This box set features the first three books in in the thrilling new Urban Fantasy series, Rhuna. (Book 1: Rhuna, Keeper of Wisdom, Book 2: Rhuna: Crossroads, Book 3: Rhuna, The Star Child)
Set in the ancient, mystical past when an idyllic Atlantis-like civilization flourished, and its people had exceptional powers to transform elements such as sand to stone and metal to gold with concentrated mental energy.
This utopian Atlan Empire is rocked when one of its most preeminent Masters rebels and seeks to subvert the ideals of Atlan society. Roaming the countryside in a black robe, misusing his powers on innocent people, he becomes known as the dreaded Dark Master.
On a distant and isolated island on the fringes of the Atlan Empire, a young girl named Rhuna comes of age when she meets a man from Atlán and learns that her father was an Atlan Master who was killed in his attempt to destroy the Dark Master.
Journeying across oceans and ancient worlds, Rhuna learns to master her inherent mental powers, transforming elements and summoning visions by means of the Gazing of the Waters. Unlike her peers, however, Rhuna discovers she has an extra power, namely the ability to summon visions mentally, without incantations or powders.
The first book in this extraordinary Urban Fantasy series lays the foundations of the Atlan Empire and Rhuna’s world, and even when the Dark Master appears to have been defeated, secret and sinister powers continue to threaten the ancient Utopia.
Books 2 & 3 are set in Ancient Egypt, where Rhuna journeys on an assignment to investigate strange reports of activities associated with the Dark Master. She soon discovers an astonishing underground network of the Dark Master’s followers, along with the secret group of Atlans dedicated to stopping them. In the process of trying to carry out her assignment, Rhuna is confronted with enormous challenges that could drastically change her entire life and everything she has ever believed in!
Residing in Ancient Egypt for a while, Rhuna’s personal life undergoes great upheavals, but the appearance of her father, whom she thought long dead, gives her life purpose and direction. The skills to perform Astral Projection and similar advanced techniques equip Rhuna for what is ahead, when a neighbouring country wages war on all Atlans living in Ancient Egypt!
