The Elemental Staff - Book One: The Spreading Darkness . . .by S. L. H. Tolley
Though prophecy had forewarned of events that threaten to embroil the Far Western Province, this is dismissed as
A land of peace and innocence, where mountains, valleys and plains have never heard the sounds of war, is invaded. While word of the invasion spreads, and people seek to escape, untested commanders lead untried troops against disciplined Empire soldiers.
Though prophecy had forewarned of events that threaten to embroil the Far Western Province, this is dismissed as the scratchings of a madman. Amid the spreading chaos, through an act of violence, he who was mentioned in prophecy is brought into being. Yet while prophecy had foretold of events, and that he will guide those who seek, first he must survive. Escape lies eastward, yet between east and west Empire forces seek to position themselves.
Shay is the eldest son of a death preparer. Both he and his friend Kevon desire to become soldiers. Adar is Shay's younger brother; and though he too wishes to become a soldier, fate has different plans in store for him.
