It's a very exciting month for me - my novel "Heirloom of the Rusks" is going to be published on the 25th of May. It is the first one in a High Fantasy series set in the world of Ayrien, a place where numerous beastfolk races are dwelling, cohabiting the world with ancient and mysterious races such as elves, fay-folk and giants.


In the far north, there is a small country known as the Flower Valley, inhabited by a race of sentient rabbits called leporines. For centuries they have lived under the protection of the Rim Mountains surrounding them, settled their land in peace and built a prosperous agrarian society with semi-egalitarian traits, and soon the Midsummer celebrations will herald their sixth century of settling their land.


One not too much invested in that endeavour is Cinnabar Rusk, adolescent son of the matriarch Claudia - an overweight dreamer who prefers reading about ancient elvish myths and heroes. The time he doesn't spend reading he plots to impress Lyra Mársk, a sapphire-eyed juvenile doe with fur as white as snow...


On the eve of the midsummer celebrations, what must not happen does, as a mighty earthquake makes the Rim collapse, and their country is invaded by strafers, creatures born out of living metal, whose magic leporine valour and cunning cannot match.


Cinnabar finds himself torn between flame and family, as the world he had taken for granted is falling around him and he struggles to cope with the new reality.
