The Chronicles of Era: Whispers of Redemption Book 1
The Chronicles of Era: Book 1 is an epic fantasy of my own creation–over the span of several years!
The story will introduce readers to a world where mankind had a vision to create a paradise fit for gods. Mankind ruled in the City of Heaven for thousands of years before the Adversary struck down the paradise and returned humanity to harsh and brutal world. The survivors rebuilt civilization but their past was reduced to myths and legends.
Hundreds of years later, three youths–Seth, Sidrich and Caitleth–are caught between the conflicts of the Imperium’s armies and the Joshian Nation who are struggling to keep their way of life. All the while, secret agents are searching for a means to rewaken the old gods and to return mankind to its rightful place in paradise.
