Craving the adventures of his past life as a colonial knight, Rildning joins an expedition to seek allies among the natives of the New World of Pemonia. When the mission goes awry, Rildning learns the true objectives: gold and blood. Betrayed by the empire and haunted by his past, he pushes on in search of a lost companion.

Rildning struggles to survive the rugged wilderness only to be taken captive by natives. By choosing to abandon his old life and enduring the natives’ trials, he earns their respect and finds a new purpose—and even love.

As the imperial legions march on the natives’ capital, Rildning discovers an ancient secret: a prophecy that could bring the Old and New Worlds together, or forever keep them at war.

The Depths of Redemption is the first of a double prequel to Lords of Deception. It is the only Earthpillar novel written in the first person, in the form of Rildning's journal. The second prequel is A Light in the Depths.

The Depths of Redemption: An Earthpillar Novel


"Refreshing and Reminiscent of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld"

“This decision to explore the universe by spreading out histories and characters is refreshing and reminiscent of Terry Pratchett’s’ Discworld… Within the wilderness of the New World Fuchs has created a fantastical environment that is beautiful but when it becomes dark, it becomes dark!... The number of creative elements within this novel are staggering. Though judging by the debut novel, this is not surprising.”
