~ Arkeh’s Story ~
Trapped in the middle of a oncoming war, Arkeh must decide whether she will desert the nation she was born to rule or abandon the prophecy her best friend died to protect.
This untitled work is Gabrielle’s second novel in her series, The Stories of Nokri’ah. It is a Young Adult Epic Fantasy with an underlying Christian allegory. She is currently writing this novel and estimates it to be around 19 chapters.
Since her birth, Arkeh’s mother had kept her and her twin brother, safely away from their father, the arrogant King of Eshaem, in an endeavor to raise her children to follow the Shama’aen King of Evcadeh. As the two twins reach maturity, the older son choses to bid his family farewell and become a knight of the Shama’aem King, Malekh. Years past and nothing is heard from her twin. So following in her brother’s footsteps, Arkeh leaves her mother to become a knight of Malekh.
Even as she arrives at the gates of Malekh’s palace, Arkeh discovers a terrible truth. Filled with hurt and anger, Arkeh learns about an uneducated farm boy who is the heir to a Shama’aem prophecy which she, too, has a role in. But now, her estranged father is demanding her back, having learned about the traitorous actions of his twin heirs. Will Arkeh desert the nation she was born to rule or abandon the prophecy her friend died to protect?
