Hardcover Edition of Nightingale by David Farland Available Soon

The hardcover copy of Nightingale is coming out in a few days, even though the actual release date is not until March 2012.  However, you can "get it now" via mail if you order online at www.Nightingalenovel.com.

Read on for the synopsis of Nightingale with some of its many reviews and more about its talented author, David Farland.


Bron Jones was abandoned at birth, forced into foster care, and passed from home to home.  At age 16, he’s alone and friendless, a complete outsider—until he gets one last chance.  He's sent to live with a wondrous teacher, Olivia, who recognizes him for what he is: a "Nightingale," a creature not quite human.

Now, epic forces combine to pull Bron apart, stripping him from the only real parents, friends, and girlfriend he's ever known.  Bron must risk everything to answer the mysteries:  "Where did I come from?  What am I?  Who am I?”

“A beautifully crafted experience: stunning art, haunting music and delightfully subtle animated accents all accompany a riveting and deeply human story. There is (quite literally) nothing else like it.”
- Editionals

“A thrilling ride, with plenty of twists, action, and amazing characters.  I ripped through it.  Highly recommended.”
- James Dashner
New York Times Bestseller

“Farland is simply one of the best sci-fi and fantasy writers alive.”
- Orson Scott Card
Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award Winner
