The UnrememberedPaperback - 2012
Millennia after a god is condemned to live among the hateful creatures he has created, the magical veil entrapping the god and his monsters weakens, compelling bow hunter Than Junell and his companions to undertake a dangerous and secret journey to protect their people.
In The Unremembered, from Peter Orullian, rumors of threatened strife from ancient enemies reach the eastlands of Aeshau Vaalthe. They auger an onslaught of raids and destruction more severe than any since the legendary Convocation of Seats, a gathering unknown in the land for generations without number.
For an author's son, a true threat would mean taking up a legendary weapon with hands that have never touched steel;
For an expectant mother, it would mean learning the harsh toll the world exacts from its children, and the latent power of her song to ease their suffering;
For a simple huntsman, it would mean discovering his lost childhood, and facing the truth behind the words he is impelled to speak each time he draws his bow.
These three, aided by an exile who fosters orphans in a desolate waste, a rogue member of a powerful ancient brotherhood, and a woman warrior of a legendary race, will fight the past even as they face a dark future.
Because the threats are more than rumor . . . One of Library Journal's Best SF/Fantasy Books of 2011
