Land of Outcasts is a fantasy novel about Eli, who always has a plan of dubious nature, and his battle-unicorn partner, Sasha, who always wants to settle matters with her hooves.

Hiding from bounty hunters after a job gone wrong, the duo hope to be forgotten in the expansive swampland known as The Green. So when a woman named Marion offers them a job, it seems like the perfect payday to tide them over.

However, surrounded by a web of secrets and with a dangerous enemy following behind, Eli and Sasha quickly discover that bandits and monsters are the least of their worries. Even if they survive The Green, completing their job and finding a way to go home will be no easy task.
