“Do you have the courage to follow the Brhunye Taal?” After Gideon’s disastrous failure four years ago, King Ammoron and Lord Damon are more powerful than ever. Under their tyranny, the despairing plight of the people of Lindfel has never been greater. Gideon failed to heed the Brhunye Taal, and those he loved most suffered terrible consequences. But once again, the Far-Seer Sandivar reaches out to Gideon, and calls upon him to lead the rebellion against Ammoron, and restore the Old Law and justice to the realm. This time, not only must Gideon listen to the Brhunye Taal, but he must find the courage to follow it, even when it seems to ask the impossible. For what hope is there against the might of the king’s armies, and the fearsome Krijgen warriors? Can Gideon overcome his own doubts and lead a people—can he rise again? Author Franz Busse continues the epic fantasy in the second book of the Lindfel Chronicles. In this sequel to King’s Fall, Busse completes the story of Gideon’s struggle to hear—and follow—the Brhunye Taal, in his struggle against the forces of Darkness. Busse draws on scriptural themes set in an engaging adventure tale that will entertain and inspire readers young and old.

Franz Busse is the author of King’s Fall and King’s Rise (the first two books of the Lindfel Chronicles). Franz was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He inherited a love of science from his father (who had a physics background) and a creative streak from his artist mother. High school physics was a formative experience for him—seeing the power of mathematics and science to design and build things that worked was intoxicating. For as long as he remembers, he has also loved the sky and everything in it; the clouds, the moon, stars, airplanes, rockets...they all fascinated him. So, he went to MIT where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering. Engineering became a way of thinking that permeated all aspects of his life: a pragmatic, rigorous approach to solving problems and making things better. He then went on to Stanford University, where he earned his Ph.D. in 2003, also in aerospace engineering. His dissertation was on using GPS to navigate formations of satellites orbiting the earth. After completing his degrees, he went on to a successful career at a laboratory working on technology in support of national security. However, his career tells only a small part of who he is. Franz has always loved sports and the outdoors—he played soccer in high school, and was the MVP of the varsity rowing team at MIT his senior year. He enjoys karate, and when he has the time, loves to camp and hike. But Franz claims that the most important aspect of his life is his discipleship of Jesus Christ. At age nineteen, he served a two year mission for his church in the Netherlands. There he served people in need and taught people about Christ’s plan of happiness. Since that time, he has served and taught in many different capacities in his church. He especially loves teaching: one of his greatest joys is the endeavor of transferring truth and light from one person to another. His creative side has manifested itself in many ways over the years. He enjoyed art, design, and drafting classes. Even as a child, he would make up stories in his imagination during his walk to school. So it was a great delight for him when he began to tell bedtime stories to his own children. In 2007, he began writing in earnest. His first project, the Lindfel Chronicles (King’s Fall and King’s Rise), was based on themes and characters he had been creating for many years before. He currently lives in Acton, MA, with his wife and five children.
