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 univers.

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 and in depth posts on pieces of the world, Carathoukiea.

The Characters of the series commissioned by various artists: Erika Hollice, AR Sullivan, and Haasio. See below for exact attributions.

Where to Start?

The best way to get into my world and my work is to read it in release order (instead of chronological order). This means starting with How to Stop Wildfire and then continuing with the rest of the series. The early books of the series give you a good introduction of the world, and from there you can continue onto The Lost, my short stories, my spoiler-filled blog posts, and the Database.

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.

Just a quick run down of the steps in this commission of the Jurak’s Day splash by AR Sullivan.

The most important bit was the aspect...
