Richard Tuttle sets the
stage for his fantastic world known as Khadora. There are several
estates in this land, which are run by different Clans. The first
book deals with two types of people. The cat people known as the Chula
and ordinary folk like us.
The story begins with a
war being waged between the Chula and the Situ Clan over farming
land. The Fardale sector of the Situ Clan needs to produce more
grain and tries to take over
the Chula’s land to meet their contract demands. However, the Chula
will not let that happen and kill off the leadership of the Situ
Clan in the Fardale Estate.

the closet land holding that the Situ has near the Chula. There
are other estates that are run by other Clans, but they are not

Marak does not succeed in Fardale there could be a lucrative
future for Lord Ridak’s corrupt Clan. What he does not know, is
just how much of a mistake he actually made by placing Marak in
Richard Tuttle has many
series available for you to enjoy. I began reading this on my
tablet pc and drained the batteries because I refused to put it

plugged in so I could continue enjoying the very clever tale
Tuttle has created.
I would not only
recommend this book, but suggest you read the entire series. Young Lord of Khadora is
only one of Richard Tuttle’s fantastic stories in the Forgotten Legacy series.
