Once upon a time he dreamed of becoming a dragon rider. Once upon a time he had magical friends. Now Torik is a woodcutter who has moved to his king’s castle out of friendship for the prince heir.

Now King, Lambert is almost killed in a revolt and Torik’s magical friends resurface to save him. Both exiled from their hometown, Torik and Lambert wander in search of a new home with two of Torik’s childhood magical friends – a young Genn healer and a dragonette.

Twins with different destinies, Babirye and Tamika were born in Sannia, up north, where people have pale skin and golden manes. When they were children, their merchant father moved the family to Agharek, where their dark skins were less conspicuous.

But when the twins developed different attitudes, their father sent them to the Queendom of Maadre. Now Babirya is a shaman and Tamika a strong warrior woman who go back to Agharek to their brothers and magical friends.

A journey through the world, meeting people and seeing places. With a dragonette. A Silvery Earth novel.

Setting: secondary world high fantasy, with characters wandering all over it

The series is called Silvery Earth because the world is the common thread. This is sociological fantasy where characters live and die, and history unfolds through the centuries.

Unlike other fantasy worlds that never change through the millennia, the Humans of Silvery Earth grow and change under the incredulous eyes of the Magical Races (Genn, Sila, Waiora and Fajrulo). Not even the Immortals could foresee the evolution of those pesky, short-lived barbarians.

This unconventional fantasy is character-oriented, inspired by our planet’s cultures but not exactly our planet. Most protagonists are outsiders, trying (or not) to fit in their world/culture/hometown, who often end up wandering through the world looking for a place to call home.

Explore this secondary world through novels, novellas and short stories collections. And a graphic novel. And a strip.

There are different civilizations to explore: the Amazons, the India-and-Persia-inspired southern kingdoms, the typical medieval Europe northern kingdoms, and the still mostly unexplored Islands Empire (East Asia inspired) and Black Empire of Nera (Africa inspired).

Some books are definitely adults only for various reasons, and are clearly labeled. The rest is to be considered for all, with some m/m collections that are clearly labeled as such.
