9780692606407: The Jestivan (Erafeen)

The first novel in the epic fantasy series readers are comparing to Rick Riordan and Marie Lu.

The world is crumbling, and it's up to ten elite students of magic to save it.

Bryson only wants to surpass the legend of his dead father--a fairy tale hero whose name holds weight throughout the Light Realm. But after sixteen years of mediocrity, the world has given up on Mendac's son.

Despite his failures, he is invited into a group of elite students known as the Jestivan and elected one of two captains with nothing to show for it but his last name. Requesting the respect of his peers is one thing; talk is cheap. As they are thrust into a millennium-long feud between two kingdoms, he must earn their respect by leading with composure.

But pressure mounts as someone dear to him is taken and the real identity of his father-figure is exposed. He will infiltrate foreign kingdoms, hunt kings, and fight celestial beings to dispose of those who wrong not only him but his friends.

For Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and The Young Elites fanatics.

"The best book I've read in years."

From the Author:

To my fellow epic and young adult fantasy enthusiasts,
Erafeen's conception was in January 2011. While I was an avid fanatic of the Harry Potter novels and eventually Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles, the idea truly birthed after an unhealthy consumption of story-rich manga such as One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Fairy Tail.
I set out to craft a fantasy series much unlike the norm, teetering between the storytelling I learned from both mediums: novels and manga. Don't get me wrong. You'll see familiar tropes, but the story's essence is truly unique.
It took nearly six years of worldbuilding through daily (and often times hourly) brainstorming and outlining sessions before I even released the first book. Of course not all of it is in the first book, but expect a steady dosage throughout the series.
Readers seem to have realized these qualities, too. They point out the story's quirkiness (a style I developed from reading manga) while also praising the originality. And they're quick to acknowledge the intricacy of the story's delivery. My fingers are crossed that you, too, will find as much joy reading this series as other readers have. Maybe this is the diamond in the rough, and you've just stumbled upon it.
I love to interact with my readers. Email me at davidffarris@erafeen.com if you want to talk.

From the Back Cover:

His dead father: a legend.His father-figure: an icon.
Sinister truths are buried within the powers that raised Bryson. And as these secrets begin to shake his faith in those great men, disaster shakes the world around him.Several of Kuki Sphaira's ten kingdoms are in shambles from mass bloodshed, royal assassinations, and rekindled ancient wars. And it will take more than political, military, or even magical power to solve such problems.
The Jestivan--a band of ten elite students, including Bryson--become the unlikely heroes when one of their own goes missing. Now they must infiltrate foreign lands and track down kings, bringing them face-to-face with secrets better left unknown.
Most drown in their demons. Some try to escape. The Jestivan are the rare few who will do anything just to find them ...And they are the ones who learn the highest rule of power:
To build trust, one must lie.
