STORIES FROM THE CIRCLE (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 22, 2010 05:30PM
Description: Stories from the Circle: Apprentice contains the first three books (Know Thyself, Riesa, and Oxinopses) chronicling the growth of "Caretaker of Existence" Miles Dean from the discovery of his calling through his apprenticeship to the powerful Guiding Caretaker Oliver Crucias. The Caretakers are a rare race of supernatural people who have been around since the spark of consciousness. With their array of miraculous powers, they are charged with the responsibility of altering reality and manipulating destiny to keep all of creation flowing toward the future instead of spiraling into complete annihilation. Earth is just one world in a macrocosmic circle of worlds, and Caretakers are born with a self on each world. Oliver and Miles (and hopefully Miles's apprentice, Luzciel) must journey in consciousness to their selves on all the worlds in the Great Circle to undertake Caretaker Quests that thwart creation's greatest enemies, the Breakers, who seek to bring creation to an end. In order to secure their victories, Caretakers grow to realize great powers, but in this latest generation, those powers may not be enough. “Enter into this existence, though it is dangerous and unfathomable. The fate of all creation rests in your hands…’
