About the Book
7th Blue: Xorn: Rude Awakening is the first book of many in a science fiction-fantasy action-adventure series. It follows a nine year old prince, Xorn Midus, and his misadventures that follow after he had been made a slave and thrown into the System. His father, the immortal dictator Syon Midus, begins a war in search of the artifact, the Tear of Archanon.
Though he is unsure of his fate, Xorn fights to get answers as to what happened the night his father killed his mother, Lady Oriah Midus, and started the goose-chase for the Tear. It doesn't take long for Xorn to learn about another child being held captive; Mika Indri, a ten year old daughter of a farmer who was orphaned at the start of the war.
After almost a year of being in limbo, the war finds its way to the mother-ship of Lord Syon and the guardians of the Tear, the Priest of Archanon, and they make a crash landing into Xorn and the other's lives. Aiden Mulch, the fourteen year old lone surviving priest is the only one who has a clue what is really happening, and the prospect is very grim.
During this exciting tale, the grip of reality is loosened and magic becomes more apparent when the destroyer, Klaravex, begins to awaken from his slumber. Mika, Xorn, and Aiden are forced to uncover the truth about how Syon defeated this god of destruction and came to power. Read with awe as our heroes interact and their friendships grow.
