The Window Man (Virian Companions Book 2)

by Xanxa Symanah

Second of the Virian Companions

Second of the Virian Companions, telling the back-story of Lyle Menehari.

Born into a high-ranking Carpathian family, Lyle’s future is all mapped out for him, or so he thinks. When he meets a mysterious new tutor and learns about his true nature, a whole new world of opportunities is opened up for him.

Training to become a spy and assassin turns out to be very different from what Lyle had expected. His new tutor has some extremely unconventional teaching methods and Lyle is constantly challenged while he prepares for the role which he is destined to perform for his family.

Throughout all his trials, Lyle is inspired and influenced by the enigmatic legendary assassin known only by the code-name of The Window Man, a figure whom he has admired since his childhood. He discovers that he has far more in common with his hero than he ever imagined.

Learning to deal with loss and disappointment is all part of the experience, as well as coming to terms with a particularly cruel prophecy. Can he overcome the prophecy and carve out a happy future for himself?

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.
