About the Book

Although the Tu-Grik-Ng, with the aid of Tobias and Ak-Malia, had succeeded in protecting their homes, Abahrazha faces an even greater peril. Kalor is now ruled by a madman, who vows to resurrect the ancient and powerful kingdom of Arcalia to exact his vengeance on all of Abahrazha.

Yet the prophecies of a dying religion speak of this time when the fate of the world would rest in the hands of a child - one of royal blood and one who would be innocent of the destruction of Kalor. Help, nevertheless, comes from unexpected sources and people. But nothing is ever as it seems, for the words of prophecy were written in the holy Merot - the sacred texts of the Brothers and Sisters of Paradise. The gods of power had forewarned many eons before. . .

A universe lives inside us all,
And empires alike will crumble and fall.
Transforms the balance of what elements be,
Eight to seven, four to three.
In Paladine blood hides the power it owns,
The innocent, guiltless, awakens the stones,
The fate of a world in the hands of a child.
Unlocks to release the unfettered and wild,
The weight that was added is lessened by one,
And the cycle of torment at last is undone.

About the Author

Michael Anthony Cariola was born in 1956 and is the son of nationally renowned artist, Robert J. Cariola. He was influenced in the arts at an early age with a love for classical music and literature.

Having been born and raised in Long Island, New York, Michael now makes his residence in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his partner Jeri and her son Jonathon. Michael has two beautiful children, Noelle Joy and Michael Frederick.  

 Michael, a true Renaissance man, has worn many hats working as a musician, an electronic technician and a salesman. However a brief stint in environmental lobbying gave him a broader knowledge of the ecological impact that modern man is having upon our planet. With a deep need to express his dismay with mankind’s unwillingness to alter the path of destruction he’s on, Michael found his voice and expression with the publication of his first novel, The Singingwood.

The Chronicles of Abahrazha now continues in book 2, Arcalian Apocalypse and will conclude in Children of Prophecy.
