The truth sleeps

Aednat had nothing but her family, until The Blast took them and everything Aednet knew of home in Ireland. Aednat finds herself in France, with people who seem more like myths, in a rich world unlike anywhere she ever dreamed of belonging.

Yet in caves in Ireland, strange images from the past tell the tale of a present unfolding in fire.

Aednat and her companions make their way to find answers to the questions burning the world. But if she wakes a sleeping truth, she may also awaken betrayal and great harm.

The Rucksack Universe series combines alternate history, speculative fiction, myth, adventure, globetrotting, and intrigue—all with well-poured pints of beer. Library Journal says Anthony St. Clair’s storytelling has “universe building reminiscent of Terry Pratchett,” and readers say they love the Rucksack Universe’s unique combination of “quirk, wit, travel, and magic.”
