Overview

They are twins, brothers who have been separated by a foolish act caused by the jealousy of one for the other. Arlyn is sentenced to exile for a crime he did not do. Ayden has been left to live with the guilt that his actions have precipitated. Arlyn leads those who follow him into exile as he lives in the shadow of the Empire. Ayden allows the despair that knowing his actions has caused his Empire and family pain. This is their journey, one that spans more than a millennium. This is the story of the Empire that they serve. The friends and family that each of their lives touch, as they live their lives, and how those lives bring them back home.

Surrounded by mystery and legend the Elves live their lives shrouded in the natural power and gifts of the light that guards them. Is it really that easy? As we travel with them we find they too have their problems, dealing with the powers that drive them. Living with feelings they cannot control. They make mistakes. They have problems living with the results of those mistakes. They make choices that are not perfect. They seek ways to correct them. They fight to find who they are as their gifts would overwhelm them. These are the lives of the Legends. They make the history of their people real. These are their battles, their reality.

Meet the Author

I don’t really know what to say about myself. I have been writing books since before I became a teenager. Most are still hidden in the closet. I used to make up my own stories as a child, everyone used to act them out while we were playing outside. As a teenager someone issued me a challenge. I told her that her stories stunk, she told me to do better. My job growing up was to play guardian to my little brother, keep him safe. That meant I ended up getting into more fights than enough – makes sense now that I write about warriors. My family will try to tell you that I’m not innocent, I have a personality that keeps them on their toes. Over my lifetime and theirs I have earn several nicknames – The Godmother, The Evil Christmas Elf (comes from making my nieces wrap their own Christmas presents), Mistress of Ambush. My favorite response to them when they try to get me into trouble is just to look at them with a wide doe eyed expression and say “Moi?????” I have a seal point Siamese cat named Snoop, named after my favorite cartoon character and hobby. I have a “healthy” but small collection of Snoopy memorabilia. He is a character alright; never met a cat who can talk back like he does. He expects daily dosages of adoration on his schedule when he wants it – not when it’s convenient for me and he HATES snow. I come from a very large family (mostly brothers) and I could outrun the whole works of them (I’m the shortest!). It was called survival. This book has been in the making for a long time now. Over a half a year to write it, about the same amount of time to edit it, and probably about the same amount of time to get the art work and website! I have learned you can’t control the timelines of other people – Murphy likes to step in. So for now I am setting up good luck charms everywhere… didn’t know I had that many stuffed Snoopy’s. *Fingers, legs, toes, eyes and anything else I can crossed*

A novella that is as awesome as the other books in the series. It gives a lot more background on various characters from the full-length books. A must read if you like the Elven Chronicles.

Love this book. I really like the fact that M.A. Abraham puts these short stories in between to help fill in facts and events that have you wondering in the novel. Keep up the good work. Highly recommend this whole series.
