Sanctuary Series

 RELEASE DATES ARE TENTATIVE
(See FAQ for more detail on release dates)
 
Epic Fantasy

The world of Arkaria is a dangerous place, filled with dragons, titans, goblins and other dangers. Those who live in this world are faced with two choices: live an ordinary life or become an adventurer and seek the extraordinary. 

Cyrus Davidon leads a small guild in the human capital of Reikonos. Caught in an untenable situation, facing death in the den of a dragon, they are saved by the brave fighters of Sanctuary who offer an invitation filled with the promise of greater adventure. Soon Cyrus is embroiled in a mystery - someone is stealing weapons of nearly unlimited power for an unknown purpose, and Sanctuary may be the only thing that stands between the world of Arkaria and total destruction.

  1. oh man...
    I just finished reading a haven in ash. I gotta say so far ive not being enjoying it as much as the sanctuary series, but the again sanctuary series was legendary and it would have been hard to beat.
    anyway for the actual story i have to say-destroying terreas in an untimely volcanic eruption-WHAT-i thought this series was going to be about the last village in luukessia.
    second thing-well done the warrior woman-went down fighting-good girl.
    third thing-it seems at the end of the book the children are taken by protanians/dark elves, so we can guess its aisling or terian whose gonna show up again?
    Finally, who the hell is baraghosa-i mean that is one seriously twisted dude???
    It looks as if the good scourge is jasens mother.

    1. Just wait! It gets even better in book 2! The dynamics of this one are a little different - rather than a bunch of personalities bouncing off each other in guild, it's basically three people. More will be coming, including a...familiar face from Sanctuary, in book 2.

      RE: the end - that's not Protanians or dark elves, but rather their world's equivalent of people of African descent. The world is widening. Aisling and Terian will not be showing up again...in this series, at least...

      Baraghosa...he is one dark mofo, but you are going to be blown away by what's revealed about him in book 2/3.

      And as for that Scourge...it's not Jasen's mother.

      It's someone we've met before in the Sanctuary Series.

      Delete
    2. my suspicions are that baraghosa is dead mortus reincarnated.

      Delete
    3. No, no, Mortus is dead and gone. No reincarnation for him. Once he died, the tower that was catching souls lost its power, so he just went off into the hereafter with no soul-spider to catch him.

      But Baraghosa definitely has a tie to the world of Sanctuary as we know it thus far (though we've never met him before).

      Delete
    4. my next guess would have been the gatekeeper, hut as youve said weve never met him, possibly cyrus' son who has adopted the evil path?

      Delete
    5. if the scourge are one of the souls of the dead (for lack of a better way of explaining it), and you say we have seen them before, does that mean it is one of the past people who have died? (im thinking its either on of the kings or important figures from lukessia, either that or its one of the people who died during sanctuarys service before Mortus died, as thats how the scourge got released, so im thinkingg like narstron, cass etc)

      Delete
    6. Yes, it's someone we know from before who died.

      Delete
    7. just remember its a girl tho...

      Delete
    8. If Scourgey is someone we've met before then it must be someone that died before Mortus. The four main women I can think of that satisfy that requirement are Niamh, Vara's mother, Eruditia(sp?) and Marei. For a start, Vara's mother and Eruditia don't seem like the nuzzling type, so I'd count those two out. Furthermore, I feel like Niamh and Vara's mother hadn't really been dead long enough to be completely "scourgified" by the time Mortus died, although obviously that's speculation.

      One last factor is that it seems like stronger characters retain more of themselves (i.e. Drettanden). Niamh and Vara's mother aren't particularly exceptional. Therefore I'd lean towards Marei (although obviously I could be completely wrong.) She'd also used up most of her strength at her time of death, unlike Drettanden, which would explain why she's not a gigantic, extra-powerful scourge like him.

      Obviously I could be completely wrong on this one, but that was my logic. Before reading the above comments, I also thought that the people on the rescue ship were dark elves, and that Terian was going to feature due to his relation to Marei.

      I haven't put as much thought into an explanation for Baraghosa yet, although hopefully I'll think of something when I get round to doing a re-read of the series.

    9. damn.
      that is some awesome speculation.
      i personally believe baraghosa is pradhar-turned-bad but thats just my two cents

      Delete
    10. in regards to terian-there could be one of two scenarios: in revenants, he is old and he says goodbye to cyrus one last tim, or that cause he has noctus he is still fit and healthy, battling the scourge that have overrun arkaria every other day and joins forces with cyrus.

      Delete
    11. my comments keep on diasappearing afte i post them?????

      Delete
    12. I'm pretty sure that Robert mentioned once before in a rather cryptic fashion that Niamh would reappear as a scourge, so it's probably her.

    1. well i expect hell be killing off scourge for quite a while now theyve swarmed around reikonos. it was mentioned before that a steampunk theme might be in this series which i think will be difficult to write in. Make the steampunk theme too small and it makes revenants nothing special, but make it too large and you will have enemies who are better with machines than the ghostly heretics, which could be a disappointment. No pressure though, Crane. XD

    2. Nathan, I must have completely missed the scourge crossing over into Arkaria....when did that happen??

    3. Nathan's getting ahead of himself...it happens about five years after the Sanctuary Series ends, and he only knows it because I mentioned it in response to a question here. You can, however, see a hint of it referenced in the Coda to LEGEND.

  6. Just went back and read 4.5 and 5.5 quite a few months after reading the main series and Tales. Really enjoyed those details. It's been a while since I read the main series, so I forget how Erith returned to sanctuary after the events of 5.5, but what happened with her at the end of 5.5? She was killed, and dragged into a tunnel by Aisling. I'm assuming she was just resurrected in the background or something?

    Also I may have forgotten Olia Lepos popping up book 6 or later, but I was curious as to whether there was any closure. The last we saw of her she was blind and ill, so I expected Terian to bring her to the palace to live or something.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good questions. Yes, Erith was resurrected at the end of 5.5, but "off-screen," and by the only healer available - Dahveed. Because they have history (see the Sanctuary Tale "A Princess of Sovar," there would have been a whole scene that would have been completely unrelated to the story at hand and wrapping things up, so I let it happen off the page rather than show it and slow the ending pacing of the book to a crawl.

      As for Terian's mother, I think we can assume that yes, she lived out her days in the palace, increasingly unmoored from reality and living very little past the end of 5.5.

      Delete
    2. Ah I see. Thanks for the reply. As I was reading I was sort of expecting an interaction between Malpravus and Erith to clarify Erith's actions later in the main series books, which is why I thought to ask the question. I'd completely forgotten that those two knew each other already somehow.

      One last question I have is about Terian becoming a paladin. Presumably he doesn't just forget his dark knight spells, so isn't he a heretic in the eyes of the rest of the world? Considering the fuss caused by Cyrus learning a wizard spell / the general treatment of heretics, it seems odd that Terian didn't suffer repercussions. Admittedly, I'm unsure how this works in general with dark knights and necromancers, as it seems that the dark elves operate under different rules to those imposed by the gods that aren't Yartraak.

      Delete
    3. If Terian hadn't ended up at the top of his city's Leagues after 5.5, it's possible he might have seen some blowback from learning those spells, yes. Since he was, though, there wasn't really anyone to oppose him/punish him, since the Saekaj Sovar Leagues answered directly to the Sovereign. I believe there's a line about that somewhere in HERETIC because I just reread it a few months ago and can faintly recall some discussion of it by Terian.

      Delete
    4. yeah and terian would have just ripped through them with noctus anyway.

      Delete
    5. One final question (for now, anyway) Erith. What the hell?! How and WHY did she turn to Malpravus?? What did he have over her? She has never seemed like the power hungry type and always seemed to be very loyal. Menlos Irontooth's betrayal really hurt me as well. Are these questions, specifically Erith's, about betrayals answered? I can understand why Menlos's betrayal may not be answered as he seemed to be a "throw away" character but Erith's truly hurt my heart.

      Delete
    6. Admittedly it’s been a while, but didn’t Malpravus answer the question behind Erith’s loyalties in HERETIC when she revealed her betrayal?

    3. Oh thank goodness. During the series, I somehow skipped over Sanctuary Tales, I wish I would have gotten it sooner but I didn't realize it was available until right before I started Master. Well I just bought it last night and I'm hoping it will not only answer some other questions I have, Aisling and Erith being traitors?! *gasp* Those tramps! But I'm also hoping it will fill the time until Revenants is released. By the way, is Terian, Aisling, Cora, etc gone forever since Revenants is set 1000 years in the future? :(

      Delete
    4. Well, Cora died in Legend, so she's definitely gone. I guess you'll have to wait and see on the others.

    5. Oh yea, that happened so quick, I forgot she died! Oops. I just finished Legend too so I'm surprised I forgot. What about Mendicant? Did he become a tyrant? I hope not. Will it touch on that at all? I know the godly weapons slow aging drastically so what about all the people Cyrus gave them to? I have so many questions and I'm sorry to keep asking, I'm just so ready for this next book! (I REALLY hope Terian and Aisling aren't dead and gone. And I REALLY hope Mendicant's story is wrapped up as well.)

    6. This book will not answer all your questions, because...come on, that's not ever how I've done things. We will definitely explore the fate of Terian, Aisling, the goblins and all others...in the fullness of time.

  12. Why was Cyrus able to say no to the dragon (can't spell his name) and why was Alaric freaking out when he heard about it... By the way loved the whole series can't wait for the next book

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. firstly, the dragon's name is ashan'agar.
      Although quite subtle, Cyrus was able to say no because of something to do with him being son of quinneria, who supposedly taught him how to resist.
      Didn't notice Alaric's freaking out, but perhaps because he was worried he would hav to explain to Cyrus the true story of Cyrus' parentage. I'm more interested in seeing how much of Arkaria has survived the scourge, and whether Isabelle will pop up again.

      Delete
    2. Ashan'agar I believe is how his name is spelled (the dragonlord) I can't answer how Cyrus was able to resist, I'm curious as well. I'm assuming it's because Cyrus is descended from Varren Davidon? Great question that I'd like to know the answer to as well

      Delete
    3. This is just barely touched on in WARLORD, and since people keep asking this very question, I have to believe I totally failed to get across what I'd intended to convey.

      Quinneria taught Cyrus the basics of magic. She also taught him to say, "I see you," or something similar, when he looked someone in the eye.

      Except she didn't *exactly* teach him that. What she did was teach him the association that built on the basics of magic she'd taught him in order to create a spell that kills an enchanter's ability to seize your will.

      Anyway, I put the threads in throughout the series on this explanation and then apparently failed to tie them together by the end of book 8. Alas. At least I didn't miss any other glaring plot holes (intentionally).

      Delete
  13. I finished the main series and I really love it. I ran through them in December during the break. I am really excited for the next book.

    There are some question which is hanging that I did not figure out from the book.

    Why did Alaric not disappear into ether to escape the capture? How did Curatio disappear into ether? There is an explanation for Vara but I am not sure how that work with Curatio. Also, what leverage Bellarum used to make Vidara betray the group?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Alaric didn’t escape because if he had, they’d have gone after Cyrus and/or Vara next. So he sacrificed himself to that fate in order to save them.

      Curatio came to awareness of what Sanctuary was and was sort of...ushered in. He talks about it a little in book 9.

      Bellarum didn’t need leverage. Vidara saw which way the wind was blowing and figured Cyrus and co didn’t have a chance, so she tried to sell them out and failed.

      Delete
    2. Thank you for your reply. Then when they beat Bellarum, Alaric could have escape right? Why didn't he? He still knows what happen to the world even before they beat Bellarum.

      Delete
    3. Alaric had no idea Bellarum was beaten until Cyrus showed up to get him. He actually told Cyrus to leave so Bellarum didn't catch him there. I was upset about Vidara selling them out too. Vara was supposedly "soooo important" to her, and yet she sells out her husband? Did she think Bellarum would allow her to live, even knowing what happened to the other gods? Yeah, right. I'm curious about the gods beyond and wish they would have been talked about more, how did Bellarum get to the God of evil and how did he kill him? Why couldn't he get the the God of good? Hmmm.....

      Delete
    4. How come Alaric has no idea when he seems to know what is going on while being torture? It also implied that he helped Cyrus more than once, again, while being captured.

      I have not read 4.5 and 5.5 yet so I might have missed some information.

      Also, do you have any plan to write the story about Santuary and its founders (Raifa, etc.) I am curious about how the founding members backstory and how Curatio comes back and reunite with Alaric after Sanctuary appeared.

      Delete
    5. Alaric was getting his information fed to him through Terrgenden, so after Gen bit it in LEGEND, he was cut out of the loop.

      The founding of Sanctuary is likely to be shown around book 20 or so, as the current arc is mapped out. I'm saving it for a special occasion, and I think - as things are currently planned - that will be the last book of the series, and it's probably going to be the one where I bring things around back to the beginning.

    6. Thank you! I am looking forward to it.

  14. Loved the ashes book but felt it was way more shorter than any other of the sanctuary, regardless glad to have another one to read, couldn't put it down.keep trying to read other books with elves dark elves wizards etc, but I keep comparing them to your work and can't get in to them.

    1. Future books are all going to be shorter. Writing these massive books and selling them for $4.99 has proven to be a really, really bad idea for my wallet (editors charge by the word, longer books take two to three times as long, proportionally, as shorter books due to complexity) and also leaves me close to burnout (which is why you got no Sanctuary Vol. 9 this last year). As far as I know, I'm the only independent author out there who ever released a 306,000 word (CRUSADER) or 260,000 word (LEGEND) book for as low as $4.99 regular price, and it's proving to be pretty unsustainable. While my peers are out there writing stuff that top the scale at 60,000-80,000 words and charging $3.99 for it, I'm trying to tell a longer and more engaging story but getting kicked in the wallet because most people don't want to pay more than $4.99 for a book.

      So, alas, future books will be shorter. Ashes books will hover in the range of HAVEN, and future Sanctuary main series volumes will hover in the range of AVENGER (117,000 words) or CHAMPION (147,000 words) and WARLORD (150,000 words). But the good news is, I should be able to deliver them more quickly than in the past, when readers had to wait an entire year between main-line books.

      Delete
    2. Up your price then! Maybe at least try it with one book and see how it sells. I would personally be more than happy to pay double or more for books of this caliber. You are selling yourself way short and every single one of your books that I have read are definitely worth more than $4.99. (Have i mentioned how much I love this series?)

      Delete
    3. Jenna, I got a notification about your comment (which I assume was posted here) but naturally blogger/my website has lost it. Posting this for others to see:

      Jenna Monday: "Up your price then! Maybe at least try it with one book and see how it sells. I would personally be more than happy to pay double or more for books of this caliber. You are selling yourself way short and every single one of your books that I have read are definitely worth more than $4.99. (Have i mentioned how much I love this series?) "

      No, I'm not upping my price for a couple reasons. A) Because doubling the amount I charge does not equal doubling my money earned. Probably 15-20% of readers balk at the higher price. That's not a ton, but it means instead of making 100% more, I make 60-70% more and potentially lose those readers forever. And B) Again, a book 1.5x longer takes 2-3x as long to write due to complexity, and furthermore, I don't enjoy writing books that long. They wring me out and leave me exhausted and unable/willing to write again for a few weeks. I finished the first draft of GHOSTS OF SANCTUARY (which is the length of AVENGER, for reference) and was working on something else the next day, excited to switch gears. So, while I'd like to be able to accommodate you and all other fans on this with longer books, those are the two key reasons why I think it's a bad idea and am not heading that direction right now.

      Delete
    4. Understandable. Sad, but understandable. I'll still be more than happy to pay whatever for your books, especially any you write relating to Sanctuary. I just blew through A Haven in Ash in less than a week, as usual, I couldn't put it down. I was even taking my kindle to work with me so I could read during any free time I had. I can't wait for the next one and of course, I am so pumped about Ghosts too. I've already loaded a gift card into my Amazon account so I can buy them as soon as they're released! No pressure though ;)

    1. It definitely disappeared after Bellarum’s death, but probably not after Mortus’s since he wasn’t the sole caster of it.

    2. Is that why the note containing the spell burned up in Curatios hand after Mortus was Killed? Didn't really make sense unless someone else was involved.

      Delete
    3. Yes. Bellarum was basically his co-author/caster on that curse.

      Delete
    4. And it's been awhile, but I think the reason it burned up is because he wrote it on a piece of conjured parchment, and since he died, his magic faded and the parchment disappeared.

      Plus, that provided a super dramatic focal point to show everyone, "OH SHIT THE HOPE OF THE ELVES IS GONNNNNE"

  18. I'm sorry to keep blowing up your blog with so many comments, my husband says I'm a lunatic, but I just want to say a few things. First of all, you have definitely become my favorite author after reading just one of your series. I'm about to start The Girl in the Box series now. I have lots of authors that I absolutely love but your writing style, I can't help but get sucked in. I've also never had an author actually respond and get so personal with their fans. That right there is amazing! Thank you, you book writing machine!

    1. I hope you enjoy Girl in the Box. It's got a very different feel than Sanctuary, but it's my best selling series so people seem to like it (Sanctuary is in 2nd place). It tends to move a little faster, pace-wise, too. Hopefully that means you'll be even more drawn in.

      As to replying to fan queries...it doesn't take too long, actually. The only tough part is that occasional person who gets salty, but, y'know, I control my sodium intake so I can deal with a little salt every now and again...

    1. 1. Presume he died or left prior to the events of DEFENDER, but in reality the author forgot about him. Whoops. I'll probably figure out a way to fit him into the second series...or something.

      2. Terrgenden is the same race as the Protanians, but probably comes from their equivalent of Europe, whereas Arkaria is kind of like England. Which suggests that their kind still exists elsewhere in the world.

      3. The governors from the end of LEGEND? Become the elemental gods. (I think that's the name I used for them, but hell if I can remember since it's been getting close to two years since I wrote the book and can't recall using "governors" for much. If this doesn't answer your question, let me know which book/in what context you mean "Governors.")

      4. I've thought about a lot of things. I'll tell you nothing of the rest of the world, though; I'd much rather show you in upcoming books.

    3. Don't worry Crane, it was said in Alarics story in legend that the pacem died in the slave revolts.

    4. Whew. I can't keep track of all the minor threads as well as I might want. In my defense, though, I'm writing like three series myself and co-authored three others at the moment. Gotta end something soon so I can get some brain space back or else I'm gonna start forgetting my kids names or worse - and perhaps fatal - my wife's.

    1. This has been happening a lot lately, so on a suspicion, I checked my spam filter and it turns out that while Blogger (my web host) can't figure out when an ACTUAL spammer posts a spam post complete with spam link, they've done a fecking marvelous job of sidelining about twenty perfectly good posts you lot have done.

    2. i reckon if i wrote spamspamspaam 100 times blogger would fail to pick it up. Maybe if you include a keyword in your post it gets submitted e.g.Arkaria or Sanctuary

    3. Arkaria Sanctuary
      It worked!!!
      Anyway-would you be able to authorize certain regular posters to post on this forum cause the situation is giving me all kinds of grief?
