Another post for the #WIPJoy Challenge! This time I have been asked to describe my main character(s). Yes, plural! ;) I have four main points of view in my first novel, Rise Of The Shadow Lord.
Highborn Sihara Dayel's deep tanned complexion compliments her brown eyes. She keeps her long dark wavy hair pulled up and out of her way. Physically she has never done a day of hard labor in her life. A fiery woman trying to constrain herself in the petite role which Elementian society has cast her to play, Sihara is willing to do just about anything to save her people.
Highborn Sebastien Vaugen's blonde hair nearly reaches his chin. His pale skin and bright blue eyes are common to Elementians of the Western Republic. You'll never find him without his top hat and ivory cane. Proud, opinionated, and fiercely protective of Sihara, Sebastien can make a formidable ally if you are on the same side.
Lord Jaden of House Calstein's most notable features are his emerald green eyes and sun-kissed skin; very few of of the Mineralites share these traits. He is genetically unaltered, and because of this he is reviled by his people as a Senken. Charming, calculating, and not afraid of danger, Jaden has a strong sense of morals and tries to hold the rest of his people to those same standards.
Awesome Possum has shoulder length white hair and copper eyes. As an Animalian Exile, he has anthropomorphic features such as a short white fur, a pointed nose, and a tail. Paranoid, foolish, and armed with little more than his quick wit and perchance for fainting, Awesome Possum stumbles his way through life trying to protect others from his curse.
Check out the introduction to the Rise Of The Shadow Lord here. Stay tuned for more updates!

There is definitely something for everyone, whether you like the light philosophical science fiction, the emotional coming of age story or the darker science fiction.
There will be spoilers ahead! You can't say I didn't warn you.

Last year, I rated The Wendy as one of my top indie reads! Now comes the sequel, The Navigator! Here is an excerpt from my review of The Wendy: "There is a difference between retelling a story and recapturing the essence which made it wonderful. This novel
manages to doboth." Read more
