Aethera

The Aethera Trilogy is epic fantasy, in the sense that the story, as it stands, is becoming more epic as it takes form...

The first draft of book one came in at just under 120,000 words. The re-write is 180,000 words. It is currently out in the big wide world seeking an agent. Book two reached the same length as the first, and the third has opened with a powerful surprise.

Book one's test readers felt the initial draft didn't give them enough time to get to know the characters before their lives turned upside down. So the current version and book two spend more time really getting into the key characters lives, and heads.

It helps the reader to understand why they love them....

and why they may come to hate them. And vice versa.

But...

With three Aethera, and only one Vesper...

Which of them is the prophesied Saviour of Realm?

In a world long ago divided into three, three brothers lose their power, and the darkness long held at bay begins to seep into the edges of the worlds and into the dreams of those who may be able to save them all, The Aethera.

A mage and a queen. A warrior and a king.

Blue flame and crystal tears.

A darkness creeps across Realm.
