Brann has come a long way since his days as a galley slave. At Lord Einarr’s side, he journeys to the capital of the Empire to warn the Emperor about Loku and his depraved cult.
But Loku already has the Emperor in his thrall, and his scheming ensures that Brann is enslaved once more. He is put to work in the fighting pits deep below the city, where a man might escape with his life, but not his soul.
Brann emerges bent on revenge, determined to stop Loku. But first he must fight to recover the man that he once was, to become the hero he is meant to be.

At the darkest hour, when all hope is lost, a hero is born.
When Brann is wrenched from his family home after witnessing its destruction and the death of everyone he holds dear, he is thrust into a life of slavery.
Miles away, a deposed and forgotten Emperor seeks an instrument to use in his bid to rise once again to power. Ruthless and determined, nothing and no one will stand in his way.
Brann might be the Emperor’s tool, but heroes can be forged in the most unlikely of ways…
The Siege of Markethaven: A Tale of Old is a modern free-verse poem telling a traditional story. It is related to the Seeds of Destiny trilogy.
A thriving market town is wakened from the complacency of peace and prosperity by the arrival of a savage horde before its crumbling walls. With a depleted guard contingent more suited to the parade ground than the battlefield, a captain of the guard whose days of action are in the faintly-remembered past and a ruling council consumed by self-interest, the town appears doomed.
When a mysterious young hero and his small band of hardened warriors sail into this hell, the townsfolk find new strength to fight for their lives, but will he bring their salvation or lead them headlong into their annihilation?
The Siege of Markethaven: A Tale of Old is a narrative poem set in a mythical past. Written in a more free style than the epics of the past but devotedly retaining the themes of an inspirational hero, the use of metaphor and the struggle of good against evil, the poem aims to offer storytelling that has survived the ages to a 21st Century audience.
In short, The Siege of Markethaven was written in a style that just felt right for it, and with just two aims in mind: to entertain and be enjoyed.
Andy contributed to this, along with Clark Brooks, Rob Hines, Tony Noland, L Bushman, JJ McConnachie and Winonah Drake. The book was conceived, edited, produced and written by Carrie Bailey.
