The Souls of Aredyrah is a series of fantasy novels written for
readers from young adult to adult. Set in the island world of Aredyrah, the story examines individuals and societies caught in a web of isolationism and deceit. Once united in celebration, the inhabitants of
Aredyrah are now divided. An ancient cataclysm has claimed their histories and spawned religions founded on mythologies. But when two boys from opposing cultures meet, they discover some unwelcome truths. The
beliefs they have been raised on are nothing more than lies, and should they reveal them, they risk not only their own lives, but the stability of their world.
Four books are planned:
Book One: The Fire and the Light
Dayn and Ruairi, two boys from very different cultures, discover they
are bound to each other not only by blood, but by the prophecy that will either draw their world into enlightenment, or plunge it into further darkness.

Book Four: The Shifting of the Stars
In the fourth and final installment of the series,
Reiv and Dayn find themselves facing not only

With the king of Tearia on the verge of attacking
the peaceful valley of Oonayei, Tyym, a
Taubastet warrior vows to see his duty done. But
when Daynís sister Alicine walks into his life,
Tyym discovers a bump in his path. A demon is
approaching. Souls are at stake. Will the affairs of the heart have to wait?
