The story of Wlvn and Flern, him and her, two lifetimes of the Kairos, is written in counterpoint, like two melodies that harmonize with one another at different points along the way. Sadly, the story, as written, does not break into little bite sized pieces. I want to maintain the schedule of three easily digested posts per week on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, but I understand the limited attention span of some people. Twenty-seven weeks is too long, especially when the story jumps back and forth between two people who live 586 years apart. If you held the book in your hand, either digital or in print, and read it in a day, a week, or however long it takes you to read a book, it would be one thing. I am not Charles Dickens to break the story into 3-6 rather large parts to serialize in a monthly magazine. Back then, Dickens did not have to contend with movies, television, streaming, the internet, cell phones, and the million other entertainment distractions we have. So, I have concluded that the only way I can share this story—these stories is to separate them and share them individually, even as I did with the stories of Greta, Festuscato, Gerraint, and Margueritte. and even though it gets strange in the middle I hope you will follow and enjoy.
Her village is overrun by an army from the east ruled by a powerful sorceress. Flern and her friends escape, but they have a quest, to find the secret of making bronze, to make weapons, and to gather enough brave fighters to set their village free. Of course, the Wicca is a very powerful sorceress, and she seems to be supported by one of the ancient gods. My hope is in the story, every time Flern picks up an empowerment from her reflection (Wlvn) you will recognize what is happening. To that end, it will be best to start with Wlvn’s story.
Wlvn, after 4026 BCE. 14 weeks (14 chapters).
The gods have a reason for empowering the young man. His people are enslaved by the Titan at the center of his universe. The gods want the Titan overthrown, but Odin promised that the gods would not interfere in any way. They expect Wlvn (the Kairos) to do the deed, and many of the ancient gods give him what they think he needs to be successful. Unfortunately, the god sent to spy on the Titan wants the Titan to stay in power and is secretly working on his own agenda. And the Titan has contracted with a space race to help maintain his power; and the “Gott-Druk” find human flesh very tasty.
The Strange in the Middle:
Wlvn and Flern, being genetic reflections, or as the Kairos sometimes says, identical twins of the opposite sex, accidentally double trade places with each other through the time stream and can’t figure out how to get back to where they belong. Wlvn, with all his new god-given abilities should be able to deal with a sorceress, provided the god supporting the Wicca stays out of it. Flern, however, even reflecting in a small way the gifts given to Wlvn is in no condition to face down a Titan. Just to think of him frightens her half to death.
When Flern shows up in the middle of Wlvn’s story, I hope you don’t get confused. Flern has her own troubles, and her story will follow, so bear with me. I believe this is the best way to approach this. You can always let me know what you think.
Wlvn first for 14 weeks
Flern second for 13 weeks
Avalon Season 9 (The final season) will follow Kairos in the West, Book 1, Reflections. By my (subject to change) calculations, that should begin posting on March 20, 2023. The travelers will at last get home to their proper time and place. Meanwhile, if you enjoyed the Avalon stories, they are available from Amazon as e-books or paperback, or from Smashwords, B&N, Apple, Kobo, etc. as e-books.
I recommend the prequel, Invasion of Memories which will give a good overview of the many lives of the Kairos as well as introduce some of the travelers. The pilot episode is still free in most places, though in the paperback (and e-book if you want) it is included with Season One.
To find all these books (and more on the way) look under the author’s name M. G. Kizzia. And remember, reviews are always appreciated.
