or several generations the riverfolk of Selter Valley had lived outside the reach of the Shire Reeve. It was a remote place, surrounded by dangers on all sides. Trolls to the north and west. The nomads from the Steppes to the south and east. The Shire Reeve to the far south. And they were soon to learn that their greatest dangers lie within.
As the life of the riverfolk is challenged, the youngest Selter, Pottle, is given a choice by a vagrant found wandering in their forests. A choice that will set Pottle on a path that changes the course of history in Endleland.
On Their Own is the first novel in the Darker Path Series.
