In this week’s post I’m going to be talking a bit about my book, The Lucin Stone. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s my upcoming Adult Epic Fantasy novel with multiple points of view. And guess what!!! It’s fucking awesome! Lucky for you, you’re going to get to learn a bit about why it is.
Since my book is so complicated, it’s really hard to squeeze everything into a few short paragraphs. So this week I’m going to be talking about the lovely Princess Valinia Noor.
First up, a little introduction:
The Lucin Stone is the first book in my Adult Epic Fantasy series, Wardens of the Crystallis. The first book takes place on two continents. One of them is called Haria. A race of people known as Naharians resides here. They are basically like humans but have longevity and powers. It is a diverse continent with many different races, except for one kingdom: Odinaty.
Due to Odinaty’s history, which is a BIG secret and I can’t reveal it here, only people with light hair and light skin reside here. They consider themselves the “pure” Naharians. To them any person with dark hair is the contaminated offspring of the most hated prince in Odinaty’s history. Don’t these towheads sound awful? Yep, most of them are, but this entire kingdom is vital to the story.
One of the protagonists, Princess Valinia Noor, is believed to be a reincarnation of this prince. She is the only one in Odinaty with black hair. She is hated, threatened, and shunned by her people. Her father, King Cassius Noor, is having quite a difficult time trying to change the views of his people. But with persistence he believes they will accept everyone just like the other nations in Haria. But will they?
Valinia doesn’t think so. But what the heck can she do at her age? No one would want to listen to a contaminated ink head.
So to forget about all that crap, Valinia spends most of her time inside the castle with her white tiger companion. He is her only friend. As a child she was curious like most children, but it was different then. She didn’t explore. Now that she’s older, she’s beginning to question all that she had been taught and wonders what lies outside her little bubble. Her father thinks she will be a good girl and remain in the castle, but little does he know, she doesn’t. And this is where she gets into all sorts of trouble.
The start of it is discovering the most hated prince’s diary, which only has her asking more questions and leads her to meeting an enigmatic young man from the enemy kingdom. The very home built by that same prince. From here, her life takes a drastic turn. Valinia can’t help but find this young man intriguing. His black hair is like hers. Since he’s from the outside world, he might just have all the answers she has been hungry for and more. Through him, Valinia discovers that the civilians of Odinaty aren’t the only ones who want her blood.
There you have it: a little sneak peek into, Princess Valinia Noor’s story. She’s one of 6 main protagonists in, The Lucin Stone.
