Outlander Leander is a series of young-adult novels by Eisah. It's written in the first person POV and follows the main character, Leander, as he tries to become a famous treasure hunter. Though it technically falls into the sci-fi genre, the setting can easily be mistaken for a fantasy novel with the way it reads and looks.
The first book in the series, Flute of the Wind Queen, shows Leander dipping his toes into his first adventure after his father is deployed. He meets Ellora while searching for a flute left behind the Wind Queen. She wanted to find the flute as well, but she has slightly better connections. From there he gets sucked into the black market, where information isn't censored and rumors about treasure can be passed around freely.There he finds out the flute was probably stolen by enemy soldiers who attacked their country a year prior. Leander lives in the country of Nagdecht, which shares a border with Geuran, run by a hostile dictatorship.Leander travels to Geuran and meets the lackluster Geuranian soldier, Deckard. He finds himself in a position where he's forced to rely on Deckard, and in their time together he discovers Geuran is different from what he's been taught to believe.
