The Vaetra Chronicles
The Vaetra Chronicles is set in Mundia, a world with sorcerers who can use the power of vaetra to perform magic. It is also home to the mundane; the common people who cannot use sorcery and who outnumber sorcerers nearly ten to one. Sorcerers have been outcast for more than 300 years after abusing their powers during the infamous Wizard Wars, but the mundane continue to keep a watchful and wary eye upon them.
The suspicions of the mundane are well-founded. Not all sorcerers are content to remain in obscurity and forsake the power and riches that accompany control of the land.
The tales of The Vaetra Chronicles are told in three volumes:
- Vaetra Unveiled (available now)
- Vaetra Untrained (available now)
- Vaetra Unleashed (Early 2014)
The Vaetra Chronicles is a swords & sorcery fantasy adventure series. If you liked The Belgariad by David Eddings, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, or Dragonlance by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman, you’ll enjoy these books.
Bored with his life as an innkeeper, Jaylan Forester takes a promising mercenary contract. The adventure goes out of control when he discovers that his client is being pursued by Sulana Delano, an intriguing Sword Sorceress from an enclave of sorcerers known as The Archives. Taught from birth to shun sorcerers, Jaylan must
overcome his distrust of magic when an unexpected turn of events embroils Jaylan in Sulana’s mission to recover a stolen mysterious artifact. Along the way, Jaylan learns that he too has the capacity to become a sorcerer. He must decide if he wants to explore his newfound abilities or resume the comfortable life he has always known. Fate has its own ideas about the path he should take.
In volume two of the Vaetra Chronicles, former innkeeper Jaylan Forester follows lovely sorceress Sulana Delano to the Archives College of Sorcery where he learns to use the magical power of vaetra. While Jaylan adjusts to life at the largest sorcerer sanctuary in the empire, Sulana investigates the clues left behind by their mutual enemy Paeter Thoron. When Sulana and her team are captured and held for an impossible ransom, Jaylan must decide if he will obey the will of the Archives Council and wait through the negotiations, or if he will risk everything in a desperate attempt to rescue the woman he loves.
