The Chronicles of Capherayna

The Chronicles of Capherayna alludes to the forests of the earth and the interstellar dust of the galaxies; the sum of all things that live in the quiet spaces between memory, meaning and matter; the layer of silence that underpins the universe and the sound that powers it.

The series traces the Lightbender’s journey over terrain and time, as he soaks up the immense pain of humanity. As a healer of the alternative arts, he has perfected the nomadic life but is petrified of intimacy and the settled life.

 

Safe Passage
Book 1 of The Chronicles of Capherayna

The old-growth forest and the borderlands of Capherayna are a mystery. So are its people, the Xaeltik community. They live in a pre-industrial time warp, unable to defend themselves from the dark forces of the modern world. In the heart of the forest, a vortex of death is rumoured to swallow the living, chew on them and spit out the pieces. The Lightbender stumbles into Xaeltik territory after days of wandering the forest. He is welcomed by a macabre sight that changes the course of his destiny. To save lives, he must let them die.

She is a soul without a body, a body without a soul. Together, they dredge up clues from a painful past that shapes their destinies in ways they are yet to comprehend.
