A new fantasy book in 2020: What is the Sapphire Eruption about?
Four kingdoms located around The Void. Four sacred weapons, each infused with the power of one of the elements—fire, water, air, earth.
These four weapons allow Alomenta’s four kingdoms to maintain a delicate balance. But the world’s tense harmony is soon to be tested.
In a lost village, Noakhail arduously trains to learn the art of the sword. He remains unaware that when he was a baby, on the day the sky turned red, he was chosen by one of the two sacred fire swords to be the Ascendant Phoenix, heir to Firia, the fire kingdom.
Until now Noakh has lived with Lumio, his stepfather, as an outcast in the Aquadom, the queendom of water. But now that he is mature enough his stepfather reveals to him who he is—and that the time has come to return to Firia and claim the throne.
But even as Noakh sets out to claim his destiny, in the castle of the Aquadom, a coterie of young princesses dutifully perform the water-sword ritual day after day: one day the sword will choose which of them will be the Lacrima, the rightful heiress to the water throne. Everyone knows that such an honor will fall to the older sister, Katienne; after all, she is just like her mother, the queen. But will she be the sword’s choice?
Particularities of The Sword’s Choice: What makes this new fantasy series from all the others released in 2020 different?
Let’s see some particularities of this story that you will find interesting:
The world of Alomenta is a place where the color of the skin is not relevant, but the color of the eyes and the hair.
As said before, in this story there are four kingdoms (or better said, three kingdoms and one queendom). In these territories, the citizens not only behave differently but their appearance is different: the citizens of each of these kingdoms have their eye and their hair of a different color.
For example, the citizens of the queendom of Water, the Aquadom (where the first book in the series is set), have blue eyes and blond hair.
That’s something Noakhail knows very well. His brown eyes stand out too much in a blue-eyed queendom. As would his black hair if he didn’t dye it blond.
This is a story of motivation set in a medieval fantasy scenario
The name of one of the main characters, Noakhail, means “do not give up”. As a result, the boy will remember that he must keep fighting no matter what. He only has to remember his name.
