When the Mother created the lands of Jordklode, Oeste, and Ungula, She believed in family, harmony, and love. Vita, growing up as a royal in the Kongeorn clan, has followed these beliefs most of her life, even when her brothers were sometimes a lot to handle. But when a dark omen of revenge threatens Vita’s family and the Mother’s world as she knows it, starting with the day her brother is to be executed, Vita is left with a vision and a quest to expel evil from Jordklode.
Amidst grief and uncertainty, Vita must take up the mantle as her clan’s first Queen. Together with her best friend, Adam, she must unearth secrets the Mother left behind, mend a frayed bond between kingdoms, and fight to restore peace against the darkness. But to rise higher, they must first fall.
"Exordium is a fast-paced fantasy with lovable characters and a wild, soaring setting. Jones pens a strong tale of magic, war, and the power found within oneself. This novel will make readers feel as though, through Vita and her journey, they've just been on the ride of their lives."
