Nexus of the Ancients
The first novel in the Serriya series introduces the world of Lezaria, a magical place full of elves, mages, and strange creatures.
Keolah only wanted to see the world and learn what knowledge she could find. But the world can be a dangerous place, full of guns, monsters, and dark magic. Even the machines and steamships commonplace in the world seem strange to her after leaving the hidden elven kingdom that had been her home for all her life.
The discovery of the Nexus changes everything. An abandoned magical construct was built by people long since lost to the world, promising to be the key to the multiverse. But first, the party must learn what it is, and more importantly, how to use it. To that end, old enemies must put their animosities aside in order to achieve a common goal.
Keolah's journey takes her around the world, by land and by sea, exploring ancient ruins and learning forgotten secrets. Along the way, she makes friends and enemies, and might even find a woman to love and spend her life with.
