Below, you’ll find the show notes and links for episode one of the World of Azuria podcast!
Hello adventurers, and welcome to the World of Azuria podcast! In this episode, we dive into the world of Azuria with chapter one of Aurora, the prequel novella for the Age of Azuria high fantasy series.
My name is Beth Ball, the author of the Age of Azuria high fantasy series, which we’ll explore in this podcast. Some episode will sweep us away into the high fantasy world of Azuria with chapters from the novels and stories. In others, we’ll dive into the lore behind Azuria. I also hope to answer your questions about the world, characters, and more.
If you enjoy high fantasy worlds, immersive settings, nature-based magic, and vivid characters, this podcast is for you.
Let’s start our adventure!
In Chapter One of Aurora, an elven diplomat named Dorric Themear arrives on the coast of Caldara at the beautiful Aurora estate. He’s not there long before a beautiful human woman captivates his attention. Dorric soon learns that the woman in question is Lady Emelyee Amastacia, to whom the Aurora estate belongs.
Even before he speaks with Emelyee, Dorric’s inner romantic gets the better of him. Of course he would become immediately entranced by an already attached human woman! Her husband seems distant, but the sparkling eyes of Emelyee soon restore the elf’s rapture with the beautiful estate.
The next morning, Dorric accompanies Emelyee and her dear friend Aurelia to a small house on the estate grounds. There his attachment, in true romantic fashion, intensifies.
