Read full description of the books:
Those who are lost face many trials and challenges. "The Marcella Fragment" is a fantasy novel from Anna LaForge as she tells of the story of the city of Pelion, a city founded by refugees of the Old Earth. As a maze is constructed to prepare the lost souls of the world, called Ernani, those faced with its trials will find insight to their lot in life, be it what they suspected or not. "The Marcella Fragment" is a strong pick for fantasy and science fiction collections.
-- Midwest Book Review
How would you rebuild civilization on another planet following the devastation of Earth?
A few lucky survivors of the destruction are transported by mysterious aliens referred to as "Sowers" to an un-named Earthlike world, in a future hundreds, thousands or tens-of-thousands of years from now. There, the transplanted population begins the long struggle back to civilization.
Over hundreds of years, the citizens of Pelion develop what is perhaps the most advanced and enlightened society on the planet. A prophecy that they hold dear, the Marcella Fragment, drives the Council of Pelion to bring ernani (lost souls) to Pelion to participate in a transformation that will ultimately lead to the enlightenment of the population of the entire planet. It’s a tall order, as slavery runs rampant, and the majority of the population is stuck in the equivalent of Earth’s dark ages.
Tyre of Lapith and Kara of Pelion come together, experiencing the pain and joy of their transformation, giving us in the process a great story of self-discovery and love.
In the tradition of fine visionary novels, The Marcella Fragment takes the reader into a world both familiar and strange, peopled by warriors, artisans, healers and slaves, incorporating science fiction, fantasy, myth, and romance.
I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next and why; who these people were, and who they would become. I was thrilled with what I discovered, where it took me, and what I became.
