The Onyx Crown #1
Publication Date: January 27th, 2019
Genre: Fantasy/ Adventure/ Diversity
The Onyx Crown is an exciting foray into the world of fantasy. From the searing heat of the desert to the vastness of the savannah, it tells the story of Jorann, Gesi, and Sania, who grow up in a pre-medieval era of wars and successions, not fifteen years after the greatest king in the history of the continent, has been deposed and assassinated.
When the legendary warrior of Numerian history, K’Nan of Lofi is brought to a hunting expedition he is astonished to discover that one of the hunter’s slaves, Jorann, a boy of thirteen, bears the legendary mark of the Onyx Crown, a mark he’s been searching for since the death of his sworn king many years before.
Many miles to the east, Gesi is despairing of his life in East Rhydor as a commoner companion to Zoe and Zadeemo, the twin siblings of the tribal prince. Good enough to run their errands, but not learn the ways of nobility, he astonishes them when one day he shows the uncanny ability to match the famous knight, Jorell Boro, in single combat.
Deep within the savannah, Sania is working as an errand runner in the pleasure house where she has been raised since young. As usual, she is wreaking havoc on the customers with her practical jokes and tantrums—this time her antics will lead her on an adventure she may not be prepared for.
Journey with the trio as they discover their destiny and the meaning of the Onyx Crown.
