The planet Urth was once a green and verdant paradise. Powerful elemental beings with deep magic were stewards to this wonder, but not all could agree on its destiny. When gods war, it is the small who always suffer, and the First Great Age ended with a battle that nearly destroyed all life. To end the conflict, an Accord was put in place to preserve the balance, and the elementals withdrew their influence to allow new, less powerful races to grow and thrive in the world.
The delicate peace was destroyed, however, when a race of near immortals called the Kothites came to Urth. In the ensuing centuries, they have wreaked havoc on the planet, and the mortal races of men, elves, and other creatures are seeking a way to break free of the Kothite menace. Rumors of a Sleeping King, a powerful elvish elemental trapped in a spell, who may bring Urth back to health, abound, and many are seeking this treature— including a young girl who wants to thwart prophecy to save her own future and a young woodsman out to discover his lost past. Only time will tell if they can work together to save the beloved Urth they call home.
THE SLEEPING KING is the first in an epic fantasy series, featuring the best of the genre: near immortal imperial overlords, a prophecy of a sleeping elven king who’s said to be the savior of the races… and two young people who are set on a path to save the day.
