In the lands of Avelion everything is about to change forever.
A world dominated by Five Elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Metal, with peoples and races devoted to them, according to their good and bad characteristics, it is threatened by evil enemies and dark forces that are moving forward between the Duchies of the Plains and the Kingdom of Bamur.
The young Riel, who has always been devoted to Water, is destined to fight: she will become one of the Five Carries of the Legendary Weapons which have to the power of the Elements. Thus begins an adventure between Elemental Ladies, fairies, bloodthirsty kings, elves, wizards, dwarves and pirates, through places between imagination and reality, divided into Celtic myths, atmospheres of the East and corners of Italy.
A road that will lead her and the other protagonists to fight against enemies, but also to face friends and even themselves, to discover their true nature.
Only by fighting together, supporting and accepting each other, can they find a way to restore Equilibrium to Avelion.
Mitologika is the series of picture books dedicated to the legends of the world, devoid of high-sounding terms or complex captions, since it is the fruit of my passion as an author and the illustrators of Casa Ailus, who follow me each time, toward forgotten or often even unknown legends.
We rediscover them, giving them new life through our personal touch, so that readers, by following us on a journey that is renewed in each volume, will be able to approach, learn about and explore something they have "heard about," but nothing more.
In the series The Creatures of Mitologika, again with illustrations by Casa Ailus artists, I explore the origin and various declinations of creatures that from myths live in our imagination, spanning literature, pop culture to everyday reality.
Delving deeper into dragons, mermaids, vampires, witches and more you will discover that there are creatures that are in human history from the dawn of time to the present day, adapting to be ever relevant.
