Tales of Aldura

The published Tales of Aldura arranged in time-line order.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the only story in the Tales of Aldura set in the Land of Ipsen on Aldura

Alliandre_AlduraAlliandre: The Halurdow conquer everything in their path, destroying and crushing the Kalieri wherever they find them. After conquering the Isle of Ipsen Watch, they are stopped by a magic shield protecting the Ipsen mainland. The key to this shield is the only survivor of the Halurdow attack on Island of Ipsen Watch: an old woman. A young shaman sits with the woman night and day, working to get the secret of the magic shield from her. Today, she will succeed.

Tears of a SeeressTears of a Seeress: If Father Tree dies so will all children and creatures of the Twin Goddess including the Njae. Arael’s Rest, the home of the Kalwyn Njae, has been under siege by the Halurdow for more than a generation. Added to the enemy, a plague has struck the Njae–a plague that is always fatal. If any Kalwyn Njae are to survive, they must flee their home. Seeress Illyani and her son, Glimrion, fight to save Father Tree and stop the Halurdow. Will they succeed?  

(Although set earlier in the time-line, I would recommend reading this immediately before or after reading Phaedra.)
