Ascendant’s Tear

Legend of Caemeris Series

Corrupted diarch of Caemeris, Baachelaus, with his gaoler Voloc, breach the world of Arglethium. They are pursued by Assumpta, co-ruler of Caemeris, who has been doomed to an eternal quest to set Baachelaus free.

A prism forged in the last days of Caemeris from the tears of Assumpta is hidden on Arglethium by the custodian Norbu. Lusting to seize control of the power within the prism, Voloc possesses the despot Ranik and sets the Kingdoms of the Middling lands to war to seek out the sacred tears.

Assumpta calls the ancestors of the first tribes of Arglethium, Ange Tsaed desert dweller, Gildas Gol exiled warrior, Kado heir to the Drax Empire and Sa-Tuc assassin, to fulfi l a covenant made in the beginning days with Norbu to protect the prism.

Suspicious of the gods, but with no choice as their world spirals toward annihilation, Ange, Gildas, Sa-Tuc and Kado are drawn into the mysteries of the prism, and an ancient war raging since the dawn of the first stars.


As the paths of these adventurers lead to the sacred grove, primal forces of nature swirl around them. Readers who like their books brimming with symbolism and fantastic creatures will find a panoply here!

The prism of caemeris, a repository of ancient power, is lost and the custodians of the second age of light seek it. In their search, they breach the world of Arglethium and bring with them Voloc, dweller of the void. The lands of Arglethium are catapulted into war as despots are woken to battle and ancient sentinels turn their gaze to the custodians and Voloc.

Ange, of the Eastern deserts, along with Gildas of the Northern tribes, Kado of the Drax Empire and Sa-Tuc assassin are found by Ascendant Diarch of Caemeris to help her seek the prism.

In the midst of their struggle to survive, Ange, Gildas, Kado, Sa come to the realisation that the world around them is not what they thought it was. Thrown into chaos and awakened to new realities, they must draw upon strengths which lay hidden in each of them. Their unlikely alliance grows stronger knowing that they cannot escape the bonds of duty placed on them by Ascendant.  Who are their allies? Are the Sentinels enemies or servants of the custodians and Voloc? What is the prism that Ascendant seeks and ensnares them in the ancient quest?

The Legend of Caemeris series appeals to the reader craving for large scale adventure and epic struggles between the individual and the world. Its sense of grandeur and universal themes of lust for power, courage, and desire to find meaning from the turmoil delves into the minds of the characters beyond the battle to the choices which face them and the chaos which comes when old truths are shattered and only doubts remain.

Similar in its ambition as Tolkien and Herbert, Legend of Caemeris brings the world of Arglethium to life and asks what would you do if you were given the power to rule light?

Book 1 tells of the arrival of the custodians and the finding of the descendants of the first tribes of Arglethium. Book 2 Voloc’s Reign continues the story.
