(Everlasting, Back Cover)
Long ago, the world was filled with creatures of all kinds, and divided into two kingdoms: Memiana, ruled by the humans, and Orutia, ruled by the fairies. Over time, the humans came to resent the fairies, and gradually took away more and more of their land until the fairies were relegated to a small section of the kingdom. But when Zechariah was crowned king of the land, and married Crystal, the beautiful queen of the fairies, together they vowed to restore peace.
All that changed when Queen Crystal died, not long after the birth of their daughter, Mertia. The king’s brother, Sebastian, filled with jealousy and malice, put into motion an evil plot to get rid of the king and the princess, and take over the kingdom for himself.
Years later, amid rumors that Princess Mertia might still be alive, young farmer Malachi Thlop sets out on a quest to find her and bring her back to the castle. His search results in much more than he had bargained for, and soon he joins a motley band of creatures on a mission. Together they are caught up in an exciting and dangerous adventure, as they seek to restore the rightful king to the throne and finally usher in an era of unity and peace.
(Everlasting, beginning of Prologue) Here is a story that can withstand time. A classic story filled with journeys and duels, romance, intrigue and lasting morals. A story that took place long before the world lost its sense of value in good character and just virtues; long before the beauty of nature was ignored and considered unimportant. A story that took place when the world was divided into just two kingdoms. No one today remembers this story, though it deserves to reside somewhere in our memories at least. It used to be a popular tale told over several evenings near the fireplace where the father would tell his children of Malachi Thlop and his beloved Azalea. A story once forgotten, I shall now bring back to light. A story that you, I hope, will not soon forget.
