If you've come across this post/page, you are in for a treat! The information shared here is not anywhere else on the internet. I thought about sharing it to the Writing Cave, or Wattpad, or to social media in general, but it felt appropriate to create a post here.

All of the covers you see in this here are the final artwork for every book in the Xiphis world I've been building. Additionally, this page is full of SPOILERS for the Xiphis world. If you do not mind being spoiled, continue reading.
Developing Regina's character and her story, the first third of it anyway, was so simple and I thought I had struck gold. I mean, every author goes through the "shiny new toy" phase when writing a new story. And working on the Xiphis fantasy world while the real world was in complete chaos, the escapism this story brought me was so amazing. I still go through my outline and all of my notes, all the time, and I still have hope. Hope that there will be a completed story for readers to enjoy.
The Heir of Xiphis is a coming of age story about family and friendship, and discovering/accepting oneself. Readers are going to LOVE Xanathael, Xana [Zay-nah] for short (a play on the name Nathanial, with an angelic flare). And yes, tissues will be required when you read the second part of the story. I know this because I was sobbing when I wrote out a very surprising, unplanned chapter. Sometimes the actual plan needs to be changed around.
The Reaper's story is dark and sad. There is a lot of death and heartache. And it unintentionally will end on a cliffhanger because it really does lead up to events in the main Xiphis story and contains spoilers for Regina's rise to rule.
I think the reason I even took the leap of faith with this series is because Elise Kova is a huge inspiration for me and her Air Awakens world has a bit of an influence for why this series is so big.
