Aubrey The Protector

An orphan raised and trained as a warrior-guardian by the Sisters of the Chalice, she must learn to trust and depend on others to face a grave danger.

Delvron the Shade

Prickly and studious, he rose above his station to study magic with anyone who would take him on as an apprentice. He longs for the respect and admiration of others that power can bring, but he might be very much in over his head when faced with true and ancient power.

FELD the Youth

A teenager who made some mistakes. To escape the mistreatment of his father, he did a favor for some unseemly folk. Can he escape from the consequence of his own actions? Can he turn his life around, before it’s too late?


Mentor, teacher, and spiritual guide, she is an example to all. She has seen many battles and protected the town from danger her whole life. When the call comes, she must pick up her sword again.

Seriously, I can’t wait to see more installments in this series!
