The Learned Owl will be hosting Dan Arman on July 25th from 1 to 3pm. Arman will be signing his books Riding a Black Horse and Flying on Borrowed Wings from his series Night Maiden.
In Riding a Black Horse, people live in a land devastated by plague, invaders and lawless brigands where magic has all but disappeared and the masses live in misery and depravity. But a strange young maiden appears with a powerful gift and a promise to restore the rightful king to the throne of Orloins and a magical order to the world. Meanwhile, across the sea, an ambitious inventor toils in his workshop, developing a device he hopes can end the war between the totalitarian regime of the Fiorian Empire and kingdoms of Orloins. However, he begins to worry that the technology he's developing in the wrong hands could be used for evil ends.
