**This book runs alongside books in the Heku Series and may contain spoilers**
The war with the Ancients, initiated by a sole Valle, led to decades of war. The death and banishment caused by the fighting deepened the distrust between those with Ancient’s blood. Once the Ancients were banished for eternity, the Old Ones were forced to work together to rebuild the factions and continue their plight to strengthen the heku, without the wisdom and power of the Ancients. Once the factions were again stable, most Old Ones chose to permanently retire to avoid seeing their loathed enemies in power.
The Valle quickly rose to be the strongest of the factions, until a lone mortal woman was found with powers that threatened to upend the entire heku species. Aided by her abilities, the Equites became the largest of the heku factions, leaving the Valle to struggle to keep from finding themselves obliterated. To save their faction, a beloved Elder was banished, and the Valle had to re-work their entire faction to compensate for losing an Old One.
About the Author
T.M. Nielsen doesn't necessarily consider herself an author. She's an every-day woman who had a story to tell. Never intending to let anyone else read it, she decided to put it all down on paper. What she ended up with is a fascinating tale filling books full of drama, adventure, action, romance, and excitement. When asked why she decided to publish, she stated, "I want for others to be able to forget about problems in life and to lose themselves in my world... the world of the heku. While I write, I laugh, cry, grin, gasp, and my heart races. I want others to experience that too." T.M. Nielsen is a computer tech by trade and lives with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She's the author of Amazon.com's bestselling series The Heku Series and the Dimensions Saga, along with a Heku Series spin-off book called Return of the Encala.
