Oh, lingering fractured echoes! Memories of things that were and events that failed to be are oft suppressed, only to return with haunting persistence. Concealed beneath the shadow of his heavy, gray cloak, the Fay gazed out the tavern window at the clear evening sky. His brooding thoughts were replaced with a subtle smile as he considered Stellewal's deliverance from the whims of the Elves, "I believe it is starting to rain." Resentment continues to build against Queen Kaliopy and her involvement with the Elfin Clans, and interchanging the words rain and reign become and secret code when a rebellion ignites within the Faerie kingdom of Stellewal. Concurrently, the apprehension surrounding King Pelleszor's Pixen lineage had divided the Eastern Clans into a civil war, inspiring a group of Elves to appeal to King Rinion's depraved and enigmatic brother, Skryshayn, for aid. But Skryshayn has a different agenda. Who is successfully manipulating whom, and who will rise victorious in Stelletwal falls? Stelletwal Echoes is the fourth book, and part V, in the Stelletwal series.
Vengeance & Domination
The result of every action yields consequences which can irreversibly turn the tides of life. Some work quickly with passion and perseverance, motivated by vengeance, entitlement and a lust for power. But there are those who are passive and slow to respond, fearful, victimized and doubtful of their worth. Both extremes can be deadly and the lines between right and wrong begin to blur. The truce between the Elves of the Southern and Western kingdoms has ended, forcing King Rinion and Queen Kaliopy into war against the Southern Clans. But just days before the battle begins Azuryne, the High Princess, is hesitant to commit Stelletwal's magic to the cause as the foundation of her faith is shaken. Princes Rylan and Chalorys find evidence of an ancient weapon which could alter events further, sending the twins on an adventure far away from their homeland. As Rinion and Kaliopy turn their attention to the needs of their people, an old foe resurfaces. But there are others who can justifiably lay claim to the throne. The struggle will not cease after the King is dead. "Stelletwal Vengeance & Domination" is the sequel and continuing saga, following "Stelletwal Deception & Illumination".
