Speculative fiction is a broad umbrella category of narrative fiction referring to any fiction story that includes elements, settings and characters whose features are created out of imagination and speculation rather than based on attested reality and everyday life. That encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.
The evil warlord Mordig has escaped from his prison, and only the true blade of power can defeat him and save the land of Lowthar. The sword must be forged in goblin fires, and it's up to Kenric to win the goblin king's allegiance. Kenric, Linwe, and Hnagi undertake a daring mission, first into the goblin realm and then into Mordig's own stronghold. And at last they must face him in battle to decide the fate of Lowthar.
Reassuringly concise and brimming with spine-tingling adventure, the Lowthar's Blade trilogy leads young readers straight to the heart of high fantasy.
