Catlorian I: The Savon’El
A young half elf finds himself on the road to Catlorian with no knowledge of how he got there, where he was going or even who he is. He will face enemies who are bent on his death, yet he doesn’t have a reason why he has been targeted. Unknown to him, others have also been targeted by this unknown enemy.
Sir Solothon Calendera, First Knight of the New Order of the Laurel, is on a mission to Catlorian to find the one responsible for the deaths of friends and the strange anger and rage with which he has been cursed. Huntsmaster Arantar Adenedhel, a ranger of the south lands about Laranthia, joins him in this quest after meeting him in one of the border villages along the way to Catlorian. Solothon, Arantar and a spoiled young elf will all find themselves harassed and attacked as they make their way to their destination.
Iaprene’ Anolin, a young Mage and cleric, has been given a quest to find objects an ancient foe seeks; an ancient sorcerer who should never have been released from captivity. She is joined by a young cleric, Melisande Dorn, whose anger and rage rivals that of Sir Solothon but is kept in check by her own caring nature.
This unlikely group of strangers must come together, defend each other and throw off their own demons to bond against a writhing evil and his minions. They must also unmask the Dark Master who has begun his secret war to destroy the world of Ta’el.
About the Author
R.L. Pool served in the US Army and traveled to several continents as a function of that service. He would, while away, write stories for his sons of the world of Ta’el and the challenges faced by the men and women of that world. After his retirement in 1988, he began work as a Metrology Technician for a branch of the National Institute of Standards Technology. He retired after over twenty five years, and after those same sons had served in the military and their children were grown with children of their own. One young niece found the old manuscripts written in pieces so long ago and brought them to her Uncle Rick’s attention once again. The series “Catlorian” is a compilation of those stories and is written in the hope that others will see the honor, valor and sacrifice of the people of Ta’el and take some solace at knowing that there are still those in this world who feel the same.
