Running a website isn’t easy. At least not in the ‘big leagues’ as I’m trying to move into now.
I admin’ed a proboards roleplay site twice, we had a decent level of membership, about 20 people at most. Small little sandboxes to play in, both writing based, set in a particular world. But that was…
The Wayfarer Redemption is the name of two trilogies that were released as a single six-book series in the U.S. by fantasy author Sara Douglass, and subdivided into two trilogies: the Axis trilogy, and the Wayfarer Redemption trilogy. This sequence is followed by the Darkglass Mountain trilogy.
The background of the series is quite extensive, and the events featured in the novels stem from a series of events that began thousands of years before the beginning of the first book.
The first characters introduced are 2 unnamed women in mortal peril, one who is pregnant and one who has just given birth. The pregnant one is trying desperately to reach shelter during a snowstorm. She is an outcast of her people, the Avar because she has decided to carry her child, conceived during a festival and considered an abomination, to term. A group of demonic creatures, skraelings, watch as her unborn child brutally eats his way out of her womb, killing her. The monsters are delighted and decide to adopt the hateful child.
The second woman had given birth to an illegitimage child 2 days before, who she believes is dead. The child was illegitimate, and she is of high-born, perhaps noble, birth. After giving birth, she is taken and dumped in the freezing cold mountains to die.

The majority of Feist’s works are part of The Riftwar Cycle, a fictional universe featuring the worlds of Midkemia and Kelewan. Human magicians and other creatures on the two planets are able to create “rifts” through dimensionless space that can connect planets in different solar systems. The novels and short stories of The Riftwar Cycle record the adventures of the people on the various worlds.
It’s so hard to sum up such a large series in a few lines.
If you don’t know the books, read some of the references below.
If you do, no summary is needed.

These are my second favorite books, only Lord of the Rings out rank them. And only LotR has influenced me more. I love the Multiverse, the Eternal Champion, the Dukes of Chaos, the Runeswords. I love everything about these books. (And the endless books that are related.) Even though the newer additions have not been as good, I mean after the Dream Thief’s Daughter they just haven’t been the same, I still love them. I need to reread them but I am having a hard time locating books 4 through 6 of the original saga.
Blood and Souls for my lord Arioch! Huzzah Chaos! Yea!

Its New Years…wow that feels surreal. New Years Eve is a pretty important night in my life, seeing as how its my anniversary with my wonderful fiance. This year just flew by though.
I feel like I’ve grown so much, again, maturing in new ways, both as a woman and as an artist. I’ve gone deeper…
