The Lion's Apprentice

What happens when two worlds in peril collide? As Aquis and Earth struggle to fight a war on both sides, a young apprentice with a unique gift may be their only hope.

After the death of a human, for some, the life of a miathian lies ahead. A race imbued with magic, halfway between a human and demigod.
Fiaran is a warrior apprentice with a unique gift hidden from him. When a mysterious individual threatens peaceful life in Aquis, the young apprentice and his mentor are tasked with discovering what is going on in the shadows, meeting with history long forgotten along the way.
Back on Earth, humans fight a futile war against miathian exiles and rebels. Can they succeed in their fight with the help of two unlikely allies?
