Albedon - The Lands of the Motherless, is nothing less than this: a world "before," or perhaps "during." Not primitive, yet primordial. In which all living beings, unaware of almost everything and assailed by the necessity to survive, a minute after procuring some food, drinking from a spring and resting on an improvised bed, then have to decide how to use their resources, time, and life itself. One theory among many - imagination, of course, yet plausible in its own way - on how a world and its inhabitants might have been, or could be, not only elsewhere, but in another time, before so-called civilization had fully evolved. This is a story in which - on a distant hostile planet, inhabited by a people with their own language and consolidated rituals, but with few inflexible primordial beliefs that their actions respond to - the insistent and at times tragic plot of the events overwhelms its main characters at the dawn of a terrible tragedy, against a narrative background of a hybrid genre, between fantasy and adventure story. Out of this came a trilogy, The Chronicles of Albedon, whose first book called The Lands of the Motherless, has been published, in which "All has begun."
