“I Am Not Orias”

“The Stars Are Drowning”

A map of Arai


Arai is a realm where magic is combined with technology and is home to the beings humans have told tales about for centuries. Some, ah, inaccuracies may have developed over the years. Adjacent to Arai is Taevalear, which translates roughly to “the Other Realm.” Humans just call it Earth. Arai and Taevalear were frequently traveled between before humans grew fearful and dangerous. The fae have not forgotten this betrayal and have looked at humans with scrutiny ever since.

The Dreamer and the Marked (Book 1) primarily takes place in Erothel, one of the twelve nations united under the guidance of the High Council of Arai. Erothel is by far the most powerful and excels in sea and air trade. Its only true rival is the neighboring country of Adonis.


Main Cast

Krystal is a perky and confident young woman who was raised on fairytales. She has developed a fascination for all things whimsical and unknown, unaware that she herself has Faerish blood running through her veins. Spontaneous in nature, she is driven by her unashamed curiosity.

Fun Facts: In the first draft of the book, Krystal was forcibly taken to Arai, and was also much more skeptical of the magical world around her. She was also originally meant to be part drād (dragon person), and was to learn how to transform into a dragon by the end of the book.

Javis is an earnest, albeit impatient, ambassador for Erothel’s government. He’s well-versed in the magic of holy-men, although he has little use for it anymore. Much to his shame, he’s picked up some of his father’s old habits and refuses to admit it.

Fun Facts: Javis’ job has changed many times over many drafts, first being a wizard-magician, then later a professor at a school for magic. His final profession as an ambassador was decided after he came to have a more integral role in the story.
