The Champion Trilogy started my deep dive into The World of Aramatir.
While The Champion Trilogy does not include the first, full length book I wrote, it does include the first book I ever fully finished, polished, had edited, and self-published on purpose. The idea came to me in a dream, but the scene in that dream was edited and revised in the novel so that it is now completely different. The first draft of it was cut in half to create the second draft, and that draft was halved again. The draft I wrote for NaNoWriMo was the fourth draft. It reached seven drafts before I had it edited. By the time I was finished with it, I knew it was the first of a trilogy, and possibly the first in a world of stories. It has had a total of six covers, if I include a hand-drawn sketch by one of my daughters.
Champion in the Darkness
Enter Aramatir, a world of many kingdoms, where faith and magic war with one another.
What happens in such a world when the Champion doubts?
In the Kingdom of Septily, Clara has spent her entire life training to become a Sword Master. Still considered too young by many to receive a Sword of Power, and with it, the full title of Sword Master, Clara has passed her tests. The morning of her entrance into the Hall of Swords, she is kept waiting. A prophesy, long dormant, is bestowed upon her by Sword Master Dantor, her toughest teacher: she is to become the next Champion. But, to fulfill prophesy, she is kept out of the Hall of Swords and sent back to training.
Sword Scout Stelia has discovered the dark secret of the King’s Shadow Guard; they are Drinaii, the mercenary army indebted to the Dark Sisterhood of Sorceresses from the Southern Continent. Stelia, once a Drinaii Captain, fears her words will not be heard by the Sword Masters’ Council. She was once their enemy. Will they heed her warning?
In the nearby land of Aerland, the second prince of the realm, Adrian, has seen visions of the day he and his griffin partner Kryssander will save the next Champion. Are these visions true? And will he pay the price expected for someone he doesn’t know?
