Backli’s Ford: Book One of the A’lle Chronicles

Finally! Falcon Ridge Publishing has just released the novel Backli’s Ford: Book 1 of the A’lle Chronicles, by my alter ego, Emma Faraday. Here’s a little bit about it:

In the early 1700s, an A’lle generation ship crashed in the woods of Lower Canada. Survivors stumbled out of the wreckage to find French settlers working the land. While many of the colonists sheltered the injured A’lle, some reacted with fear and loathing. Two centuries later, nothing much has changed.

This is the world Constance A’lle, first A’lle investigator for Lower Canada, must deal with when she investigates the beating death of an A’lle boy in the small village of Backli’s Ford.

Set in 1911, Backli’s Ford follows Constance as she survives an ambush that would have killed a human, fights prejudice in the constabulary, and discovers a terrible secret that risks destroying the delicate balance that has endured for two centuries between A’lle and humans.

Contains the first chapter of KIRWAN’S SON.
