Description - The Ring of Life by Jim Ross
On the island of Alkuai, humans, Elvian, Gelvian, Nivian, and Onivian alike are all recuperating from the Nivian Conflict, an ordeal five years in duration with a treaty signed merely twenty years ago. With Eldin's and Barin's father, Marik Kostic, off on his duties to the Council of Elders in Halic City, the brothers are left to manage the Elite Guard and maintain peace in the city. With that in mind, Barin sends Eldin, and Eldin's good friend, Darean, off past the city outskirts to investigate strange happenings. Walf Orlich sets off on a routine journey with Fylene Cylebryan. Their trip takes an unexpected turn when they stumble across Eldin and Darean in the midst of a battle with a fearsome spider. As Walf rushes to save the men, he uses a power he never knew he had. A kind thief named Silvre Ledor comes across a young beauty, Arianna, in the woods. Arianna has only the remnants of an explosion and a bracelet bearing her name tying her to her forgotten past. Her former life suggests something magical, but Arianna remembers nothing. As the unlikely friends unite in the city, they come to realize that its law keepers aren't what they once seemed. Why does the Elite Guard attack without provocation? Who is behind the unfounded accusations against Fylene and her mother? If justice is not being held, then who in the city is free from its wicked arm? About the Author Jim Ross is actively involved in his community, coaching multiple youth teams over the years.
