Astreya: Book 1. The Voyage SouthArmed with his father's knife, a riddling notebook, and a bracelet with a green stone, Astreya sails south with an adventurous fisherman, hoping that in the world beyond, he can find his father and discover the mystery of his enigmatic gifts. They voyage to a village where all the inhabitants have met a grisly end, and fearing this may be the work of the legendary sailors cursed to sail forever, they dare the open ocean. The journey is dangerous, and Astreya must navigate through betrayal and an escape from slavery before he finds companions he can learn to trust: Gar, an itinerant painter, and his assistant, Lindey, who can take care of herself with the occasional shrewd blow from her quarterstaff. Astreya is just imagining a new destiny with Lindey when an unknown man from the past alters the course of his life, forcing Astreya out to the sea again.
