kÿecians), and this is just the first book, as but the first chapter in a story that spans several books.
