Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When thieves find an abandoned child lying in a monsters footprint, they have no idea that their wilderness discovery will change the course of history.

 

Cloaked in mystery, Auralia grows up among criminals outside the walls of House Abascar, where vicious beastmen lurk in shadow. There, she discovers an unsettling-and forbidden-talent for crafting colors that enchant all who behold them, including Abascars hard-hearted king, an exiled wizard, and a prince who keeps dangerous secrets.

 

Auralias gift opens doors from the palace to the dungeons, setting the stage for violent and miraculous change in the great houses of the Expanse.

 

Auralias Colors weaves literary fantasy together with poetic prose, a suspenseful plot, adrenaline-rush action, and unpredictable characters sure to enthrall ambitious imaginations.

Synopsis:

Marked by an elegant and introspective style of adventure storytelling, "Auralias Colors" combines classic fantasy with a suspenseful plot, adrenaline-rush action, and unpredictable characters, creating an enchanting new series promising rich parables about freedom and responsibility.

Cheri Clay, December 7, 2007 (view all comments by Cheri Clay)
In the heart of the woods two Gatherers Krawg and Warney hunt for berries for the House of Abascar. The sound of crows catches Krawg’s attention. Krawg decides to investigate and he finds a small baby by the river’s edge placed gently so no harm may come to her, in a giant footprint of a creature they do not recognize. They sneak her back to the other Gatherers careful not to attract the attention of duty officers and beastmen. And there she becomes the ‘River Girl’ and is raised until she becomes old enough to let them know that her name is “Auralia”.

Something about Auralia is different – magical even and all who know her love her and are enchanted by her. She seems not afraid of man nor beast but no one knows where she comes from. Some think she is a Northchild but others claim that can not be as there is no such thing. She weaves magical colors from things she finds in the woods and presents the Gatherers with gifts of her many colors and a cloak that she wears that just seems to come alive with color.

But the colors are illegal banned by the Queen who has gathered everyone’s treasures and stored them in caves under the castle but strange the Queen herself has disappeared, leaving the prince Cal-raven to be raised by the king Cal-marcus. But the beauty and enchantment of Auralia seems to have split the king and his son. The King feels she’s dangerous – rebellious even but the Prince feels she may have come from the “Keeper” which is also forbidden to speak of. But the King feels the Prince’s enchantment may also interfere with his plans for the Prince to marry Stricia, Ark-robin’s daughter. But what role is the mystery of Auralia to play in the Expanse and what is the Expanse? Enter in and meet ale boy and the part he must play, Ark-robin whose duty it is to protect the king and the prince, Scharr ben Fray the tales and magic he teaches Cal-raven and who has been banned by the king from Abascar and the Queen and find out why she has banned colors.

So if you’re a fan of fantasy such as Lord of the Rings or J.R.R. Tolkien than you’ll love Auralia’s Colors an awesome tale for young and old alike. Enter into the fantasy world of fangbears, river wyrms, bamble pigs and ride upon varns. As the dream world unfolds you too will be swept up and enchanted by the marvelous imagery of “Auralia’s Colors”. The author Jeffery Overstreet takes you into an awesome dream in this his first fantasy novel that is not only colorful but flows so smoothly you will not want to awaken.
