Part 1: Vyrinterra
“Hi, my name is Shannon Price and I’m excited to give you a sneak peek into the world of my upcoming fantasy novel, The Endless Skies. This week, let’s visit Vyrinterra. Vyrinterra is an island and home to three of the magical races: the Horselords, the Bear-kings, and the people of the Sea Queen. Vyrinterra is magical land—food grows faster and the waters are clearer there, which is why the humans desperately want to reach it . Luckily, the island is defended by the Leonodai who live on the Heliana, which we’ll learn about next week.”
Part 2: The Heliana
“Hi, my name is Shannon Price and I’m excited to give you another sneak peek into the world of my upcoming fantasy novel, The Endless Skies. This week, we are visiting the Heliana, also known as the Golden City. This magical, floating diamond-shaped citadel is home to the Leonodai—winged lion shapeshifters who value loyalty above all things. The highest point of the Heliana is the Glass Tower at the top of the palace. From there, you can see all the way to their enemy’s lands on Balmora, which we’ll talk about next week.”
Part 3: Balmora
“Hi, my name is Shannon Price and I’m excited to give you a final look into the world of my upcoming fantasy novel, The Endless Skies. Today, we are visiting Balmora. Balmora is a windswept land with sparse forests and winding rivers. It’s home to the humans, who built railroads to get to reach the Cliffs where they battle with the magical Leonodai warriors. Balmora is also home to the fabled cure for a disease that’s ravaging through the Leonodai’s city. So what happens when the Leonodai try to go find it? Read The Endless Skies to find out.”
