Water IS life; we all know this and no one disputes it. Yet, for the purposes of our Lore insight, water being life is taken many steps further. The first sacred site raised on a new world is the one in homage of the life-giving waters of the planet, called the Lifesource.
Here begins the final volume in the LORE series, with a scribe and his mission …
THE MASTER MECHANISM
Lore of Sanctum starts with The Nemesis Blade and in a dungeon of all places!
This is the only LORE book that begins with a dream sequence, but by now, as reader of the Lore Series, you know how important dreams are!

At a glance, this is Lore Of Arcana. The ice fields in The Dragon Circle; the monstrous wave in The Drowned Throne; the blue flame of kin in The Kinfire Tree; and the infinity symbol for The Infinity Mantle.
Lore of Arcana kicks off with THE INFINITY MANTLE. below is the Prologue and Page 1 – have a read 🙂
… and the story continues …
THE INFINITY MANTLE
Faffing around with Sanctum’s unicorn!
Wish I had coins with the Lore Dragon on it!
If you’ve read my bio, you’ll have read this:
Elaina lives in magical Ireland after leaving the surrounds of magical Table Mountain at the southern tip of Africa. Having lived in both Ireland and New Zealand, she now realises Ireland’s mists are close to perfection. When writing she puts into words her travels and dreams, because she believes there is inspiration in even the most outrageous tale.
Ireland’s ancient past has influenced her writing, gifting her work a Celtic twist, while the majesty of New Zealand has led her to mountaintops and extraordinary vistas. The vibrancy of Africa has had much to do with the inspirational side of Elaina’s work. The colours and diversity of nature itself fires her imagination.
Emphasis here, for this post, is Ireland and Celtic, because as St Patrick’s Day weekend approaches, the world is getting its Irish on!
Yes, indeed, as it states above, there is a decided Celtic element to my stories, from the Lore series through other standalone novels. You might have noticed that many images used to showcase the Lore settings are in fact of Ireland (and Scotland).
Soooo … if you’re feeling a bit of the luck of the Irish overcome you, then get yourself a copy of The Infinity Mantle to start your journey into lands green and misty, and magical and mysterious!
