About The Stone Guardians
By Kindrie Grove

Portrait of Kindrie Grove, Canadian Artist and Author.

Welcome to Eryos

A chaotic darkness has consumed the lands of Eryos. The fall of the twin empires left a collection of lawless realms where quest for power and the might of the sword hold sway.

 

Only Pellar in the north has the strength and vision to foster an age of peace and prosperity, allowing the kingdoms to emerge from turmoil. But a legendary enemy threatens to overwhelm Pellar, extinguishing that fragile hope.

Into this turbulent land, swords-woman Rowan Mor Lanyar must travel on a quest to bring an urgent message to the northern king – along with a slim chance to stop the coming darkness.

Torrin Ralor, a restless swordsman traveling to answer a summons from his homeland, comes to her aid. Their fates, it seems, are entwined. Together they must find a way to save the kingdom or die trying.

Behind the Scenes – A Synergy of Writing and Art

IMG_3157.jpg

As the world of The Stone Guardians develops, the cross pollination between the writing and the art creation has increased. Sometimes scenes for the books have come through first as paintings and sculptures. It is a rich and rewarding process and I am gratified to be able to share it with my audience. 

I am in the process of transferring the Patreon blog post here to my website blog so have a look through and see some of what I share of this on-going creative process.

 

I will still post links in Patreon and ArtStation as well as Instagram and Facebook.
