The Search for Sunlei is Book II in The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby series, written by H.L. Grandin

This week, H.L. Grandin’s second installment in The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby series, The Search for Sunlei, was released. This exciting sequel to Grandin’s debut novel brings the reader closer to the intertribal tensions and international rivalries that permeated the American frontier directly before the French and Indian War and, against that backdrop, brings into stark relief Tyoga Weathersby’s struggle to thwart the inner demons that battle for his very soul.

Grandin’s sense of timing keeps the reader engaged not only with the main characters, but with an intriguing and unanticipated story line. A careful reading reveals that the author has captured the essence of the Appalachian Mountains in a way that creates a geographic “character” of sorts. The topography of the Ohio Valley and the river routes that were the highways of colonial America play a pivotal role in Tyoga’s search for Sunlei. From the tidewater of Virginia to the shores of Lake Ontario, from the Appalachian peaks to Albany, New York, Grandin brings to life the naked beauty of the land and the dispassionate ease with which it can kill.

H.L. Grandin's debut novel, The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby, has been a critical success with reviewers and readers. Yet, it is only the beginning. (click on cover to download on Amazon)

“Bringing Tyoga Weathersby to life has been a true labor of love,” Grandin said. “I answer many of the questions that remained open at the end of the first book, but left a great deal for the readers to reconcile on their own. The questions posed by the truth of the Promise are the same for everyone. But the answers that fit into your story belong to no one else.”

The critical acclaim for Grandin’s first novel caught the author and his publisher by surprise. “I recognized H.L.’s work as something special when I read the manuscript for The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby,” says Lauren Carr, owner of Acorn Book Services and Grandin’s principle editor. “I am more than pleased that others share my enthusiasm for his powerful writing style, and his creative use of the English language. I know that his readers will want to read more about the legend of Tyoga Weathersby.” H.L. is already hard at work on the third installment.

About the Author

H.L. Grandin grew up in northern Virginia along the banks of the Potomac River. A love of history and a deep, abiding respect for the natural world fostered a yearning to, if not understand, at the very least appreciate the secrets surrounding the heritage of the land and of those who walked upon it so long ago. Childhood years were spent roaming the Appalachian Mountains with his cousin, Paul, with whom he spent many a night atop Old Mt. Rag in Sperryville, Virginia, and canoeing the Rappahannock and Rapidan Rivers sleeping out under the stars and whispering about things that go “bump” in the night.

The Search for Sunlei is H.L. Grandin’s second novel in The Legend of Tyoga Weathersby series. The third novel, The Promise Keep is about Tyoga and Trinity Jane’s daughter, Rebecca Jane, and how she and her father changed the course of history. H.L. is also writing a book of short stories.
