Age of Ku

Epic Fantasy Trilogy

The Age of Ku is an epic fantasy trilogy that tells the story of the second coming of the Age of Ku – an ancient shadow that hangs over the world of l’Unna, and which threatens once more.

The story follows three protagonists with three separate conundrums: responsibility or freedom; love or lust; fear or existence.  They are companions, close, but set against a backdrop of impending disaster, they are driven irrevocably apart.  Can they overcome their challenges and help avert the impending disaster?  Or will they succumb to the forces upon them?

Set in a medieval fantasy world, the plot is complemented by political and religious interest, and a cast of intriguing peripheral characters:

  • A legendary hero with questionable morals and an absence of human qualities;
  • A shady interventionist with unclear allegiance and surprising reach;
  • A young traitorous leader who inherits the rule of his land too early;
  • A priest with clouded means;
  • A military general with a severe grudge and remarkable capabilities.

Dusk is coming, and with it, the second Age of Ku.  The world will never be the same again.

Fear’s Union: the Coming of the Age of KuFear's-Union

Description: Dusk is coming, and the world is not ready.  Anejo is a member of the ruling family of Ahan, with responsibilities to match, but all she wants is to follow her soldiering life.  Xen pursues an illicit relationship which is against the rules of her institution, but the emotions run too hot to control.  And Aran is fighting simply to remain: as a soldier, and as a human.  Can they take command of their personal tribulations before the second coming smothers their world?    Or will they be tripped by the web of political disjoint.
