The Faroe Islands
We grew up with video games, comics, science fiction books and anime films. We are passionate about this project –Heirs to Empire are the books that we would have absolutely loved as kids. Now as parents, with a considerable amount of works behind us, we still cherish that sense of wonder. We want to share that feeling, and this abounding universe that we have created, with readers everywhere.
