Over a thousand years have passed, yet there has been no sign of the legenders, those mysterious beings who once formed the elements into the shapes of mighty beasts. Many think the legenders are a myth, and no one suspects that Arkos—the reclusive artisan who carves animal bones—is one of them. Arkos’ life of solitude, however, is drastically changed when the ancient city in which he lives is struck by a great terror and the old myths begin to resound once more. As plots and danger arise, Arkos is swept up into an adventure that takes him into the dark unknown, and along his journey he learns that the true nature of his being runs much deeper than he had come to believe.
Jason Link—whose roots are in Traverse City, Michigan—currently lives with his family in Managua, Nicaragua where he is a teacher. The question he has been asked the most is: “Are you lost?” It may seem that he is, but it is most likely that he is wandering while deep in thought. He dwells often on the art of story, for he sees God’s beauty in the finely crafted plot.
