Dwyn is a young man in the small, isolated northern town of Manicouga, son of the Minstor, and betrothed to marry the beautiful Kessa in just a few weeks.
Mael is shepherding the remains of his own people from Land’s End, a village much farther north, chased out by a terrible storm that destroyed the town.
Both are trying to find their way in a post-apocalyptic world. When they meet, their love may change the world, and the course of history.

"I love what the author did with the legend, keeping the main elements true but playing with it just enough to make a satisfying story. I just adore the ending and it would almost be worth going through the end of the world just to get where they are... A very satisfying read all round and one I can heartily recommend."
"This novella packs a lot of depth into its pages and you don't really realize how much until you've finished reading it and think about it a little bit. I hope to see more from this world by the author... I highly recommend The Great North both for the author's writing and storytelling skills as well as the story itself. Check this one out now!"
