Beyond the Gyre, the fourth and final book of the “Song of the Arkafina” series by Suzanne Francis, is now available in paperback edition from all good bookstores around the world, both offline and online.
Here is the blurb:
The island of Asaruthe has sheltered the Dawnmaid, Myriadne, for the past sixteen years, but Yr has fallen prey to a deadly plague, and it is clear she must leave soon. Katkin du Chesne and her daughter Poppy travel with Myriadne and help her free the Firaithi from Maggrai’s diabolical laboratory in the former Infirmarie on Isle St. Valery.
Meanwhile, Gunnar Strong Arm’s twin sons, Jakob and Lut, are feuding with each other. When Jakob carelessly gap shifts, he leaves a trail that Maggrai’s minions can follow back to Asaruthe. The death and havoc they wreak will send Lut on a mission of vengeance against Maggrai — and his brother, Jakob.
In the final battle, the Dawnmaid must find a way to converse with her enemies, the Angellus, before they attack the secret haven of the Firaithi with their unquenchable fire. What is it they have been defending through all the turns of the Gyre? The answer astonishes both Amaranthine and human alike…
The “Song of the Arkafina” series consists of Heart of Hythea, Ketha’s Daughter, Dawnmaid and Beyond the Gyre. Suzanne is currently working on more books and stories set in the same universe, including Wintermoon Ice, which will be available later this year.
