The Scrolls of Nef
a novel by
Gary Glickman
A novel of such fierce beauty and dire tenderness....a Wisdom Tale for the ages, and for all refugees of the heart longing for the welcome of Home.
Penny Key, MFT

At last! A novel of heart! This is an enchanting, enthralling book that, by some magic of storytelling, seemd always to be speaking of my own soul.
Bonnie Friedman, author of “Writing Past Dark”

Glickman weaves a psychological insight and compelling imagination into a story full of powerful incident and rich characters. I didn’t want the book, his insights or the tale to end.
Robert Perkins, author of “Talking to Angels,”
& Into the Great Solitude



Who are the Godlians, and why are they trying to conquer the world?

When Godlian clerics begin secretly burning the treasured remains of the ancient library of Nef, both the old and the young must do their part to save the only records of the old wisdom. The old king's brother, master translator of the scrolls, must teach his dream-reader great-nephew whatever skills he can absorb; the orphaned daughter of a priestess must use her prize-winning gifts as a singer to rally an exiled people; and a young warrior prince must learn from an abbey of fugitive witches enough wisdom to create and lead a rebellion. Whether hiding in the northern mountains or on the southern archipelago sea, two royal brothers must learn to embrace each other's opposite natures in time to outmaneuver a brutal fundamentalist empire.
