Jarred, recently come of age, is leaving the sun-scorched desert village that has always been his home. He sets out with a band of friends to explore the world - to see the mighty and beautiful kingdom of the north, a place he has only ever dreamed of - and to seek out the truth about his father, who came to the village a stranger and departed when Jarred was ten, never to return. So begins an extraordinary journey, a chronicle of jealousy and revenge, of wickedness, broken promises and justice, of discovery and truth, and of love. 'The Iron Tree' is the first book in "The Crowthistle Chronicles"; the second book - 'The Well of Tears' - will be published in November 2005.
