Son. Warrior. Slave. Gladiator. There are many titles a person can obtain, and even more that one can rebel against. The Octavian Empire had begun its expansion through brutal warfare and extreme violence. Capturing those they deem worthy and slaughtering any who would dare resist. Its neighbors strain to hold back the will of Caesar and defend their own kingdoms and lands against the onslaught. For 200 years, the wars have never ceased. Millions have lived and died defending themselves against the Empire to no avail. Chaka never once believed that the Empire would try crossing the Jangwa Tupu, the largest desert in the known world, to strike against the Kingdom of Kado as well. Now, Chaka must find a way to defend his home against the invaders and achieve vengeance for everything the Empire has done. And maybe, just maybe, bring an end to the wars.
Pálida era aquella fría mañana, pálida era su sonrisa, pálida era su mirada, un suspiro sobre una habitación en silencio, el necesario… sus párpados semicerrados despertando lentamente, sus cabellos pintados de blanco, como un crudo invierno pintando la cordillera, su barba cobriza hurgueteando tímidamente sobre sus mejillas, sus piernas descansaban estiradas sobre la cama… El movimiento errático de su cuerpo y la transpiración sobre las palmas de sus manos, la intranquilidad… claramente la situación no le favorecía, ciertamente un hospital no es el lugar mas indicado. La angustia ciertamente lo agobiaba, lo agobiaba el temor y la incertidumbre de no saber si los rayos del sol cobrarían vida al día siguiente, lo agobiaban los exámenes sin una respuesta precisa, claramente lo agobiaba su presente y también su pasado, pero aquella era su realidad, distinta a la de aquellos tiempos cuando por sus venas la juventud parecía ser una eterna aventura, a su modo así creía entenderlo…
Aurelia Thorne has only known darkness.
Ever since they locked her away in a prison cell for being something they could not control, she has not seen the light of day.
Until she’s discovered by two of the most powerful beings in the universe; giving her the chance to discover herself. To be free.
Not a soul in the Great Kingdoms is prepared for that.
Aurelia will learn exactly what she is capable of, forging friendships and enemies along the way. And when she learns of the impending dark war across the land, she will risk it all to protect those whom she considers to be the only family she’s ever known.
That is, as long as she can overcome her own darkness threatening to pull her into an oblivion of unmasked power and rage.
Perhaps there was a reason she was locked up, after all.

The rest of the room was thrown back into chaos, screaming and yelling until Apollo’s voice boomed Hera’s name, holding everyone’s attention once again. There was once a time that Apollo had been a playful god, someone with endless wit, who enjoyed watching the antics of his family ensue. He had once been filled with joy. It is truly funny how the most radiant of souls can turn into the darkest at the occurrence of a single heartbreaking moment.
And so it frightened every single one of the gods in the room, even Hera, when he spoke his next words. “You are right. I am the god of truth and justice. And I will make certain that is exactly what I get.” A heinous laugh broke from his throat. “You should’ve kept Adoria somewhere you’d be able to keep an eye on her. Because now that I know you can’t get to her either, I will come for your head.”
With clenched hands and a hollow heart, Apollo disappeared from the hall, leaving behind thirteen very worried looking Olympians.
I would like to present the Prologue I wrote for the fantasy book I am writing, called Norvika.
Norvika is a fictional world set in a time akin to the Dark Ages of Medieval history. It is a Northern world, with a predominantly boreal landscape, sparse with human settlements. An empire has fallen, leaving behind a decline in human culture, and a world of quarreling families. A frail but willful Kingdom has been forged out of the empire’s remains. But as the chroniclers say, nothing will ever last.
John and Shila, two young nobles from a wealthy village, anxiously head out to the capital. A fox stumbles to safety, only to face greater grief. A father discovers his reflection in the clear water of the sea, an ominous sign of change.

A TOURNAMENT OF SORCERERS…
AND THE MISFIT WHO ENTERED IT.
Ever since she was a little girl, Lucy Hardtvelt has wanted to attend the same academy of magic her mother had graduated from, as well as compete in the same, famous Sorcerer’s Tournament hosted there every year. And finally, after having her application accepted, Lucy is jubilant to begin her first year at the prestigious Greidwhen Academy for Mages. In her first week, however, Lucy soon finds that, unlike her mother, she herself has little to no aptitude in the magical arts-struggling to keep even the most basic of spells from blowing up in her face. Now, having been given a harsh dose of reality, Lucy must find out if she has what it takes not only to survive at Greidwhen, but also the Sorcerer’s Tournament and its one-thousand contestants where the winner will be given the title of Champion Sorcerer, as well as the right to challenge the Celestial Mages-who are known to have been defeated only a handful of times…
