If the translation does not arrive in time, all is lost. Timorn, a seventeen year old ranger travels the human towns, hiring out his services. A mysterious elfin woman hires him to take her to Kannon before DarkFall, and only he can lead her with his purple faerie eyes. The evil Valkyris is amassing an army to attack Kannon at DarkFall, insisting she possesses the prophecy. Sending her dark mage Dalannin to infiltrate the faerie, he marches his demon hordes toward Kannon and sneaks into the palace. Ethesian, the seventeen year old faerie daughter of King Ailon, plays the dragon lyre, a female magic. Yet recently, she has started having prophetic dreams as if she were male. When a lie is revealed, Ethesian is tasked to study magic she must master before DarkFall. Will Timorn reach Kannon before the Valkyris, and Ethesian master a magic she shouldn’t possess? Secrets and lies, revelations and wizardry, DarkFall is coming and so is the reluctant faerie who would be king. Learn more in the first book of the dark fantasy trilogy, The Seer of Grace and Fire.

We live in a beautiful world with nice people walking around the streets of happiness. But at the same time, we all feel that we are the only ones struggling with something in our lives. We are the only ones who are unhappy, and no one can understand us. We can feel lost in thoughts of how to get out of our own mess. We can’t stop telling ourselves that we are the only crazy ones who can’t deal with life. And that everyone out there is just perfect and everything in their lives goes just the way they wish. Only I am going through a hard time in life. And from the outside, it seems that I’m happy, but little do they know how much pain I’m dealing with.
