Book 1 – Rise of The Witnesses
About Rise of The Witnesses
Rise of The Witnesses is the first book in the fantasy series Albrene Chronicles. It is full of adventure, mystery, violence, corruption, and a bit of romance. This novel sets the stage for many of the events that will take place in the following four or more books.
It is currently a work in progress. My goal is to have the first draft completed by the end of 2020.
Ayela is an orphan girl living in the largest city of the known world. Betrayal and tragedy plummet her life into chaos as everything she has is ripped away. With everything on the line, she is tempted by the God of Desire and must choose between the easy solution of his dark magic and the possibility of death. Will she survive and resist his dark temptations? Will she find the love she had always dreamed of? Or will something sinister force her down dark paths to an uncertain future?
Magic in Albrene
Unlike many fantasy series, magic in Albrene is approached from a more logical perspective. Magic has laws, much like physics have laws. Some can be broken but at great cost. I created these laws to prohibit myself from falling into the trap of "magic will fix it," and to eliminate the question "why didn't they just use magic."
I have set several goals for myself in 2021 as represented by the progress bars below. Here's to completing and surpassing them.
