Enjoy this excerpt from Kayla E. Green's poem in The Never Tales: Volume Two.
The Hero to Your Villain
By Kayla E. Green
I may be the villain in your childhood storybook
But the words are vile lies of the one known as Captain Hook
For the truth is, I was once lost in the London streets
When Peter Pan offered reprieve
From the chaos of my mind.
With pixie dust, I soared high
Turned at the second star on the right
And ended up in the Land of Never.
*For the rest of the poem, pre-order The Tales of Many: Volume Two.

Two young people from opposite sides of the Great Continent must make sense of their life.
Rune has grown up all of her life in the mountainous northern nation of Kansanai. As granddaughter of the Senior Elder, she has been a devout believer of the Vihishki gods her whole life. Yet, when a prophet challenges the Vihishki gods against his Aivan, the One Truth, everything she thought she knew is turned upside down. Will she be able to let go of the life she thought she deserved for something far greater than what she could have ever imagined?
Rolf goes through the motions of everyday life in the southern nation of Etalentin. Yet, his routine is disrupted when a voice claiming to be the one true God speaks to him. Listening to his heart, he follows Aivan, but he is thrown temptation after temptation on his journey. Will Rolf be able to resist the temptations in order to fulfill Aivan’s plan for him?
Aivan: The One Truth is a story about self-discovery, identity, and faith.
