A cross between Tomb Raider and the Dune Series, The Chronicles of Xannia: Time’s Tempest submerges you in the forbidden Deserts, chases you with Secret Assassins, teases you with unrequited love, and pulls you deeper into a government conspiracy than you ever thought possible.
She risks losing her life above-ground, in the city she loves, and for what? possibly harming the innocent if she remains hidden below…
Trapped in a foreign Underground world, Taya battles inner demons and alienation as the man she promised to protect… to love… remains firmly planted in the government’s cross-hairs; hell bent on fulfilling his destiny to change the world. Constantly accosted by a fanatic sect of the Followers of Light, praising her as a false goddess in a religion she never truly believed in, Taya searches for something to return a sense of meaning and purpose in her life. As her skepticism for the impending coup grows so too does the Rebels’ lack of trust, undermining not only her sense of self-worth but their ability to overthrow a corrupt government.
