The Rootless

He appeared seemingly out of nowhere. They were calling him, the Rootless, because he wasn't a member of the Tribe, although he was almost like them. He traveled alone, with no clear plan and a voice in his head that was always there, a remnant of a distant and forgotten past. This story is set in the same universe as the Living Sword Chronicles.

A part-sequel of shorts, to the Living Sword Chronicles. I liked a lot.

I read this without having read the Living Sword first, but I don't think it cannot be enjoyed separately too, because it was really good.

You want to root for the Rootless but I'm not sure that you can. but you certainly want to know more about him and what he is and about the Tribe and their way of life, their beliefs etc.

Even though it was a short novella, y

I did enjoy this book (novella?), but I had some trouble following parts of the story. I found that I had to reread sections to understand them.
