Book Description:

If she’d known the consequences, would she have made the same choice?

An underground, sophisticated community hidden for thousands of years, ruled by the sacred laws handed down by the Ancients.

A young Healer — forbidden to pair and committed to the service of the Great Spirit.

A handsome protector — compelling but out of reach.

A powerful Chieftain — who demands obedience above all else.


What if…

The People’s existence is thrown into jeopardy when the young Healer, Adia, breaks a sacred law of the Ancients, putting everyone at risk of discovery by an outside world that will only seek to destroy them.

When her Chieftain Khon’Tor, discovers what she has done, he sees the Healer’s disobedience as an affront to his authority, and fears her actions will trigger The Age of Shadows — a period of terrible trial foretold by the Ancients.

Hated by her Chieftain’s mate for reasons she does not understand, Adia faces the biggest battle of her life as she clings to her faith and searches for the strength to endure the consequences of her Chieftain’s anger.

She was prepared for him to be angry.

She was prepared for him to punish her.

But she was not prepared for Khon’Tor’s Wrath.

What Readers Said:

★★★★★ This author is an expert at developing an epic world. Very well-developed world and characters and plot. In the vein of a Star Wars or Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia. Truly, a great work of creative art.

★★★★★ I have to say that if I really knew at the start what this series was about I may have passed it by. What a mistake that would have been.

★★★★★ This is one of the best series I have ever read. I love how the characters relate to their Great Spirit and the caring for each other. The story line is awesome.

★★★★★ A very unique series, I bought the entire set. I love the perspective, and the uniqueness of this series. I like the female perspective, being a grumpy old man myself. Ms. Roberts, you have a winning series here. I look forward to more of your work! Great job.

★★★★★ The story is full of heart and quite memorable. I find myself thinking about the decisions the characters made and wondering what I would do in the same circumstances.

★★★★★ This is the most addictive book series I’ve read in a long time!

Reviews for the Book

While the basis of the story has been told before (let's be honest, what story these days isn't a somewhat retelling of previous story?), the framing of this story is quite different. The events of the story are being told by Sasquatch instead of humans. They refer to themselves as The People. What I can only assume are American Indians are called the Brothers and White People are referred to as Waschini. At the start of the story Adia, who is the Healer of the People of the High Rocks, is delivering herbs to the medicine woman of the Brothers. She comes across a Waschini infant after his family had been massacred. Even though it's against the rules of the People, Adia brings the infant home. This results in a lot of problems for everyone, even more than Adia herself could have ever realized. The story took turns that I didn't even see coming. Although the major issue that happened in this book was mostly resolved (or at least covered up), I'm excited to see how it's delt with in the rest of the series. I want to see how the leader pays for what he did. I especially want to see the leader's mate get her just desserts. I'm also really hoping that Adia and Acaraho end up together even though she's not supposed to ever partner with anyone. I found myself enjoying this book a lot more than I expected and can only imagine that the rest of series is as good as this first book. - thirteenlilsykos

About the Author: Leigh Roberts

When Leigh Roberts is not caught up in the fantasy world of Etera with Adia, Khon’Tor, Acaraho, Oh’Dar, and Nadiwani, she is enjoying the beauty of the rural area in which she lives with her husband and several spoiled Pomeranians.

An avid reader since early childhood, she grew up on superhero comics, science fiction stories (Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov), and television shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and Star Trek.

Star Trek, The Original Series (TOS), had a huge influence on her thinking and taught her the infinite possibilities of imagination—and how to split infinitives. Spoiler alert: you may find a Klingon word or phrase dropped in here or there, or a blatant, unapologetic recreation of a famous Star Trek TOS scene!

She didn’t start her writing career until later in life. She loves being an author, and her heart’s desire is to be writing for as long as she can prop herself up in front of a keyboard!

Roberts currently has three series in the Etera Chronicles: Series One: Wrak-Ayya The Age of Shadows, Series Two: Wrak-Wavara The Age of Darkness and Series Three: Wrak-Ashwea The Age of Light.
