Book Description:


Darkness is covering the land. As the city of Mezrah grows with power and greed, the rest of the world can only stand by and wait for their inevitable destruction. The only hope against this growing power is an ancient prophecy that people have stopped believing in.

Then a star begins to fall.

Princess Kyla of Taramon stopped believing in the power of light the day her father died. Trapped in a city she does not care for, under the watchful glare of her mother, the queen, she struggles to accept her fate.

Then a star begins to fall.

Jethro has loved Kyla for as long as he can remember. Learning that she was to marry his cousin drove a wedge between him and the feisty princess. Watching her from a distance is a torture he is unable to free himself from.

Then a star begins to fall, sparking an ember of hope and sending two seekers on a treacherous journey into the unknown.


Danger surrounds the Seekers. Having already faced overwhelming odds, Kyla and Jethro discover it is only the beginning. Now they must face the power of nature itself.

Each day is a test of faith.

Two elements remain undiscovered. The light is yet to be resurrected. Dark forces prepare to descend upon the heroes of prophecy and they have one more power they must over come...their forbidden love for each other.

Each moment is a test of loyalty and courage.

In Taramon, Athra faces his own demons as he frets over the safety of his fiancée while trying to counter a dark evil that is brought to his doorstep. Treachery lurks in the shadows, forcing the future king into an action that could destroy his beloved city.

Through it all, they must cling to the truths hidden in the unseen.


The prophecy has failed. As Athra lies in the dungeons of Taramon with his defeated army, this is all he can believe. His city has been torn apart. He has failed his people and all that awaits him is an agonising death.

But the light has been found.

Ashan and his dark army proceed in gloating triumph. Safeer heads to Mezrah with Taramon's women and children, while the rest of his men remain in the northern city, forcing their prisoners to tear it down stone by stone.

But two sparks have been ignited.

Kyla and Jethro learn of Taramon's demise and, with the children, formulate a plan to rescue their people and bring an end to the overpowering darkness. It will take all their strength and every ounce of faith they possess...

But a furious light is about to be unleashed.

Unseen Excerpt:

Safeer looked behind him and noticed a group of motley men filling the corners of the room. Normally his confidence would have soared in this moment. He liked nothing better than an audience. But this lethal group of assassins preyed on his weaknesses. They were an intimidating bunch with markings on their faces, thick limbs and braided hair woven with pieces of leather and bone. Soulless eyes bored into him from around the room.
He turned, keeping his focus on Bordor and away from the curved weaponry that could inflict all manner of pain.
He knew his voice would shake if he spoke straight away, so he cleared his throat and narrowed his eyes.
“A month ago a star landed, outside of Taramon.”
“The northern city?” The man’s black eyes gleamed. “Interesting.”
“A short while later, two seekers escaped the city and are now on a quest to find the four elements.”
“You speak of the prophecy,” he spat.
“It is a myth.” Safeer raised his eyebrows.
“Then why are you here?”
“Because Ashan will not attack the northern city until he is sure that the crystal in Taramon Tower is not the diamond glowing in the north.”
“He has always feared that prophecy. Why do you revere such a weak king?”
“I would be cautious of what I chose to say. You do work for him, remember.”
“Only because he pays well.” Bordor’s smile was slow and malicious as he rubbed his thumb and forefinger together.
Safeer nodded, respecting the man’s reasoning. “He would like you to find and eliminate these seekers. Once they are dead, he will march on the city and take it as his own.”
“Why have you waited until now to tell us about this? We could have tracked and killed them weeks ago.”
“We thought our troops would be enough, but they continue to evade us.”
The expression wafting over Bordor’s face was enough to indicate exactly what he thought of Ashan’s troops.
“Where are these seekers now?”
“According to my sources, they are crossing the mountain pass to Doran.”
“The ice city?” Bordor scoffed. “They will not last long in that frozen wasteland.”
“But they might. You are our assurance.”
“We will not cross into the ice desert. My men are not prepared for those conditions.”
“Doran is an unguarded city that could easily be taken by men of your talent.”
Bordor’s eyes flashed. “Nothing about the Ice Palace or its frozen surroundings interests me.”
Safeer locked angry eyes with the hulking man. It did not take long to conclude that this was a pointless battle. He knew it would be. “Alright, fine. When they cross back over the pass, you are to finish them and take whatever treasures they may have found. I do not know what form the elements have taken, but Ashan wants them in Mezrah.”
Bordor pulled in a slow breath and expelled it. “And once we have done this?”
“The day we hear of their deaths is the day we march on Taramon.” Safeer mirrored the man’s dark smile.
