Amalea, in the year 342, after the foundation of Fiorinde. The time of darkness is over. The people of Amalea are about to clean the world from the last supporters of darkness and help the gods back to their power… Thorn, Chara, Telos and Bargh swore fidelity to Al’Jebal. Although the old man is seen as the former wiredrawer of chaos and the personification of evil, they get along with their new principle. And Chara even finds her real master in him. Only Thorn stays suspicious and follows his own plans. After a hard apprenticeship under the best of Al’Jebal’s supporters, the heroes are sent to their first mission far away from Ashrans and the Valianian Imperium. What the four do not know is this: The mission is one of three tests from Al’Jebal that are meant to prepare them for each of their fates. Telos discovers his true destiny during this first deadly mission at the Kabugna/Islands, Chara is confronted with a shocking realization of her own nature and Thorn has to face his past which directly takes him back to the Valianian Imperium to end what was once started. Meanwhile, the first signs appear that do not announce a golden time period at all. And while Chara, Telos, Bargh and Thorn each seal their fate, Al’Jebal starts to prepare for a war that will shake the world… “There is a principle that resembles fate very much. It follows the same rules, results in the same thing and sends us on the same journey. It whisperingly talks of a beginning, of a change, of an end. Where the Gods have no power, there it is the Alpha and the Omega. This principle is called strategy. If it is supposed to be like this, then let it be. Everyone is there where he is supposed to be.” Series: Amalea: The last chaos/war during the third Dark Period was won by the supporters of order. In the year 342 after the foundation of Fiorinde, the people of Amalea believe that chaos, thus Evil, is defeated. There is only one who sees the world with different eyes. He lives in the South of Amalea, is famous for his army of Orcs and Assassins and is said to be one of the most powerful surviving supporters of chaos. His name is Al’Jebal. The chronicles of chaos and order is a story about the winding road of an Assassin, a war priest, a ranger and a barbarian. While they are entangled in the big war between the powers of chaos and order, they gradually discover the truth about the origin of the world, of humanity and of magic. During their contribution to the war they realize that the fate of Amalea is controlled by only a few and that the world is far bigger than assumed. Thereby they walk all paths – in light and in the darkness, between chaos and order, as murderer and lovers, as hunters and hunted… And until the end they are accompanied by a man named Al’Jebal. In a world which offers everything that ever existed in the genre of fantasy (Elves, Dwarfs, Dragons, Vampires, Werewolves, Centaurs, Demons and Gods…) a cosmos unfolds which is still completely strange to us. And the best known being carries this cosmos within itself – the human. Whenever a human is the center of a fantasy novel and is shown in all its facets, the bright and the dark ones, without any kind of extenuation, fantasy comes to life, turns into High Fantasy and transforms into Real Fantasy.
