Literature: Boundary's Fall
is a self-published fantasy series
by Bret M. Funk. At the time of writing, it consists of four volumes: Path of Glory
, Sword of Honor
, Jewel of Truth
, and Forge of Faith
750 years ago, in order to end a war that had raged for three centuries, the Four Races combined their magical might to raise the Boundary. The Boundary is both an impenetrable barrier against magic (including magic-users) and a virtually impassable range of mountains - and it trapped the Darklord
Lorthas and his armies in the northwestern quarter of Madryn so that the rest of the world could know peace for the first time in generations. Though it was known that the Boundary could not last forever, this knowledge was kept from the un-Gifted
, and in time, all too many of the Magi forgot it themselves.
14 years ago, the Prince and High Inquisitor of Ra Tachan, Tylor "the Bull" and Salos "the Scorpion" Durange
, were defeated by the armies of Alrendria and exiled to Ael Shataq
, the land beyond the Boundary, through the only known pass.
Now, the Boundary is weakening, and the Bull and the Scorpion are free and leading an army of soldiers and ShadowMagi. A fourteen-year-old boy named Jeran Odara and his new best friend Dahr must evade the Bull's clutches and bring warning to King Mathis of Alrendria... and that is only the first of the challenges they must face, both from a world on the brink of another MageWar and from within themselves.
