Pele edited the summary of The White Tree Sunday, July 29, 2012.
Secrets don't like to stay hidden. In the kingdom of Mallon, all knowledge of the death god Arawn has been brutally quashed--but a teen named Dante has just found the dark god's holiest book.
Within days, Dante's attacked in the streets. Not by the city guard. By Arawn's own servants, long-hidden. Two things save his life: a big-mouthed bodyguard named Blays, and his own growing skill with the nether, the shadowy power that fuels the world.
But the attacks on Dante are just the first stirs of a larger threat. In the far north, Arawn's followers are rallied by a priestess named Samarand. Mallon is burning. To save their homeland, Dante and Blays will have to travel to a half-ruined city and assassinate the woman driving her people to war.

After stealing the holy book of Arawn, lord of the dead, sixteen-year-old Dante finds himself under covert attack by the cultists who want it back. Alone in the city of Bressel, he hires an even younger bodyguard named Blays, who will at least give the Arawnites someone to kill while Dante runs away. But Blays is as quick with his blade as he is with his insults. Matched with Dante's growing skill with the nether, the magic contained in the book of Arawn, they're able to flee with their lives. But the men of Arawn are stirring in the north, gearing for war against Dante and Blays' homeland. To stop the siege, they must travel to the foreign city of Narashtovik and assassinate the woman leading the rebellion. Instead, Dante becomes her student--and finds his loyalties strained to the breaking point. Funny in a way few fantasy novels are, The White Tree is an action-heavy tale of two people coming to grips with a violent, confusing world--but a lone friend may be all it takes to get by.
