CENTRAL LANDS/FREE REALM
When you first read about Melarandra, you are introduced to the Central Lands. In book 1, you learn they are small, and ignorant to the world outside their little kingdom. Two from this land will decide the fate of Melarandra.
They no nothing of war; peace is kept by the military. No unusual creatures exist in the land, so war is never mentioned, but changes lay ahead.
Magic is forbidden. The Order of Maget was created nearly 500 years ago to enforce this law. However, destroying those who possess magic, and magical creatures, has placed the world in peril. A prophecy told centuries earlier, spoke of the day when magic would need to be restored, or the world could cease. If done improperly, the world would be thrown in to chaos.
This kingdom once had two ruling families: Klayhern and Traven. Rule usually went to the first born child of the current king and queen. If no children were born, or all had died, the council would decide who would rule next. This all changed with Jeremy Traven. His true love was Elizanne Klayhern, and upon their marriage one royal line came into being.
A small band of elves make their home in a forest which lays on the eastern border. The Cyprian Forest.
In their sixteenth year, the twins sun and moon shall be separated by betrayal, but shall be found in the light.
Only when the night is restored will the evil be destroyed.
United they will return the night, but it must be done with the power that is sun and moon or chaos will overpower all.
