“What else is there?” Shu-Giri asked in reply, his emotions rising. “What else, but love and kindness, and a chance at life—real living, with all your vitality? If you offer anything less than that, you are doing an injustice to your people. It isn’t just for the Jzamneh to believe this. It is for everyone. All the people of Manastaecies need love and gentleness. Everyone on Lorata wants to live a good life. If there is anything beyond Lorata, why would that need for love be any different? You cannot offer your kindness to just those who are like yourself, or only to those who follow your customs.”

This is part of a scene from book two, in which Shu-Giri (who is from Jzamneh) was just criticized by someone from a different part of the continent of Manastaecies for speaking so highly of love.  This was his reaction.

I love this part because the writing just flowed.  It is passionate and deep, even coming from one of my most playful characters.  What he says really hits home, and not just for the fantasy world.

Stay tuned for more information on the Legends of Lorata series.

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.
