Empyreal Fate Blog Tour: Character Profile
Thursday, 19 July 2012
Full Name: Amarya Duravyn-wren
Special Gift: She is attuned to Nature's divine spirit - and the spirit inside herself - thus enabling an internal connection akin to magic
(If it's okay, I added an excerpt of when Darrion first met Amarya):
As he lowered his gaze, something from the corner of his eye snagged
Darrion’s attention. Jerking his head, he glanced closer at the forest floor and was
startled to see a young woman lying at his feet beneath the solid oak - nearly
camouflaged by the surrounding foliage. Motionless in sleep, she lay -statuesque.
Darrion held his breath as he gazed upon the woman, unsure of how to
react. Instinctively, he thought it best to leave her and continue silent on his way. But
something held him fast; his limbs were heavy. He found he could not help but
admire the strange contentment of the woman’s stillness.
The streaming sunlight cast a faint glow upon the figure’s delicate features,
revealing high cheekbones and a proper nose. Overflowing locks of bronze hair
caressed her petite frame, gently spilling about the surrounding grass. The woman’s
porcelain complexion, striking now that Darrion defined it as separate from the forest
shroud, accentuated the graceful curves of her careful body. She was almost godtouched,
an unclaimed wonder of nature’s invaluable possession. Ever still, she lay
all but exposed to the open world.

You must read on until the very end... No spoilers here~
Filled to the brim with forbidden love, an ancient evil, and a nation in disrepair, Empyreal Fate is a tale of riveting bravery and mortal corruption.
The land of Llathala lingers on the brink of war between men and elves, a dark history surrounding each race. Stirred by tensions of the land, a shadow of the past reemerges, taking precedence in reality and consuming the very soul of mans’ mortal weakness. Darrion, the son of a poor laborer, is ensnared in a hostile world, forced to choose between loyalty to his king or the counsel of the elves. Yet Fate has other plans in store, tying his course to Amarya, an elven royalblood of mysterious quality and unsurpassable beauty. But this forbidden connection incites betrayal from members of their own kin, marking them as traitors to the crown. In a land torn asunder, only Fate’s decree can allow such love to coexist with an ancient enmity.
Behold: A Llathalan Annal: Empyreal Fate – Part One.
