The Halloriyaan (Virian Companions Book 3)

by Xanxa Symanah

Third of the Virian Companions

Third of the Virian Companions, telling about the lives of various members of the Halloran family and their allies.

Trouble is brewing in Viria, exacerbated by the circulation of propaganda suggesting that the influx of immigrants poses a threat to the native population. There is a growing resentment towards off-worlders, fuelled by clever and charismatic community leaders, resulting in acts of terrorism against non-Virians.

When Justeen takes up her post as resident priestess in a small Virian town, she has no idea that her family will be exposed to danger. She tries to bring the community together, but some people refuse to embrace her ideas of peace and take action against her.

In the aftermath of a devastating terrorist bomb attack, Justeen has to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and move forward for the sake of her young sons.

The twins, Ari and Nye, are determined to carve out worthwhile careers for themselves and make their mother proud. There are many challenges ahead for the brothers as they grow and learn.

Can the close-knit family hold together and overcome their troubles? Will they manage to deal with their enemies and secure a peaceful future for the next generation?

About the Author

Sarah Xanxa Wallace (AKA Xanxa Symanah and Xanxa Raggatt) has always been involved in creative writing. In fact, before she learned to read and write, she would make up stories, telling them to anyone who would listen, or simply reciting them to herself when she lacked an audience.

She is also a poet, having had some of her poetry published in an anthology which was brought out by a Brasilian University publishing house. Some of her poems have also featured on drug abuse awareness websites, youth club websites and other creative communities online.

Her main areas of work are epic and urban fantasy. She has written seven fantasy novels with the collective title The Virian Chronicles and is currently working on offshoot novels collectively entitled The Virian Companions and The Vyrdigaan Prophecies. She has also written one detective novel and published a collection of her dark poetry.

She is married to the home-based progressive rock musician Ian Vincent Wallace (formerly Ian Raggatt) and she wrote a novella to accompany one of his albums, The Presence, telling the story of the concept in her own words. The novella was distributed with the first batch of CDs released but is now only available in ebook format.

Besides creative writing, she has a keen interest in fantasy and science-fiction movies and TV shows, travel, languages and music.
