The Secret of Alviton


The Secret of Alviton

by L.V. Clark

GENRE:   YA Fiction - Fantasy

Alviton was a strong, prospering country, full of light. The people worked side by side with the Fae, creatures blessed with magic. But that was before the war. Massive genocide and fear of the Fae touched everyone as brother turned against brother. Years later, and still reeling from the war, the new generation has clawed and connived to remove the stains left by their predecessors.

Sheltered from this reality, Nydia lives her life relatively happy and ignorant, surrounded by smoke and mirrors. But eventually glass shatters and smoke settles. As she struggles to unveil the truth about herself and the people around her, danger lies on the horizon, threatening to extinguish the small flicker of light in this dark and twisted country.


“Magic is as real as you and me. It flows, like life, throughout everything, though humans don’t necessarily have access to it, though I hope to figure out a way,” he mused. 

“Well, have you ever heard of a human using them to share visions like this?” I asked. 

“Heh,” he lugged over two large blue and red books, “I haven’t even read of the Fae doing something like that. So, you’ve actually given me something else to be looking into.” 

I wrung out my hands, feeling anxiously defeated. “So, tell me more about yourself Brian. You’re obviously different from most people in our kingdom,” he asked, not really looking up from his desk. “Well, I’m a merchant. I’m married to a designer named Lillian. I grew up in Valicitor,” I started. 

“Ah, Valicitor? That’s interesting.” 

He looked at the map again. “You wouldn’t happen to be related to the new governor of that city, Kale Valen?” 

A mix between pride and shame that I couldn’t quite pin shadowed over me. “Yes, he’s my brother.” 

“No kidding? Heh,” he crossed his arms and propped against the table. 

“Please tell me how a man like Governor Valen and you get along?” 

I looked at the ground, conflicted. “It’s okay. It must be hard, but rest assured my family and I are doing everything in our power to stop the branding, isolating, selling, and abusing our citizens because they lack a piece of paper stating their lineage. Such an outdated practice that has only been proliferated by greed and selfishness.” 

A ray of light shone through the shadows of my mind. “You are?”

Q&A With the Author 

What did you enjoy most about writing this book? 


I started writing this book simply to have an outlet of creative energy. So I think that's what I enjoyed most; being able to express myself creatively.


Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about? 


Currently, I'm writing the second book of The Stygian Curse series. It follows Nydia, Grey, Saoirse, and others as they navigate the new lives they have been tossed into.


Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future? 


Yes! I'm expecting to write three books for The Stygian Curse series, possibly four! Hopefully, if all goes well, I will have the sequel to be finished next year.


How long have you been writing? 


Technically, I tried to start writing in 2010, but only started dedicating real time to it in October/November of 2020.


Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?


Thank you so much for your support and love of reading. I hope that these books brings something enriching to your life.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Expect more to the story!
