Six years ago, Kevin wrote a fantasy-book in Dutch, for Young Adults. He’s now translating the book, one chapter at a time.
The first book – A Sigh full of Hate – is situated 400 years after the start of the Republic. The Republic is a big country, that’s spread all over old Europe. The capital of this country is London, where President Swanson rules from his gigantic, marble palace.
There’s one part of former Great-Britain that’s not under the rule of the Republic: the High Lands. That’s where the Highlanders live, a people that has lived separate from the Republic since the big country originated. Because of that separation, the Highlanders have fallen behind as opposed to the inhabitants of the Republic.
