About the Book

The World of Havenor is an anthology of fantasy short stories that follows the trials of seven people who share one common dream—freedom from the evil clutches of the Vandorran Empire. Readers will meet Varna, a teenager whose mutation gives her the ability to manipulate metal through touch and focus; Rally, a navigator who was banished from the colonial forces when her superiors discovered that she is a lesbian; Brick, a former knight who leads a treasure hunting team to aid his kingdom’s poor people; Savannah and Sage, siblings who wield magical powers that reflect their respective differences; Ryder, a young explorer who searches for lost books of ancient magic spells; and Laetitia, the daughter of a freedom fighter who is about to realize her destiny. Through their exploits, readers will witness unique adventures unfold as well as timeless themes that they can relate with. Almost a hundred years have passed since the day the empire invaded their world. Through the decades, the Havenorians have lived in fear and could only struggle with oppression and abuse from the technology-armed colonists. Making matters worse is the impending arrival of Emperor Brutikus, who intends to make Havenor the new home world for his eight hundred million Vandorrans. Advising the emperor is Fesoj, the high priest of the Padsonian church of Vandorra. Fesoj rules with thousands of priests and clerics, waging a religious war against the Vivienite faith of the Havenorians, as well as their nonbelievers. As such, the Havenorians must unite and organize the fight for freedom before it is too late.
