An invitation from A. E. Lowan to The Books of Binding


Welcome to the webpage for A. E. Lowan, author of The Books of Binding. Our series is a dark urban fantasy centered around the fictional city of Seahaven, Washington. At its core, it is a multi-generational saga about the importance of found families, our duties to one another, and the way our actions affect the larger world around us. Along the way we will meet heroes and villains and many characters that fall somewhere in between. Our stories encompass love, loss, joy, regret, humor, horror, the fantastical, the mundane, the best and the worst that people, whatever their degree of humanity, have to offer.

This site, like The Books of Binding themselves, will be growing over time. We invite you to come back often to see what is new in our world. There will be original fiction that is only available here as well as more in-depth looks into the people of Seahaven and the larger world they inhabit. The Books of Binding have been a labor of love for years and we are excited to share this world with you all, at last. Welcome to Seahaven.
