The Pariahs

Two sellswords--a half-elf and a half-orc--find their war over before it even begins. But trouble is stirring on the home front, conflict which threatens more than just their lives.A novella set in the world of Ren of Atikala.Part one of the The Pariahs series.To Whom Ever This May Concern;I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…ADELA ARTHURInspired by J.K Rowling's Harry Potter

Humanity has rebuilt on the world of Velsharn, forging the colony of Eden from the ashes of Earth. On Velsharn's verdant soil children are born, alliances are made and for a time, peace reigns. In high orbit, the debris of an entire Toralii fleet stands as mute testament to humanity's sovereignty; their right to this planet is unquestioned.Above the TFR Beijing, now the centrepiece in a flourishing city, the inky void of space is eerily silent. As Commander Melissa Liao recovers from her ordeals, the universe continues its roiling machinations unhindered by her suffering.The end is coming, but before the final chapter in the Lacuna series begins, the stage must be set and the players must be in their places. So much work is left unfinished and Melissa Liao has more trials to endure before her pain is over.Before the end of war and steel, Eternity awaits.Book five of the Lacuna series.
