The Expert System
Handry has always lived in the village, where the ghosts guide his people in all things and the wasps of their tree sally forth to do their bidding. Cut off from his people after an accident, outcast, despised, not even recognised as human, his journey through a suddenly hostile world will lead him inexorably towards the secret of how his kin came there in the first place, and what went so badly wrong.

But there is something new and dangerous in the world, and the beasts of the land are acting against their nature, destroying the towns they once left in peace.
And for the first time in memory, the Ancients have no wisdom to offer...
