Shalaeyah! Hello!
Welcome to The Spine of the Empire.

Shalaeyah means 'hello' in Tyra Tarkush. Tyra Tarkush is the 'first' language in the world of my book series. 'The Spine of the Empire', in that same world, is the communication network of the Empire, the organization and government of the races in the universe.

In this world, it is the website concerning all things related to my main book series, the Adventures of the Trinity and the One, and its world. Here you can find updates on the series, random musings, and in depth posts on pieces of the world.

The Series (1-4)

The Adventures of the Trinity and the One is a science-fiction/fantasy book series that follows the divine group called the Trinity and the One. Their adventures take them all across the universe known as Tyra Kolaq'blegae. Tyra Kolaq'blegae is home to over thirty alien races, trillions of years of history, and an Empire of essentially immortal beings.

About the Author: Sarah Sunday

The series, its world, the characters, all of it, are things that I have developed over the course of my entire-thinking life. I love weaving narratives together, breathing life into these characters, and building this world up. This is the enduring passion of my life that has neither a clear beginning nor an end in sight.
