Brandon M. Lindsay grew up in the Seattle area, and now lives in Tokyo, Japan. He received a degree in philosophy from the University of Washington in Seattle.
While he can be frequently seen debating politics and philosophy, his truest love is writing epic fantasy. In the Fourth World series, he has released the novella Spear Mother, the novelette Dark Tree, and a collection of stories called The Clans. Brandon will continue to write stories in the Fourth World, as well as in other worlds.
He is also a co-founder of The Fictorian Era, a blog for writers.
Sandrena has been chosen for an impossible task: to kill an ancient god bent on consuming the world. Armed only with a magical spear whose power she can't unlock and plagued by memories of a life she never lived, Sandrena must bind her companions together if any of them hope to survive. She must become Spear Mother.
The Fourth World is ending. Willfonde, the man destined to save it, is dead. Yet he left behind six clues in the hope that someone could finish what he started.
A group of young geniuses is tasked to find what the Magisters of the Church could not: an answer to the riddle of the six clues. Will they be able to find a way to save their world? Or is Willfonde’s final message one of despair?
When the Dark Tree comes, people start dying.
Only Mirek, a tired old guardsman in Suridruun, seems to be able to see the Tree and know what it portends. His sole comfort is that the Tree always disappears after a few days, taking with it the murderous rage it instills in the hearts of men.
But this time, the Dark Tree is not leaving without him.
