Legends of Areia
What is Legends of Areia?
Legends of Areia is a book series written by Brent Keath. Legends of Areia is described on Facebook as:
"Drake, prince of Areia, has had a lot of troubles in his life. His father, Lucien Vengar, became king after overthrowing a ruthless ruler, and then made the mistake of making that ruler's son, Kain, his most trusted adviser. When Kain betrayed Lucien and killed Drake's mother, Lucien was plunged into a deep depression. Taking advantage of this depression, Kain was able to slowly strip the kingdom away from Lucien, and eventually kill him.
Now, Drake, whose original goal was to become the greatest fighter in all of Areia, must put his swordsmanship and his power over fire to the test as he embarks on a journey to avenge his father's death. The supplies he once had access to are now stripped from him, causing him to be more alone than he ever has been in his entire life. Will he choose to continue on that path, with the fear that no one can ever be trusted? Or will he open his heart to others, leaving a vulnerable place for his enemies to take advantage of?
The Legends of Areia trilogy leaves the reader tied to the screen as the reader is forced to walk alongside Drake as he travels on his rigorous journey. Told from Drake's perspective in the first book, the reader is forced to face the twists and turns of Drake's journey as he finds them. The reader is left to constantly wonder whether or not Drake will be able to take the vengeance he so longs for, and whether or not this vengeance will eventually change his life forever.
So, prepare to become immersed in a world filled with mystery, power, symbolism, and adventure as you read through the Legends of Areia." (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Legends-of-Areia/543346582367547)
