THE BASKET MAKER
In the once innocent world of Etérna, a man with no memories of the past is taught the art of basket-weaving while he starts searching for his lost identity. In his journey, he meets Katerina, a captive earth girl, the last possessor of the lost flute Irkána, an item whose music brought harmony to his world for six thousand years. A bond forms between them but duty drives them to different directions.
TWILIGHT OF A WORLD
Two parallel journeys, one destination, one purpose. The ex-king of the destroyed city of Alkyonis sets out for the far north, to seek the one man in Etérna who could teach him the forgotten art of war. The princess of an eastern kingdom flees her enemy with her baby daughter, destined for the north and for the same purpose. Along the way, they both seek supporters who can catch the vision of creating an army of warriors who will drive out the enemy who has invaded their world. Before they make it to the north, the peaceful effect of the flute Irkána wears off and the era of Etérna’s innocence ends.
LIKE THE PHOENIX
Back in her home, Katerina starts searching for the flute Irkána, which has fallen into the wrong hands with fatal results. Her health deteriorates to the point of risking losing her life and she is forced to take a very painful decision. Years later, the flute finds its way to the hands of a young orphan girl, who doesn’t know that she is destined to fulfill the prophecy of an alien world.
CORNERS OF THE SOUL
POETRY AND SHORT STORIES
Suffering, whether in the world around us or personal, can very often lead to the death of dreams and hopelessness. We feel fragile like something drifting in the storm and life becomes a prison from where there seems to be no way out. New hope comes when we set our eyes on a higher vision and turn our attention to the One Who holds the world’s foundation. Even though we might still identify with the loveless and the lonely, our new hope gives us the strength to embrace what we have and go on.
