TFS Blurb
The First Sin
No home. No honor. No future.

That's what Tårik knows to be true when he and his superior officers are exiled from Clan Tsinna. Årdrakin society is harshly intolerant toward people who don't belong anymore, and Tårik has become the most hated exile in clan history for one reason: he and his friends survived the ambush that killed the clan leadership.

But it seems there are greater forces at play. The Mother Goddess visits Tårik, and She brings anything but a blessing. Årdra speaks a passage from Älår's prophecy, which presages the apocalypse.

He tries to ignore its significance, but as his struggle to survive takes him away from his homeworld and leaves him stranded on an alien planet where everything he eats makes him sick, Tårik realizes it's true: Årdra has a fate in store for everyone.

The fate She has in store for Tårik and his friends may be
the worst fate of all.

Emergence
The Whole never forgets.

528 years after the events of The First Sin, the skarastaja take to the stars and announce their presence to the galactic community.

Senmatu, the Holiest of Holy Ones, wishes to lead her people on a holy crusade against the årdrakin, the still-hated skydemons of old.

But the galactic community is far more diverse and expansive than Senmatu and her people expect. Finding themselves ill-prepared for the galaxy they've just joined, Senmatu must now fight for acceptance...and for justice.

Sin Beyond Redemption
Your world belongs to us.

918 years after the events of Emergence, the skarastaja have become the alien trash of the galaxy, and it's up to the årdrakin to maintain the Reclusion that keeps them penned in.

Then, a surprising discovery: Berwen contains senecíní, a rare and highly prized crystal previously thought to only occur on the årdrakin homeworld.

This discovery has serious ramifications. The Årdrakin Empire's economy depends on monopolizing the production of senecíní stardrives. Controlling the availability of the crystal is exactly what Empress Shazarel knows she must do, even if it means triggering the next sign of Älår's prophecy.

But after seeing the disastrous, murderous way Shazarel handles herself, Zalanthír, the leader of Clan Yodesí, sets his sights on Shazarel herself. He will do anything to remove her from power, restore honor to the empire, and hopefully stave off progression of the apocalypse.

What People Are Saying

Brammah torments her characters in ways reminiscent of George R R Martin but their resourcefulness in surviving her evil schemes had me turning pages until the surprising conclusion! I eagerly await their next adventure!

What People Are Saying

I’m so happy and honored to have been a fan of this for so LONG! The story always keeps me coming back for [more], and I love reading (and re-reading) the chapters. I feel like if the characters were to pop up in real life, I would know them. Keep up the good work =3

Seriously though, your writing is amazing and I really have no criticisms at all! It flowed well and didn't have any strange breaks or didn't have anything that was super confusing. I cannot wait to read more!

Mat
The First Sin Reviews

What People Are Saying

Ciradår is such an asshole, but quite an interesting character too, I am loving it so far! Like where one moment he is taking cheap shots at them being comfortable with the "lax standards" and the next he is stepping up to lead them through danger. But my gods these poor buggers are being put through the wringer! The scene with the tail made my eyes water.

Desdemona
The First Sin Reviews

What People Are Saying

I do like darker stories ... So that definitely works for me. I am hit and miss with Sci-fi, I got burnt out on it when I was younger (most of my family are Sci-fi fans), but I like that you built different cultures really well. I do like world building, especially if it feels unique and The Whole is an interesting mix of hive mind and being self aware. ... It seems like a well thought out series and I am curious to see what happens next.

Chapter Four was a great chapter, and I can see why it was so draining for you to write. That sandstorm was great! I loved the little culture tidbits. Ok, next chapter now, yes?
