Here there be "Spoilers"

A New Beginning

Many of my followers were aware that I have been working on a re-write of Quietus. I'm making that fact more official now. Quietus was an exercise in determination, a test that proved to myself once and for all that I am capable of not only finishing something, but of doing it well. It was a promise to myself that I kept. Now, it is time to improve on my design and my previous methods. I am adding significant amounts of content and affecting a large edit to the novel that I wrote for me. It will be redesigned and fashioned for someone else: you. I am doing this for everyone who wrote me with their ideas, their kind critiques. Everyone who came to me with suggestions and questions. I heard you. This is for you, and I thank you.

Heirs of Change is the title of this project, the new 'first book of the Midian Saga'. This project is trumping all other writing projects (with the exception of my Quarterly 3-Day Novel Challenges), though I can not give a realistic expectation for completion. When it is finished, I will resume work on The Fallen Shadow, Secrets of the Blood: Book I and also The Divine Guardian Chronicles: Book I if it does not win the 3DNC

Many of you have been following my progress for over a year, since I started my journey to write Midia with the first book Quietus. I began creating a book blog for every novel thereafter, which was well and good at the time but since has made it difficult for people to follow my current progress with anything. It has also made it difficult to for me to keep the proper blog(s) informed of news and events.

Thus, the One Blog, was born. I have decided to condense all of the blogs associated with the Midian Saga down to this location. No longer will I ask my fans to jump back and fourth between locations, all news, updates, and teasers will be posted here.

I am doing the same with my other writing projects. For personal updates and links to my other writing projects, you can always go to my main blog.

Thank you, everyone for your patience with the changes (which are far from over). When construction is finished, and everything is successfully moved over, everything will make a lot more sense.

Books and Timelines

"Quietus" Cover Description:
Eight centuries past, the mighty High Kingdom of Faiden was overthrown in one brutal stroke, and all of its subjugate kingdoms and territories fell into the grasp of a dark lord of sorcerers. For eight hundred years, his bloody and oppressive rule went unchallenged. However, deep in the heart of Faiden's wildernesses, the seeds of rebellion thrive.

Kenneth, a freak fae left on the doorstep of a human general, is torn between his dreams of peaceful neutrality and his foster father's aspirations for freedom and revolution.

Ferremor, a half-demon half-shadow master abandoned at a human orphanage, struggles to find his place in an unforgiving world of prejudice and cruelty.

Vera, a young princess whose family and life were destroyed by her own blood kin, must overcome the darkness of her past and awaken her destiny to cast out the sinister overlord and sorcerers ruling her kingdom.

"The Fallen Shadow" (10.10.10) Teaser from "Quietus":
The human rebellion against the sorcerer overlord ended in tragedy and flames, but General Kenneth Greywolf's trails have only begun. The dark lord he'd devoted his life to destroying has taken an inexplicable and sinister interest in his powers and origin. Fearful that the dark lord will find a way to exploit him to the detriment of Faiden, Kenneth prays for a way to end his life and remove the threat that he now represents.

As time passes, however, Kenneth comes to realize that his one-true opportunity to bring about the demise of the sorcerer lord may have just presented itself. Not understanding the odd but powerful link between himself and the dark lord, Kenneth intends to find a way to use it to his advantage. Perhaps exploring the powers he could never before control and uncovering the past he had never bothered to question will reveal a weakness the overlord seems desperate to keep hidden.

Did the swift devastation of Kenneth's army and his captivity pave the way to discovering an unexpected weapon that would bring down Faiden's dark ruler once and for all?

Having heard her kingdom's plea for help and freedom, Princess Vera becomes desperate to answer its call and earn her birthright as High Queen of Faiden. What she never expected though, was the price of responsibility. Master Wizard Wizkand Safreous had kept many secrets from her, only to reveal them on the eve of her journey north to visit the Oracle.

Faced with a loneliness and sorrow she had never before known, how could she hope to find the shards of the shattered Crystal of Life that would resurrect Faiden's long-dead protections? Why did the Oracle insist that only alone could the young princess defeat the sorcerer lord, and how could Vera face her own dear brother?

Even more disturbing than anything else, what had the Oracle meant when she'd warned Vera that she would lose to the dark lord?

"Cerulean Song" (10.10.11): Description/teaser pending.


Ferremor: Ferremortis Thanatos is the name and title of the ruler of the Sixth Realm, also known as the "Shadow Realm" and the "Pseudo-Hell". The Ferremor appearing in most of the Midian books (Starting with "Quietus"), was abandoned at an orphanage while a new-born and raised there until it burned down when he was 18. On his nineteenth birthday exactly, he ascended to the throne of Emperor of the Sixth Realm when Jessica Oaklanda slayed his father. He vowed to repair the neglected realm and restore the name of Thanatos after discovering the evil that his father had wrought.

Jessica Oaklanda:

Kayron Gleoson Aeroth: (see Kenneth Greywolf)

Kenneth Greywolf: Kenneth has one of the most complex histories of any of the characters of Midia. It would require several pages of explanation to even outline his past, so to summarize what was revealed in "Quietus": He is a fire elemental fae who was left of the doorstep of human general, Greygor Greywolf. When Greygor was slain by High Commander Sorcerer Lord Jellen, Kenneth assumed command of the human army and led a revolt against the Dark Lord of Faiden which resulted in the complete annihilation of his forces. He then fell into the hands of the Dark Lord. Further information will be added after the publication of "The Fallen Shadow" in 10.10.10.

"Poisoned Lineage"
By: Monica Caples '02
His father's shadow -- the curse,
Venomous hiss, in his name.
King, for better -- or worse.
Victim to Fate's cruel game.

Well of shadows with writhing souls;
Hall of captive spirits -- here.
Pit of torments, paying tolls
To screaming mouths, ringing fear.

Ferremortis, soft Thanatos,
The lord of shadows, sunlight sees.
Stronger he is, more than those --
Power-hungry, deities.

Chilling touch like threads of frost,
Outwards reaching for the fire.
Aching heart, lonely -- lost;
Distant freedom -- his desire.

Kingdom held in youthful hands;
Tortured souls belong to him.
Lightless. Empty. Haunted lands.
Future decision, by whim.

Mighty death-bringer, the sire.
Desolate. Heartsick, the son.
Shoulder'd the realm of the liar.
Unfair, still, duty done.

His father's shadow -- the curse.
Venomous hiss, in his name.
A King, for better -- or worse.
Victim to Fate's cruel game.

About the Author


Born in SanDiego California, one thing was evident from an early age: I lived to create. When asked at the age of four what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was "an artist and a writer". Dreams have come and gone since then, but that one wish never dwindled. Art in every medium was the hobby that everyone around me witnessed, but only those closest to me really understood my passion for fiction.

Many of the characters from the Midian Saga had their start in children's games when my sister, Becka, and I played dolls. Evolving through the decades since, they have taken on a life of their own in my heart. Even though they no longer resemble an eight-year-old's fantasy, I still feel as though I've grown up with the heroes of Midia. Though I knew I could never give the brave and often tragic events of Midia the justice they deserved, I had to share them with the world.

I hope that you enjoy this series of books as much as I have enjoyed writing and living them over the years. Please go out and acquire your copy of Quietus today. :)
