In anticipation of the upcoming publication of The Path to Misery: Book I in the Hallowed Treasures Saga, I thought I would introduce you to the Thirteen Kingdoms in which the book takes place via a three-part blog series.
Centuries after an apocalypse, the Princess Eluned leaves her father’s kingdom in search of adventure and romance, but instead finds herself accumulating a band of compatriots for a divinely-led quest to reunite the Thirteen Hallowed Treasures, which they hope will bring peace to a land on the brink of war.
In the process, she transforms from the self-absorbed girl that begins the journey into the strong woman she must become if she is to fulfill her destiny.
I will begin with the Triquetra Alliance as most of the main characters are from these Kingdoms.
