Age of the Anathema Series

Five bloodlines… three kingdoms… one law…

Long ago, magic pulsed through the very fabric of Eutopia. Now, it is a luxury enjoyed only by the Nobles of Schandrof… and the Anathemas. Considered unfit for healthy and safe societal fraternisation, Anathemas are fated to die by the Kuwaha Council. Their only crime: being born mixed-race.

An epic tale of love, sacrifice, and man’s hostility towards the unknown.

Map of Eutopia (Black and white version depicted in the books)

The stars danced through the sky, showering beautiful lights over everything. The Great Spirits watched in awe and wonder. They spun, and dipped, and dived, and swirled, until finally, they crashed into each other with a big bang!

Out of the explosion came worlds upon worlds, some so great, they rivalled the Great Spirits themselves! The Spirits all rushed forward to claim the worlds they would rule over, each being drawn to the ones most like them. The strong picked the strong worlds, and the dark spirits picked the dark worlds. The peaceful spirits took the peaceful worlds, and the warring spirits chose those wrought with chaos.

And when everything fell silent, and all the lights faded, in the peace and quiet of the most wonderful place, the Great Spirit, Pyxis, found Eutopia.”
