The World of Oreni
Authors & Team
The royal family taught the people to worship the founders as Gods instead of embracing their own power. To restore power to the people, Ruby decided to follow in the founders' path and become a God himself. In this pursuit, he burned temples and caused chaos, which led to his exile. He is currently writing his story in his own series, 'Prince of Erosia.'
The Gods of Erosia were once mortals
“I had a vision of the Gods of Erosia when they were still mortals, living on the planet Oreni. I told my friend Elliott Lash. It turned out he had envisioned a planet just like Oreni, and he’d already written languages and history! We created religions, philosophies, and much more. That’s the backdrop for our series, Night Gem.”
“Twenty years ago, I fell in love with this orb. I looked inside, and I imagined galaxies coming to life. I saw two teenagers being pulled into that microverse, where they turned into light, and they met other characters who had orbs in other parts of the world. A universe unfolded, with complex relationships, foreign species, and monumental events.”
“In that magical moment, Night Gem was born. The orb is on the cover of the first book, because that’s where it all began.”
Erosians are encouraged to explore their shadow and honor their beauty. They believe that any human trait is reflected in the Angels who created the world.
This philosophy is unveiled through a system of archetypes, a language which Aera was the first to unlock. This gives her the key to combat the Night Gem and awaken Erosia.
