The Light and Shadow Chronicles symbol no. 8 – Valhalla Elite

Chronicle of Chaos 34 final file resized title and shield changed DPI flat

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

The LAST symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the bottom left of the shield:

Repaired shield Valhalla

 

This is the sigil of Valhalla Elite, a small band of elite soldiers within the Brotherhood of Shadow. This battalion of soldiers was set up by one of Vincent Wilder’s sons by the name of Silas.

After suffering greatly at the hands of Raven Lennox and Avalanche, Silas set up a Brotherhood equivalent of the elite faction, naming it Valhalla Elite. Most of the soldiers in this unit are other children of Vincent Wilder and his many concubines.

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Silas Wilder – Silas takes few things in life seriously and instead chooses to indulge in all manner of pleasures. Underneath his complacency, he is intelligent and cunning but his mind is starting to falter, giving way to visions and delusions. After a chance meeting with the Brotherhood’s shadowy adviser, the Bavelize, Silas decides to do everything in his power to exact his revenge upon Raven Lennox, before his waning sanity gives out completely.

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

The SEVENTH symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the left of the shield:

Repaired shield DUSK

 

This is the sigil of D.U.S.K – the Democratic Union of Separatist Knights.

D.U.S.K. is an independent nation set up by a mixture of deserters from both the Children of Light and the Brotherhood of Shadow. Disagreeing strongly with the politics of the eternal war, these people left Alcherys and Meraxor to set up a nation where everybody would be treated equal, regardless of their background, race or family history.

There are no characters from this faction in A Chronicle of Chaos, but stay tuned because they will be featured in an upcoming novel in the series!

The Light and Shadow Chronicles symbol no. 6 -Brotherhood of Shadow

Chronicle of Chaos 34 final file resized title and shield changed DPI flat

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

The SIXTH symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the left of the shield:

Repaired shield BofS

 

This is the sigil of The Brotherhood of Shadow. The largest army on the planet belongs to the Brotherhood of Shadow, a dark cult ruled by the Bavelize – a mysterious smoky creature of unknown origin.

Residing in the huge forested country of Meraxor, the Brotherhood of Shadow are ruled by Vincent Wilder, an immortal warlord locked in eternal battle with Callista Nienna – the leader of opposing army the Children of Light.

In A Chronicle of Chaos, the Brotherhood have summoned four demons to fight for them in a hope to shift the balance of power in their favour.

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Vincent Wilder – Cold and merciless, Vincent has ruled the Brotherhood of Shadow for over 130 years.

The Bavelize – Very little is known about the Brotherhood’s shadowy deity, aside from the fact that it only appears to select few, and even then after completing a specific ritual. It appears to know many things outside of a human’s understanding and has the power to travel between realms with ease.

The Light and Shadow Chronicles symbol no. 5 -Avalanche

Chronicle of Chaos 34 final file resized title and shield changed DPI flat

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

The FIFTH symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the top right of the shield:

Repaired shield avalanche

 

This is the sigil of Avalanche, a high-ranking elite battalion within the Children of Light’s army. They are led by Raven Lennox who is feared and renowned across the world as a formidable warrior.

Recruitment is very limited and every entrant is handpicked by Raven himself. This means that each soldier graced with a position in Avalanche must be talented and extremely disciplined. If there’s one thing Raven Lennox will not tolerate, it’s a lack of dedication.

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Raven Lennox – Chaos’s father and his tutor, Raven plays a huge part in shaping his destiny, and acts as both a shoulder to cry on, and an unyielding mentor in the ways of battle.

Deacon Thialdor – Deacon is another exceptional warrior who trained as Raven’s apprentice (a highly coveted position.) He is not just Raven’s apprentice, but also his half-sibling and best friend. Deacon often calms down raven’s fiery temper, but has his own issues to contend with as he fights a devastating sickness that ravages his body.

Soren Nitaya – Trapped for eternity in the body of a ten year old, Soren is cute and deadly at the same time. He has taken it upon himself to protect the angel Ceres due to the unique weapon that nestles deep within him.

Chronicle of Chaos 34 final file resized title and shield changed DPI flat

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

The FOURTH symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the top left of the shield:

Repaired shield angels

This is the sigil of the angels. Usually residing in the kingdom of Heaven, angels’ souls are tied to their realm and they cannot leave Heaven unless they tear their souls in two.

Their existence revolves around protecting humans from the influence of demons, by spreading love, compassion and justice among the people of the Human Realm.

When the demons are summoned to fight for the Brotherhood of Shadow, the angels take it upon themselves to protect the humans before their world is corrupted and destroyed.

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Ceres – A little girl to the eyes of humans, she is actually hundreds of years old in her true angel form. She lives in the Human Realm, dispensing wisdom and advice, and is never far from her loyal protector, Soren Nitaya.

Samael – A magnificent golden angel of huge proportions, Samael is dedicated to honour and justice. He is the offspring of the leader of all angels, Providence.

Icarus – Headstrong, noble, and committed to truth and glory, Icarus is passionate about ridding the Human Realm of any and all demons.

Tenshi – A true pacifist at heart, Tenshi refuses to use violence, no matter the situation. She aids the humans by sending them courage, faith and hope.

Anna – The greatest archer the world has ever seen, Anna is unbeatable with her bow, and her incredible beauty often lures people into a false sense of security.

Cassandra – Cassandra is a true descendant of the warrior angel, Justice. She fights with the knowledge that in order to uphold all that is good in the world, sometimes you have to fight for what is right.

The Light and Shadow Chronicles symbol no. 2 – Demons

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

 

The SECOND symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the bottom right of the shield:

Repaired shield demons

This is the sigil of the demons who reside in Hell, their souls tied to their dimension until they are released to walk the Human Realm. In A Chronicle of Chaos, four demons are summoned from Hell to fight for the Brotherhood of Shadow against the Children of Light.

Their symbol is known as ‘the black feathers of Hell’ and works as a counterbalance to the angels’ symbol (which can be seen opposite).

 

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Anathema – An offspring of Malice, Anathema is vicious and cruel and thrives off torture and murder.

Anathema poster new.jpg

Phantom – The commander of the demons, Phantom is powerful and deadly, huge and engulfed in fire.

Malla – A trickster who specialises in illusions.

Anubis – A hulking animal-like monstrosity who kills blindly and indiscriminately.

The Light and Shadow Chronicles symbol no. 1 – Children of Light

Chronicle of Chaos 34 final file resized title and shield changed DPI flat

The cover for my newest novel A Chronicle of Chaos features a shield with eight symbols carved upon it. Each of the symbols represents a different army, faction or group of people within the series. Over the next eight days, to complement the release countdown, I will be posting about each of the symbols to give some background on the armies you can expect to learn about in Chaos and the upcoming novels in the series.

 

The first symbol I will be talking about can be seen on the right of the shield:

Repaired shield CofL.jpg

This is the sigil of the Children of Light-one of the two main warring armies in the series. The Children of Light are led by immortal warrior queen Callista Nienna. Callista is the matriarch of her family, leader of her armies and the ruler of the entire nation of Alcherys (the country where the Children of Light are based).

Their symbol, known as ‘the four daggers of eternity’ was designed by Callista in her early years, when she was first rallying support for her army. She saw the symbol in an ancient text of unknown origin called the Book of Alcherys and decided to take the symbol as her own.

The four daggers represent strength and honour, pointed inwards to stress the importance of looking upon your inner self, and maintaining relations with family. In the centre is the swirl of infinity. This represents the eternal war, brought about by the elixir of youth, the reason why Callista and her army will never age.

Characters from this army that you can expect to see in A Chronicle of Chaos include:

Callista Nienna – Warrior queen and matriarch of the Children of Light.

Hayden Lennox – One of Callista’s husbands, and father of many of her children.

Ryan Thialdor – One of Callista’s sons and a powerful, high-ranking officer in the army.

Jordan Thialdor – Another of Callista’s sons. As a child genius, Jordan became the head of the tactical division in the Children of Light and now masterminds many of Callista’s military operations.

Mikhail Bavelize – A young man who joined the Children of Light after defecting from the Brotherhood. Mikhail has an incredible power, but is reluctant to use it.
