Arash Vol. 4:
Jhanmar– World Travellers
By Elke Schuster
The eagerly awaited final book
about Livia and her Arash family
Following the success of the first three novels of the Arash series, “Shadow Hunt,” “Raytara – Judgement of the Stars” and “Tasagalt – Cross of the South” the final book of the series was eagerly awaited. “Jhanmar – World Travellers” will be released in November 2014.
Arash, the stars of the four-book series, are new players in the world of fantasy creatures. They are descendants of the stars, more human than vampires, but powerful enough to be alluring.
The heroine of the first book, Livia, is finally one of them but has to encounter unimaginable dangers to save herself and her new family.
Lost shadows, forgotten memories, inexplicable happenings – what’s wrong with Livia’s perfect new life? Is it being manipulated or is it just an illusion?
Yearning for the truth, she struggles against the man who claims to love her and his dominance over her life. Will Livia manage to escape and re-enter a world threatened by dark forces? And what on earth is translocation, a dangerous, mad and forbidden concept that the whole Arash world is whispering about?
Livia’s Arash family crumbles, disrupted by mistrust and hatred, her human sister Sophie is dying. Will Livia find a way back to her friends and be able to save her one true love, Cassius, or will Eamon’s world claim her forever?
“The Arash books started out as a story for young adults but I soon realized my adult test readers couldn’t put them down either. Many of them could identify with the heroine, Livia, and lost themselves in her love affair as well as her incredible adventures,” says Schuster. “That’s what reading is about for me: having fun, enjoying yourself, entering new worlds, and basically making you feel good.”
