The Valley of Stars

Asha, a Star, is an outstanding seventeen-year-old student in the flawless realm of the Valley of Stars. Her life’s purpose is to bring light to Adama, the world below. The promise of her perfect noble future is shattered when one day, she is caught breaking the law.

Asha’s disgraceful crime is unforgivable and requires the ultimate punishment. She is thrown out of the Valley of Stars to crash down on Adama—certain death for any Star.

Against all odds, Asha’s execution doesn’t go as planned. Not only does she miraculously survive the fall but a mysterious Adamian comes to her rescue. Her saviour is a distrusting girl who has no intention of compromising her own mission for the sake of a fallen Star.

Asha’s idea of Adama is challenged as she quickly learns that this world is not as safe as the Stars are taught. With danger hot on their heels, the exiled Star and the guarded Adamian might find that they need each other more than they think.

The Valley of Stars is the first book in the trilogy The Rise of Penumbra. This volume takes Asha on an unexpected adventure across Adama, where wonders and dangers go hand in hand, and friendship and love make anything possible.

In the Land of Lost and Found: Losses

A thousand years ago, the God of Order created two countries: Cold and Hot. Separating them is an uncrossable divine border, preventing contact between the close neighbours. The God’s world and laws are simple—follow the rules and don’t question them. Tradition is above all.

Tal is a thief. In the freezing lands of Cold, fresh produce is scarce. Breaking the God’s law and risking his life and freedom, Tal steals this invaluable resource from Hot, the neighbouring country in the south. In the five years of doing this job, Tal has never been caught. But even his luck is bound to run out one day.

Noah is the king of Hot. His country is prosperous and easy to govern. Occasional troubles caused by the northern thieves are of little concern. The king wants for nothing, except for one missing piece—he is yet to find his soulmate. After waiting for so long, Noah is on the verge of giving up hope. In the Land of Lost and Found is a love story that brings those who can open the eyes of their heart to their happily ever after.
