Bound by Fate Tour: Guest Post

What It Means To Be Foramar

By Kado, Foramar of the shadow stalkers

I have spent my life training to be the next Foramar for the shadow stalkers, but it wasn't until I was forced into the position under grave circumstances that I finally appreciated what it really meant. It's so much more than being a leader of my people. The shadow stalkers were created by the shadow people for a very specific purpose. I have not been Foramar long enough to fully comprehend that purpose, but I do know that the survival of the human race is at stake, and we were created to assure our species does not become extinct.

There are legends that our race once existed in the billions, and it's possible we may have even originated from another world. If that's the case, I imagine some disaster must have caused us to leave our home world. It's likely most of our species died in that time, and we are the descendants of the only survivors. As it is, our species can only survive on a small portion of our world, the Serpent Isles. This lastest war with the Galvadi has decreased our population to below one million. If things continue as they are, it could be much less than that within months.

The survival of the entire human race now rests in my hands. Auren is the key to our survival, but she is out of my reach for now. If she doesn't survive or if she is lost to us, what hope do we have? The shadow people can only do so much for us.

I see now the importance of following their code. If I, as Foramar, do not uphold that code to the very letter, it could be disastrous for us all. Zain has learned that the hard way and now his daughter is paying the price for his lapse in judgment. If we survive this crisis, I and every future Foramar will need to learn from his mistake, so it is not repeated.

The Foramar is more than a leader and guide for the shadow stalkers. He is the father of all mankind.


Auren escapes the Dark Isle to find things are worse on Appolia than she imagined. Very few have survived the invasion of the Galvadi Empire, and even her best friend, Jade, has gone missing.

While attempting a rescue, Auren is captured and faces abuse and torture at the hands of her enemies. She knows as long as she can hide her true identity, she might succeed in helping the Coalition, but one of the Galvadi knows she is the delohi-saqu. For his silence, she is forced to pay the ultimate price.
