Discover Worlds of Adventure
There are many events hinted about in the Rise of the Fifth Order trilogy: Darag’s previous visits to the Archipelago and northern shore of the Sea of Sarketh, Niri’s arrival as a child to the Temple of Solaire, and how Ty ended up in Sardinia after his abbreviated apprenticeship.
Even though I finished writing the series, those prior events, maybe just those characters, keep pulling me back. Really, how did Niri end up being so brainwashed about the ‘weakness’ of being a Water Elemental, but also strong enough to stand up to the Church of Four Orders? What was Darag like as a ‘young’ Kith, traveling alone in the world with no friends and with so little knowledge of the abilities he would learn to control? Does that catch your imagination…? It certainly caught mine.
The discovery that Niri holds the gift of control over water at the age of nine is also what tears her from her family and home to be taken against her will to the Temple of Solaire. Life is bittersweet for the young Archipelagic girl as she learns the wonders of her abilities, while suffering from the pervasive beliefs held by the Priests and Priestesses of Solaire. Join Niri as she struggles with the loss of her parents, and meets new friends as well as her first adversaries.
When Darag is a restless teenager among the forest-bound Kith it has been centuries since any have traveled outside of the Forest of Falin. Yet he is driven to go. Despite the pull homeward of his soul bound to a tree in the forest. Despite that he is alone and looks so very different from those in the city. Despite the fact that he would be targeted by any Priestess or Priest of the Church of Four Orders if he is discovered alone so far from home. Join Darag as he fights a restlessness that drove him from safety and a pull homeward that fills his soul.
Ty abandons his apprenticeship to find himself destitute in Portoreayl. To go home would admit failure. So accepting help from a stranger seems the best, maybe the only, option. Even if this new ‘friend’ asks Ty to sail him and a cluttered little boat to the most notorious port in all of Myrrah: Sardinia. Is it any surprise Via’s next request involves something even less honest?
