This story was an idea that stuck with me throughout my entire high school career. Back then I could not write it in a way that I was satisfied with the story. So I kept it on the back burner as I continued to improve my writing ability.
Three orphans living on an island on the outskirts of an empire birthed from an apocalypse. Their entire world shifts as their entire village are massacred. This leads the orphans with the guidance of their mentor to leave the island and head to the mainland. ALARIC has prior knowledge of the continent and takes charge of the small party. Alaric does everything in his power to protect his companions while simultaneously harbouring a dark secret. FLORIAN is confused by the entire ordeal as he is swept away on a journey. ASHE has always wished for freedom and is excited at the prospect of seeing the world.
I would like readers to know that this is my first foray into the epic fantasy genre.
