The Unborn Child (Virian Companions Book 4)

by Xanxa Symanah

Fourth of the Virian Companions

Fourth of the Virian Companions, focusing on the life of Anwyn Menehari.

The Goddess Rayledni bestows a gift upon Lyle Menehari in remembrance of his great love for his second wife, Rayleen Shanahan, who was pregnant when she relinquished her physical body and melded with Ledni, Goddess of Fire.

Still wracked with guilt over the mistakes he made with his first child, Lyle is determined to do better with the daughter gifted to him by Rayledni. He names her Anwyn after a tragic lost love from the past and brings her up in a manner which reflects his dual lifestyle — the free-spirited tribal life in the Sartorian desert combined with the privileges and duties of the Carpathian Way.

At a tender age, Anwyn learns of the prophecies governing her life and finds her own way of dealing with them. Her family and friends give her support and she strives to meet all the challenges in her fierce and unconventional manner.

Share in the triumphs and tragedies of her life from childhood and adolescence, into marriage, motherhood and onwards. Can she play her part in the ancient prophecies and still find happiness? Does she have the requisite strength of character and leadership qualities needed to fulfil her pre-ordained role?

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.
