Mauric Dystergrove is one of Revantine's best Writers. On request he writes entire worlds, great spells or simple protections. Until a stranger arrives in town, his skin covered in an unknown script, on the run from a dark past. His desperate search for a secret book convinces Mauric of one thing: nothing will ever be the same again — not even if they manage to prevent the unimaginable disaster which threatens to destroy the world.
The Scrypturist is a convincing and mature fantasy debut by an award-winning Dutch author with an original voice, rich language and convincing characters. Inventive, tightly plotted and with ingenious magic — The Scrypturist is the first part of an epic tale about a world on the brink of a revolution.
