as he can remember, Logi has always lived in the mountains. But it wasn’t quite true, because his parents had a moving past behind them. They fled from a small town far from the mountains before he was born. They had already lost one child to the royal guards and had no intention of sacrificing more children for their prosperity. His brother Namir sometimes wallowed in his sleep and when Logi, awakened by it and asked him what was going on, Namir only waved it off. Fredold and Nadla, Logi’s parents, managed to hide a child from the guards, but only because they lived in one of the suburbs far from the center of the country. In doing so, they took a high risk of not only losing the child, but also losing their own freedom.
