Background Information on the World of Opteria
A Prequel to the Fantasy Series: The Creator’s Egg. The series is an epic fantasy full of quests, journeys, mystery, intrigue, adventure, war and excitement. The series is set in Opteria, a planet where birds (avians) evolved to a position of dominance in place of the mammals on Earth. These avians are bipedal and have arms with well-developed hands, as well as wings. They have full powers of speech and are fully as intelligent as humans. They are indeed, the angels of Opteria.
This prequel provides much of the background information that is essential to every fantasy lover:
- An overview of the series
- A summary of the basic story
- Details on the setting for the story and the evolution of the races on the planet
- Myths, Legends and Prophecies
- The Opterian Calendar
- A full color map of the world
- Some detail on the geography of the planet
- The history of the Avian Wars of Antiquity
- The Opterian military hierarchy
- Summary tables on Opterian life forms
- A diagram of a bird, naming parts of the body that are relevant to character descriptions
- A cast of Book 1, in order of appearance, that has links from avian character descriptions to a gallery of images of equivalent Earth birds
This prequel is not essential to your enjoyment of the series. But, if you are a true fantasy lover, you will want to add this book to your collection.
