9781602829602: The Seventh Pleiade

The début novel in a new fantasy series.

Atlantis is besieged by violent storms, tremors, and a barbarian army. For sixteen-year-old Aerander, it's a calamitous backdrop to his Panegyris, where boys are feted for their passage to manhood.

Amid a secret web of romances among the celebrants, Aerander's cousin Dam goes missing with two boys. With the kingdom in crisis, no one suspects the High Priest Zazamoukh, though Aerander uncovers a conspiracy to barter boys for dark spiritual power. Aerander's proof-- an underground vault that disappears in the morning--brings shame on his family and charges of lunacy. The only way for Aerander to regain his honor is to prove what really happened to the missing boys.

Tracking Dam leads Aerander on a terrifying and fantastical journey. He spots a star that hasn't been seen for centuries. He uncovers a legend about an ancient race of men who hid below the earth. And traveling to an underground world, he learns about matters even more urgent than the missing boys. The world aboveground is changing, and he will have to clear a path for the kingdom's survival.

From the Author :

The Seventh Pleiade is my first novel, and naturally it's very special to me. I had been working on a series of stories about Atlantis, which turned into a lumbering and jumbled manuscript. I knew that individual novels, based on time period and characters, needed to be pulled out of that. I'm drawn to non-traditional narrative forms, so the story of a young man living through the fall of Atlantis became the first book in the series.
The title The Seventh Pleiade (PLAY-dee) comes from astrology and mythology. The Pleiades are a star cluster in the Taurus constellation. They are relatively near to Earth, and can be seen by the naked eye at night. Likely for that reason, the Pleiades were an important part of mythology and folklore in ancient times around the globe.
The Greeks believed they were the daughters of the titan Atlas and his wife Pleione. In Native American legend, they were the Seven Maidens who were placed in the sky to protect them from giant bears. In Japan, they were known as Subaru, and the star cluster became the trademark of the Japanese car manufacturing company of the same name.
The Pleiades have not figured into Atlantis lore previously, but a particular story about them piqued my curiosity and generated a connection. One star in the cluster is not as visible depending on the time of year and weather conditions. That phenomenon created the legend of a disappearing star or a "lost daughter." As ancient astrologers interpreted changes in the night sky as omens, I imagined that naturally a disappearing or reappearing star would have engendered prophecies; and if it appeared around the time that Atlantis was falling apart, the star could have been taken as a sign of hope, or alternately a foreshadowing of doom.
That's part of the mystery that The Seventh Pleiade's main character Aerander must figure out: what is the meaning of the Lost Daughter returning to Atlantis? And is it possible that she can help save his kingdom from disaster?
