The Flame Before Us carries the story another few years onwards. Starting north along the coast
at the city of Ikaret (modern Ugarit, in Syria), the story follows several inter-related groups of people as they
cope with the sudden destruction of the city. It has been published by Matteh Publications and
is now available at online retailers.
Conflict and commitment in the shadow of a city's downfall
The raiding ships have come before, but this time it is different. This time the attackers are coming to stay.
The great kings and their vassals collapse as the newcomers advance.
Walk with refugees, migrants, and defenders of the land alike, as they struggle to create a
different way of life beside the ruins of the old. Can alliance, commitment and love survive the turmoil?
The process of change
in the hill country that began in In a Milk and Honeyed Land is picking up pace now.
