Sometimes, when part of a man is lost, the rest seems in ruin.
Sometimes it’s the unknown that binds him together.
By sliding the tattooed ribbon of runes across his skin, Boruin may chance upon powerful spells, but not knowing his own magic makes death the surer bet.
When a mute boy reaches up and moves the runes, casting a spell as if born to the strange magic, Boruin finds the first lead to his blank past in thirty years. Discovering the truth of Boruin’s forgotten youth will not be easy. His wraith guardian swings between moon-driven moods of lust and rage. The Fae courts are cracking mountains, stirring up ghosts, and waking flying serpents to find him.
Each spinning of the tattoos is a dead man’s gamble. The runes will unravel him, but before they do, Boruin is determined to find who wrote this magic across his skin.
The Unmade Man is a novel set in Pileaus, a complete fantasy world brought to life through fiction and art. It has its own varied geography and natural phenomena. Each continent includes multiple countries, legions of creatures, and several unique races. Each race and region have a flourishing culture with singular customs, religion, languages, histories, technologies, and styles of dress.
