The Wanderer's Curse

The breathtaking conclusion of The Astreya Trilogy

Lindey takes Astreya, Cam, Damon, and Arneb to Matris, only to discover that much has changed since she left home. Suspicion and distrust surround the men.

Astreya and Lindey begin to resolve their difficulties, but a gossipy old man on a horse misrepresents the past, and all five must flee aboard Arneb's boat.

Once outside the shelter of the hills surrounding Matris, the group discovers that the bloodthirsty Men of the Sea are searching for their navigation stones, and they think the Village where Astreya was born has them.

Astreya must arrive in time to avert a massacre. When the great black ship reaches the headlands of the fjord, Astreya must confront the worst and the best aspects of his inheritance before he can unravel his past and lift The Wanderer's Curse.

…keeps the suspense going as the many mysteries surrounding the back history of the characters are revealed to bring the series to its final conclusion.
-- David Hayes,

…so rich and deep and intricately imagined… Hamilton has continued, expanded and masterfully completed the complex and hauntingly beautiful tapestry… A great ending to a great story, by a great story-teller.
-- Spider Robinson, Author of Very Hard Choices
