Jerami De Lorenzo’s father, once the sovereign Duke of Comrandia, now dead and deposed, replaced by an usurper for whom Jerami’s hatred burns in the pit of his teenage stomach. On the run as an exile, flitting between the free cities at the mercy of a few supporters and a bevy of profiteers, charlatans, and yeasayers looking to guide Jerami towards what would profit their own selves, he must find his own path, always with his goal in the back of his mind– his throne, his country, his birthright!
The Path of Gold
Fourteen year old Jerami travels the rim of the sea with merchant Captain Darlana Cattair learning how to build an empire on the move, how to buy and sell favor and friends– but could he buy back even his own crown?
The Path of War
Fifteen year old Jerami travels to the Thratian borderlands where he joins with General Smith West’s campaign against the Garlish. He trains to hold the spear and shield, to swing the sword and the axe, and to ride in the saddle and command men, many more seasoned than himself in combat, but could he march an army to the heart of Camrandia to take his throne?
The Path of Fire
Sixteen year old Jerami, apprentices himself to High Pyromancer Drelsh of the Garlish Elite. In his studies he learns to call forth the spark, to tend the flames in his heart and bring forth the pyre, growing to a powerful Pyromancer and learning the ways of the Elite, whose motto “What’s Left Unburnt Endures” leaves no room for compromise, but could he burn his homeland to the ground in order to retake what is his by right?
The Path of Shadows
In far afield Baijon, seventeen year old Jerami stalks the edges of society, sharpening a slimmer blade than the knight’s sword– the assassin’s knife. Learning to dance the shadows at the feet of Baijoni Headmistress Chi, Jerami takes up the thieves picks, the poisoned blade, and the cloak of night. But could even the best aimed knife bring him to his goal?
The Fifth Path
Eighteen year old Jerami has made his choice, and now he journeys back to his father’s country for the first time in more than five years– forging a new path to take what was stolen from him.
