Welcome to the epic story of Maldene, a world that straddles the border between Fantasy and Science, where wizards and warriors can meet with visitors from other planets in their efforts to combat the greatest of all evils- an incarnation of Evil named Miro.

Maldene is a complete and unique world, with a story that takes you from one continent to another, through a variety of cultures, to sights ranging the whole of this vast world.  From the dangerous Funnel Storms common to the Equatorial regions, to the ancient urban areas of the mammoth Harbor Of The World, and past Nature’s greatest oddity, the never-ending Tedelnosho- The Great Whirlpool.
No mere epic, this is a story that goes far beyond. Across the planet of Maldene, to other worlds, and through far-flung dimensions, in a story that spans thousands of years in its telling.

“Tierno… has created a story that fills a huge, sprawling canvas…”
-Charles R. Saunders, author of the Imaro and Dossouye novels

The characters start out with simple enough goals, little realizing their ignorant bliss of the true nature of the real world will soon end. The world is not only far larger and far stranger than they or anyone else had ever thought, but the nature of true evil plots deeper than even the gods themselves might have ever feared. For even as a mysterious King recruits a band of potential heroes to assist him in fighting the dreaded Miro, the evil wizard himself has already planned for their eventuality… hundreds of years before they were even born. Worse yet, he is counting on their success.

A world complete, even with its own language, history, and a thousand little details to lend to the belief that this could be a real world. Upon turning the first page of Volume One, you are immersed in an alien world as real as the one in which you live. For this is more than a mere story, more than any epic you have ever seen or read. Maldene is in a class all by itself.

“A World beyond time… an adventure beyond imagining.”
-Anonymous reader of Maldene
