About the Book
The Crown of Light: An Ancient Legend. A Lovestruck Heroine. A Journey For Peace.
The fourth novel in the award-winning Ari Ara Series, The Crown of Light, combines epic fantasy with peacebuilding in an unforgettable adventure. It is only available through our Community Publishing Campaign until Spring 2022. Pick up your copy here.
In the jagged peaks of the Border Mountains, Ari Ara revives the ancient legend of the Peace Force, gathering friends and strangers to stop violence and prevent war. With the Way Between guiding their footsteps, they set out to wage peace. Before long, an unexpected threat makes them take drastic action.
Mysterious raiders are attacking the villages, burning homes and terrifying families. Fingers point to the secretive Paika. After all, their clans have survived centuries of war by double-crossing and backstabbing everyone else. But when young Finn Paikason is caught spying on the Peace Force, he swears the raiders are imposters. Ari Ara wants to believe him, but can she trust him? She can’t be certain – especially since this boy with storm-tossed eyes might be stealing her heart.
Stopping clan feuds and thwarting bandit ambushes, Ari Ara and her friends seek the truth amidst a web of lies. Old enemies come back to haunt them. Friendships are strained to breaking. Tensions heighten between the two nations. When the Lost Heir is taken hostage, the Peace Force races to solve the mystery before the sparks of violence erupt into a raging inferno of war.
