THE WATER MAGE’S DAUGHTER
A NOVEL OF LOVE, MAGIC AND WAR IN VERSE
In a world controlled by harsh ocean wizards, men who forswear having children, a daughter is born to one who commits the heresy of falling in love. Banished, he raises his child alone until at the age of eighteen, she meets a young man fleeing a different, but equally unforgivable crime. While she swears vengeance for her mother’s murder, he must undo his sin against Nature and regain a lost kingdom. Together they change the world from the Law of One to The Law of Two.
The length of Homer’s The Odyssey, Odds Bodkin’s fantasy poem is composed in doggerel rhyme–eight syllables per line. There are 13,000 lines, give or take. It features three Canticles, or long songs, each composed in a different rhyme scheme.
Each Canticle features 30 or more Cantos, or chapters, to tell the tale.
