What lies below: Reaume


Lore of Reaume. as with Arcana, has more to it than the obvious. Yes, The Kallanon Scales is about dragons (‘scales’ gives it away!) and The Nemisin Star is indeed about a particular star, while The Sleeper Sword reminds of other legends where a sword awaits a particular hand, and The Dreamer Stones will enter dream territory.

But there is more:

  1. the dragon legend is about prophecy and time
  2. the star shining so bright on one night only is about connection
  3. to succeed, one needs a helping hand, even a hero
  4. enter the labyrinth of the mind … and heart


B.D.S.M :)

What does a Bluebell have to do with a labyrinth? This is Lore of Reaume in microcosm: from mythical Dragons in The Kallanon Scales to the Temple of Stars in The Nemisisn Star, and from bluebells in a strange place in The Sleeper Sword to Mazes of the mind, heart and reality in The Dreamer Stones, the pace is swift and takes you to the oddest spaces.

House of Valla

DANTIAN, DANTE and VARELIE are the last royals of the House of Valla on Ardosia, the world the Valleur settled beyond the Rift. Dantian is Vallorin and Dante is his brother; Dante is also Varelie’s father. They become aware that great darkness is about to descend upon them (Margus), but cannot prevent it. Varelie, in her dreams, calls to a stranger for help … and if you read this part of The Infinity Mantle‘s blurb, you may get an idea as to who she calls to:

‘Rayne meanwhile dreams of a little girl from another world desperate for help and cannot fathom how, until he meets the Guardians in the Great Forest of Valaris. When they reveal the presence of a tear in space, Rayne realises he is being gathered to fulfil his destiny …

And on Ardosia a little girl awakes from a nightmare, screaming, “It will all burn, daddy!”’
