Book Details

Janette's Tale is the first book in the series 'The Order of the White Tower.' These novels are set in what might be Medieval Europe, and although classed as Fantasy-Adventure do not contain such creatures as Dragons, Elves, Dwarfs or similar beings - merely a touch of magic.

The action comes from the interaction between characters. There are no vast battle scenes with thousands of men dying in agony - however, there is fighting and death, heroes and traitors, unexpected friends and malevolent enemies.

As the title suggests, the story is told through the eyes of Janette, who for unknown reasons has become the target of assassination attempts and the persecution of the Grand Inquisitor of the Established Church.

A fast-paced read of some 70,000 words.
