The Souls of Aredyrah is a series of fantasy novels written for
readers from young adult to adult. Set in the island world of Aredyrah, the story examines individuals and societies caught in a web of isolationism and deceit. Once united in celebration, the inhabitants of
Aredyrah are now divided. An ancient cataclysm has claimed their histories and spawned religions founded on mythologies. But when two boys from opposing cultures meet, they discover some unwelcome truths. The
beliefs they have been raised on are nothing more than lies, and should they reveal them, they risk not only their own lives, but the stability of their world.
Four books are planned:
Book One: The Fire and the Light
Dayn and Ruairi, two boys from very different cultures, discover they
are bound to each other not only by blood, but by the prophecy that will either draw their world into enlightenment, or plunge it into further darkness.
First edition, October 2006, Ruadora Publishing
Second edition, February 2011, Ruadora
Book Two: The Search for the Unnamed One
The saga continues as Dayn and Reiv (Ruairi) face the prophecy that
tries to define them and a regime that seeks to destroy them.
Second edition, March 2011, Ruadora Publishing
Book Three: The Taking of the Dawn
Dayn and Reiv face more turmoil as the truth about their world threatens those in power, and the
bringers of that truth are named as heretics.
First edition, July 2011, Ruadora Publishing
Book Four: The Shifting of the Stars
The next generation of characters are surprised to learn that they, too, have roles in saving their
world, not only from Tearian oppression, but from a strange race of people displaced by an increasingly brutal land.
