Raised by adoptive parents in a small community, Narfi simply doesn’t fit in. Shocking violence and tragedy force him to flee the only life he has known, pursued by agents of the Chancel Of The Crooked Cross; religious zealots intent on destroying the indigenous Celtyth culture.

All he has for guidance is the last instruction his adoptive father gave him – a clue to help him find his true name and destiny. It points him west to the lands of the Celtyth.

So begins a perilous journey of freedom gained and lost; suffering; enlightenment and discovery. On his travels, Narfi confronts friendship and loss, finds his true name and encounters a lost people, who teach him about his magical heritage. With their help, he makes his way into his homeland; back to a world and family he never knew. Yet he finds himself in the centre of a storm...

I R Harvey was born in Cwmbran, Monmouthshire, but his family left Wales when he was a child, following his father’s redeployment to Teesside. Growing up in rural North Yorkshire, he attended school in Northallerton. After working as a Residential Social Worker for 16 years, he re-trained as a primary school teacher. He taught for 12 years before becoming a deputy head teacher and safeguarding officer. I R Harvey took early retirement in 2017 to pursue his passion for writing.  The Mabinogion, a book of Welsh history, myths and folklore was the inspiration for this story.

    Harvey has created a fascinating world with magical details and complex characters. The story is an excellent journey and would make a great film. Hope there are sequels!

    Brilliant read. I R Harvey takes you on a journey of great intrigue and peril through his imagined world. Pitting indigenous culture against quasi-colonialist religious zealots makes this a rare fantasy novel that resonates with modern culture and the current climate. His vivid description allows you to really envision ‘Narfi’, a well-rounded sympathetic protagonist, and share in his experiences. Will be recommending it to all my friends and family, whether fantasy fans or not.
