Volume II: Book Four: Carnivore
Book Five: A Curious Light
Book Six: Angari’s Temptation
A small planet spins in a rainbow-hued nimbus. Her name is Windfallow; sister world to Earth, fashioned by the same Creator and given innocence as her cloak. In the dim past the worlds were connected and their inhabitants passed to and fro upon both worlds. But planet Earth was tempted, fell and was corrupted by evil. The gates between the worlds were closed by the Fallowfolk themselves to prevent that evil from wounding their world.
The world of Windfallow differs from Earth in three respects. She never fell to the temptation of sin. There, angels are still visible, and the common building material is gemstone. Many lifetimes and generations of lifetimes have passed on Windfallow, where time is measured on a scale more closely resembling that of the Eternal Plane. Windfallow is not Heaven. But Windfallow is magnificently innocent.
Now, a demon has discovered the tiny planet and despising its peaceful inhabitants, claims it as his own. Only allowed into the Barrier Wood which surrounds the planet at the equator, the demon known as Jackal brings in thugs from Earth to seduce the world. Using the fabulous gemstone as bait, he manipulates its destruction.
Through what he believes is an accident, Zachary Thomas, a teenager from Earth, arrives in Windfallow shortly after the first incursion. Four times the demon seeks to destroy Windfallow. And four times he is defeated by Zachary, by the Angari, (And Alari or Angel), and the council of fallowfolk convened to resist the invasion. The fourth attempt ends as the demon is cast into outer darkness and annihilation.
A few more centuries pass and a space ship happens to see a planet surrounded by a ‘curious light’. An away team sets down to explore and one of the crew happens to have an antique family idol…
The double trilogy, The Chronicles of Windfallow is published in two volumes.
Angari and his glorious companions rose through the blue-green sky of Windfallow. As the home he’d known for centuries grew small and remote, the Alari concentrated on the brilliant light toward which they moved. Brighter than a billion stars, it beckoned them onward. When they had reached the outermost brilliance, his companions halted. Golden put his hands on Angari’s shoulders and spoke for all, “My brother, we are now parted for a time. You go to the Creator as His beloved servant. We will meet again when all have come home! Farewell!”
Angari was alone in the brightness. He walked now on lush grass surrounded by sights and sounds so pure it made him weep. Far ahead he saw figures coming to meet him. Could it be? Stiltz? Sparrow? Zach? One by one they came to meet him. Silent, but with smiling faces and outstretched hands, they walked with him. Others joined them, kings and queens he had known through the centuries, joined in song and the brilliance increased. It came not from stars but from the multitudes who came to greet him. And there was more. He knew the One who waited for him. Yes. He was home.
As Angari moved into his home, a small planet slipped into orbit around the light. Bathed in swirls of color, she shone with ruby, diamond, emerald, amethyst….
