A Tanyth Fairport Adventure: Book 1

After twenty winters on the road, Tanyth makes one last pilgrimage in her quest to learn all she can about the herbs and medicinal plants of Korlay before settling down to write her magnum opus. Her journey is interrupted when she stops to help a small village and learns that much of what she knows of the world may not be quite as it seems.

In this work, Nathan Lowell blends wiccan tradition and shamanistic lore into a fantasy quest and creates a world for a new - if unlikely - heroine to explore. She learns that the familiar sometimes hides the fantastical and that, even when you think you’ve made your decisions, life doesn’t always agree.

Nathan Lowell gives me permission to enjoy "ordinary living" - doing what needs to be done, and finding pleasure in doing it with community members and familiar objects. Ravenwood is a good listen, as is South Coast, but I keep the entire Share series on my MP3 player for when ...
As with the Solar Clipper tales before it, the story captivated me and carried me to another world that I hated to leave. I look forward with anticipation the Zypheria's Call and The Wizard of Lammas Wood.
Lovely story. I started listening at the same time I started knitting a sock ... I'm nearly to the heelturn now, and looking for more good listening! I see there is mention of another Tanith Fairport ... but it has been 3 years. Still going to happen?
One of my favorites. Nathan Lowell does a fantastic job weaving a world around the listener (or reader). I've recommended his books numerous times.
I love them all but this is my favorite by far!
When I started listening to this book, I was tempted to stop listening because of its at first off-putting cliché setting, persistence proved to me that first impressions are not always those that stick. My patience was rewarded as the book 'warmed up' and I suspect that the pressure of ...
Ack. Apparently I haven't stopped in here for awhile. Sorry about that. Zypheria's Call will be out before the end of the summer. I'm just working up the final schedule now. Coming Soon! :)
Excellent book Nathan. I enjoyed your trader tales immensely also. Keep them coming.
Hi Nathan, Any news on the sequel are you going to have a Christmas Present for us? If so thank you. No Matter what have a great Christmas and best wishes for the New Year And Thank you again for all your stories I have just listened to the Share ...
Thanks, Lyonte. The book is getting released to print by the end of this month, and I'm planning on doing the sequel early next year. :D
