BOOK TWO OF THE COLDMAKER SAGA
The Great Drought began eight hundred years ago when the sins of the Jadans angered the Crier, who ripped their Cold away.
Most of the land died. The Khat became nobles. Jadans all became slaves and their warriors disappeared.
Return to a world of endless heat in the sequel to COLDMAKER.
Under the burning sun Micah escapes the city he has always called home. His father dead, his mentor slain, his workshop burned to the ground, all he has left are his two closest friends: fellow runaway slave, the fierce Shilah and Cam, the last good noble. They are hunted by the oppressors they dared to challenge.
For though they are alone, they are not empty handed. Micah wields a machine that will alter their fiery land forever: an invention of his own making that can create Cold. In a world where rivers boil in their beds and the sky glows red, this changes everything.
They must take an ancient, secret path north to the Jadan promised land – to stay ahead of their enemies and to keep their secret safe.
But freedom can be costly and unpredictable: once ignited, it spreads like fire.
Having spent most of his life trapped in the frozen tundra of upstate New York, Daniel Cohen decided to dream himself somewhere new. It was from this quest for heat that the scorching world of COLDMAKER was born.
In addition to his writing career, Daniel is a semi-professional saxophonist in Austin, Texas, spending his days in front of the page and his nights in front of crowds. Sometimes the crowds cheer, and Daniel often wishes the page would do the same.
